It’s always a tradition to have a BBQ on Australia Day (26 January) and even in Antarctica it’s just not right to make exceptions. So after a day exploring Antarctica we broke out the grill on the back deck and cooked up some snags and steak under the crisp blue skies of an Antarctic summer day. The weather really played the trump card and after days of freezing cold and grey skies the weather treated us to a blazing hot sunny day (well hot by Antarctic standards means over zero). The ship was surrounded by spectacular glaciers and the sheer cliffs of the Errera Channel. A long way from Australia but a great place to celebrate all things Aussie!
