Crossing the Circle, Antarctica 2011
We took turns landing at Port Lockroy which has a museum, gift shop & post office. It is also a working British research station that was operated by 4 women scientists this past year. We were one of the last tours of the season & they were shutting down for the winter. We sent postcards at the post office, but the last pickup had already come & gone...the next pickup is November 2011. Today was my sister's birthday so I sent her a postcard. Sorry Amber...I think your b-day postcard is going to be late! So crazy to think of our postcards sitting in that little red metal mailbox the entire winter season. We also got a stamp in our passports here!
