Final operations!

Stéphanie Pavoine. Based in Dumont D’Urville station

Knowing how to adapt!

Stéphanie Pavoine. Based in Dumont D’Urville station

Impossible to carry out an operation this morning. Finally we can work after lunch. The program on board has changed. We must be back in three days. It has passed quicker than I expected.

We have to begin work this morning at 10h; the contingencies of the passages at sea dictate our operations after lunch.

Icebergs in sight!

Stéphanie Pavoine. Based in Dumont D’Urville station

Morning free. We are sailing along the Mertz glacier. It is splendid, lost in the end of this gigantic world.

A touch of nostalgia.

Stéphanie Pavoine. Based in Dumont D’Urville station

Seasick!

Stéphanie Pavoine. Based in Dumont D’Urville station

I am startled awake by Anne. One station to do. In turn, I wake David. It is 8h. We would have loved a little more sleep.
