BANG, BANG, BANG GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR, on thurs 7th dec 06 at 6.20 am, this was the noise i was woken up to. It felt like we were in turbulance, with the entire ship shaking, grinding and grimmacing at whatever had just happened. I jumped out of bed wondering, now fully awake what was going on. I had a quick shower, holding onto the rail as the onslaught continued. whatever it was, you felt the ship didnt like it either. I walked briskly to the outside deck, then BLOODY HELL, i was gobsmacked at what i was lookin at. This was the site i was woken to.
The horrific noise was the 1st icebergs bashing into the hull of the ship, as we arrived into signey, south orkney islands. It was an amazing site, the clouds looked so moody while the iceberg at the bottom left looks so fresh, likes it ready for "G & T".
This is signy, south Orkney islands, another BAS station, along with some of the locals, which aren't that friendly!
