Prawn cocktail anyone?

Another beautiful day on Petrel Island, and another fishing trip, far more successful than the last one I described. Part of this morning's catch is shown in the photo above.

The spot we went to was the same as the one we visited two days ago, but the ice scenery was entirely different. In two days most of the bergs had drifted to new positions. Some of the larger tabular ones had lost parts of themselves through calving, and one of them had flipped on its side. We just missed seeing a large chunk calve off a tabular berg. We heard it though, and saw the resulting wave and ice-debris: impressive!
