    Goodbye Thomas.

    We're anchored here until late Wednesday, and it's peaceful and quiet on the ship with the engine off. Well, peaceful and quiet except when deck work is in full swing.

    Grinding and chipping and banging and painting... yes, even t...

  • Halfway point

    Blogpost by nicole - July 25, 2005 at 11:33

    It's a beautiful Sunday. Warm enough that the hammock is out on deck for the first time this trip, but nobody's using it. Pretty much everyone who has the day off is hiking on shore. For some though, their duties are keeping them busy.

    You ever commute to work, and find your office building missing when you get there? That's probably what it felt like this Monday morning for University of Maine glaciologist Dr. Gordon Hamilton.

    He was commuting to his place of work (a glacier o...

  • Nice spot

    Blogpost by nicole - July 21, 2005 at 9:33

    Unable to find a good anchorage further down, we traveled all the way to the head of the fjord. Pete (chief mate) is driving now. On the bridge with him are Hettie (second mate), Hughie (pilot), Gordon (glaciologist) and Dave (chief engineer).

  • Counting icebergs and the morning view

    Blogpost by nicole - July 20, 2005 at 10:22

    We are back in iceberg country and that means every six hours, either Martina or I need to count icebergs, estimate their size, and record the ship's location, sea and air temperatures. Martina did the 11 p.m. count last night so that meant the 5 a.m.... Read more >

  • Why is it always so hard to find good parking?

    Blogpost by nicole - July 20, 2005 at 10:09

    It's 11:30 at night. The sun is just dipping below the fjord walls, and Arne doesn't like the drift of things.
