Base Y Conservation Team
After getting the Emergency Hut re-felted and weather-protected, we had a lovely visit from the MS Fram yesterday evening, who brought us a nice care package from Port Lockroy! The IAATO expedition ships are incredibly helpful to us at UKAHT, often delivering supplies and people, as well providing fresh water, showers, and treats (things like fresh fruit, tasty bread, and packages!). We had campers ashore for the night, and early this morning, along with the campers, two big bags of mail left the island destined for points afar. The Fram, now our trusty mail ship, will deliver the mail to the Post Office in Port Stanley, Falkland Island, in a couple of weeks, where it will be sorted into the Royal Mail system and eventually end up at lucky door steps. It is a good adventure for a post card!
