The following day, the glacier was covered in clouds and the strong
winds did not allow to do any sophisticated work on the glacier
stations. So we stayed at the base, preparing upcoming work and using a
small window with less winds and a bit of sun to have a look at the
nearby sea elephants and the frozen Potter cove. The landscape just
looks amazing with the ice sculpures forming from sea ice due to tidal
movements, some even show a certain resemblance to gigantic pancakes.
