December 2007

We had lots of seasonal weather at our December meeting because Sue Price showed us an extremely professional DVD of her experiences in the Antarctic.  A year ago, she travelled on the Explorer II, the more up to date sister ship to the one that sank early this winter.  We had maps to follow the route from Argentina via Tierra del Fuego, the Falkland Islands and South Georgia to the Antarctic Peninsular.  We ‘ooh’d and ‘ah’d at the penguins and Weddel seals, especially the babies, but weren’t so enthralled watching the predatory skuas or the ugly male elephant seals, even though we knew that they have their place in Nature’s scheme of things.

During the break the committee served delicious festive refreshments to our tables.  Kath Silman and Sue Price had equal points so share the cup for ‘Flower of the month.’  Five lucky people went home with raffle prizes.
