Saturday 25 Nov. [Actually November 24]

Had to stay put today as well. Same gale from NE with heavy, thick drift.

It has eased a little this evening and also backed ENE’ly. Drift nearly stopped. Prospects good for tomorrow.

As usual, we have enjoyed the dog meat together with the dogs. We are all keen on it.
