The weather is a bit naughty

Bit rough in the Drake Passage. A side wind of 35 knots makes breakfast interesting; chairs and coffee cups tumbling about. The ship pitches and rolls along at 10 knots a hour and we are confined to indoors as the decks and windows are getting a wash from the waves.

100 years to the day since Oates staggered out the tent saying, "I am just going outside and may be some time.".
