Scott’s Diary, 26 August 1911

“Just before lunch the sunshine could be seen gilding the floe, and Ponting and I walked out the the bergs. The nearest one has been overturned and is easily climbed.  From the top we could see the sun clear over the rugged outline of C. Barne.  It was glorious to stand bathed in the brilliant sunshine once more.  We felt very young, sang and cheered—we were reminded of a bright frosty morning in England—everything sparkled and the air had the same crisp feel.

“Climbed the Ramp in the afternoon, the shouts and songs of men and the neighing of horses borne to my ears as I clambered over its kopjes.”
