December 20, 1912: “Summer and sunshine” at Cape Evans

–from Tryggve Gran’s diary published as “The Norwegian with Scott”–

20 December. Summer and sunshine. We’re thoroughly enjoying the life. Nothing to think about, nothing to do–we just lie and plan the future. Terra Nova can’t be so far away.” [The Erebus ascent party had safely returned to Cape Evans]
