The James Clark Ross leaving

April the 12th. To day the ship left taking all none wintering personnel. We sent them off with flares and in return the captain sounded the ships horn.It was a strange feeling knowing that there are only 22 of us left here for the next seven months. The mood was quite, for me this is the point of no return, all through the summer there have been planes and ships calling so I've had the chance to leave but now the last ship has left, thats it. This is easily the hardest thing I've done to be away from my family for such a long time. Anyway winter has truly started now so I have my climbing trip to look forward to and the Antarctic winter.
