Well yesterday we left Rothera at about 3pm saying our fond farewells to the 21 staying behind for the winter. It bought back so many memories of when we were waving as the ship left, the feeling of emptiness,solitude and excitement.
I wish all those staying behind for 2008 winter to have good luck and a good season.
We depart in the same weather we arrived Dark,Cold and snowing, I am sure there's apart of all of us that wishes we were staying for the winter.
But time to move on to pastures new, you can't stay away from reality forever.
Well that is probably the last time I will see Rothera and the end to what has been a brilliant adventure and experience. One that very few people will and have ever done.
Now it is time to look forward to being reunited with my family and the adventures ahead.
