Captain Scott’s Hut – 26th Nov 2009

Today we visited the base hut of Captain Scott of the Antarctic. It’s not far from where we’ve been diving at Cape Evans. One of the girls from Carey came out with us and brought the key. We drove the Piston-bully there between dives. It was a beautiful, quiet, touching experience I think for all of us. Everything is perfect and untouched. The stores are still on the shelves. The sheets are on the beds. The papers lay on desks as if just put down. Everything is one hundred years old. And all of it is as Scott would have seen it before leaving for the pole. He died, exhausted in a tent not 60 miles from here. I felt sad to think he never had the peaceful feeling of relief coming home to this place.
