Captain R.F. Scott, Good Moonlight At 7 A.M., Broke Camp Very Quickly
Hut Point. Good moonlight at 7 a.m.—had breakfast. Broke camp very quickly—Lashly splendid at camp work as of old—very heavy pull up to Castle Rock, sweated much. This sweating in cold temperature is a serious drawback. Reached Hut Point 1 p.m. Found all well in excellent spirits—didn’t seem to want us much!!
Party reported very bad weather since we left...
Roald Amundsen, Easter Was Over To A Sigh Of Relief
