September/October 09

16th of September 2009 Wintertime,
the mountains are covered with snow. Yesterday the sky at night was that deep blue colour same as just broken glacier ice has. A temperature of minus 5. The sky tonight is grey and it is snowing again. We saw 8 fat beers still eating of the dead whale we saw 5 weeks ago though on an other spot. We also saw on the previous trip a lot beers in the east and the south, but they were very thin and a few not far from starvation. The sea up here in the north is now to rough to go to Moffen Island, we chose the shelter of Raudfjord and will try again tomorrow for a landing on that Island that is forbidden to visit during the season.
The geese we see are flying south; we stay here a little longer.
