26th October 1914
We have left Buenos Aires.The cheer and roar of the crowds has imprinted a memory in my mind that shall last forever-and there will be many more from our adventure when I, Ernest Shackleton shall conquer Antarctica (or at least hope to ). As the Endurance speeds onward,dogs bark and Captain Wild is yelling orders. Frank Hurley has shimmed up the rigging to get photos- although there isn’t much but sun and sea.When we set out the weather was amazing but its worsening as dark clouds cover the sky like a rug over a floor. Charles Green (the ship’s cook) is preparing a wonderful dinner while Thomas- Ordee- Leeis petting Sue the dog. The ship is creaking and groaning and the steam means I can’t see anything(although Ican smell dog poo) as we sail towards our destiiny
Theo and I have been researching and writing about icebergs. Please read our work by clicking on the link.
This is my first blog post and in it, I will try to explain about our topic Frozen. It is about the frozen North and South. During it we will be learning about Shackleton and animals ect. A list of the animals are
- Polar bears.
- Lots of kinds of whales.
- Snow bears,rabbits and foxes (There are more but Iv’e forgotten)
Now here I will say some facts:
- The Antarctic used to be land but it froze over.
- The people who live in the poles dislike being called eskimos they prefer inuits witch mean people of us.
- Somtimes humans find fossils in ice.
