The galley offers an impressive selection of food. Although fresh greens are lacking, certain foods like yogurt and bread are made here at the station. Fresh yogurt every morning for breakfast, how about that?! Coffee & tea, cookies, pizza, cereal, and oatmeal are available all hours of the day. Refrigerators stocked with pre-made lunches, entrees, and desserts – which vary daily and may range from fish tacos to meatloaf, cheesecake to butterscotch haystacks – provide options for those who desire extra snacks for a hike, know they will be on an eight hour flight over the Ross Ice Shelf (!), or simply overslept.
Weather here has been unkind thus far, prohibiting any access to our tent on the airfield and the installation of the icepod.
