About 4- a.m. more of the ice sticking to R- hull loosened + came up.
A decent morning, then cloudy, then rain + finally a driving N.W. snow squall.
Strolled up to the R- cairn. This is rather a classic locality now. From the cairn can be seen the Alert's cairn, Petersen's grave, + the Marvin memorial.
One black guillemot shot last night abreast of the ship + six today + this evening.
