Day 10 continued….

Well, spent a few hours this afternoon on the rope border and I have a few several more hours to do on it too! I particularly wanted the rope in because when watching Ponting’s film of the expedition there were ropes everywhere: ropes lifting ponies off the ship in pully systems, ropes on the dogs pulling the sledges and also on the horses pulling their loads too, plus ropes putting the tents up and  lots of ropes on the Terra Nova holding things down and also all the rigging. Plus I liked the symbolism of rope: it’s strength and endurance.

Sorry the picture is a bit blurry.

Day 10. 4 hours on the rope!
