Upon waking this morning the sound of the howling wind outside made me think that Dundee might have blown away overnight. Luckily the weather wasn’t quite as bad as it sounded, so a trip into town could be managed. When the rain came down there was thankfully a little coffee shop to hide in (@henryscoffee – follow them on Twitter and try their hot white chocolate). The main attraction of the day though was seeing the fantastic Discovery, spending its retirement in a purpose built dock. It’s incredible to look up at the boat then see pictures of it in the thick Antarctic ice and think about it being the very same one. Even on a damp day like today, you can’t help but be impressed.
