On to the glacier

... town. The engine took 10 years to acquire! Apparently paperwork was 'difficult' and it had to come from London. When it was installed in the boat, it was too heavy and the bow had to be weighted down with rock ballast so it would sail on an even keel!! Cracking piece of marine design! Following this, we were all herded into 4x4s to go to see another section of the glacier from the land. We were told to sit 5 per side, although there were only seatbelts for 4. The ...

... 520 feet tall, 300 feet of which lies beneath the milky green waters of Lago Argentina ( the largest freshwater lake in Argentina). Its face is a little over 2 miles across! They say it is advancing at the distance of 2 meters a day ( a little more than six feet), which is relatively slow when compared to nearby Viedma Glacier which is advancing at the rate of 15 meters a day.
