Monday 4th February

Morning broke fine and about 9.30 am the Skipper arrived and we went on board the Madge taking our stores with us. Stayed on board all day – stowed things and pottered about generally. Went ashore on Rat Island where First Mate wounded himself badly by treading on a rusty nail. Got tea about 6 pm and had a smoke. The weather was again beginning to look very bad, so decided there was not much virtue in camping on board when we had a good steady bed ashore.
