On the Belgica, in the drift-ice to the west of Graham Land, we always had rough, unpleasant weather.
It is remarkable that there should be so many foxes on this drift-ice so far from land.
It seems as if everything conspired to delay us, and that we shall never get away from this drift-ice.
Fog and rain and drift-ice were to be met on the grounds of Candlestick Cove.
At first a détour towards the west was necessary to get round a field of drift-ice.
The Antarctic or Arctic pack usually has a girdle or fringe of drift-ice.
We had an open channel before us; but we could see the edge of the drift-ice out at sea.
This seemed a needless precaution, for the pieces of drift-ice were hardly large enough to have crushed a skiff.
I further mentioned in the same lecture that the mud found on this drift-ice seemed to point to a Siberian origin.
Pet and Jackman were the first north-east explorers who ventured themselves in earnest amongst the drift-ice.
