2nd January 2002
The snow fell through the night. My cabin felt like the refrigerated cargo holds. I slept with my head under the blankets as it was so cold that I got an ice cream headache when I put my head out! From the bridge I could see that the roof of my cabin was covered in thick ice and snow, in fact the whole ship had turned white overnight with the exception of the trawl deck, which was swept clear by the net.
I’m bored and restless today, the most exciting thing that has happened is we saw a large ship with “Wallenius Line” written on it, its name was Fidelio and was carrying cars.
