With much effort this zodiac driver pulls out of the water a huge diamond-shaped chunk of "black ice". Recently calved from a glacier, this black ice is many-many thousands of years old and crystal clear as the millennia have compressed and forced out all air bubbles. This chunk of ice came aboard ship, chilled our evening cocktails, and helped celebrate in the New Year!
