The deception of Deception Island

Swimming in Antarctica? Doing the Polar Plunge? No problem! They said Deception Island had thermal springs.

The deception was that the Polar Plunge meant a plunge in the water beyond the thermal springs. Which was not thermal.

Witness my first courageous effort here.

In my post on The King and I, I discussed how a reviewer saw the movie Once is Not Enough, and asked: ‘Wanna bet?’

On Deception Island, once should have been enough, but I wanted to have photos as well as a video, and I was too wimpy to stay in long enough the first time.

Twice was definitely enough:
