Happy Shackleton Rescue Day

I've been reading the book by Sir Ernest Shackleton, "South," about his expedition to Antarctica back in 1914 and the rescue of his men in 1916. There's a lot of details.

The thing to mention today is that the famous rescue was made on August 30, today!

One of the men wrote, "We intend to keep August 30th as a festival for the rest of our lives."

Since they've all passed on by now, happy festival day as the rest of us celebrate it!
