11th to 14th March 1834

E. Falkland Islands
The ship was moved to near the Town. The Adventure arrived, after an exceedingly prosperous voyage. They killed so many wild bulls, geese &c &c & caught so many fish, that they have not tasted salt meat; this with fine weather is the beau ideal of a sailors cruise. I went on shore, intending to start on a riding excursion round the island, but the weather was so bad I deferred it.
