By and On the Bay - here in Iqaluit
This is a brilliant day, by all accounts much milder than last week. But walking around town and onto the ice on the bay I still needed goggles and face/neck protection. I have even been putting on the sunscreen. I dropped by the craft fair held at the Parish Hall and met a number of folks who made jewelry, gloves, hats and met a photographer who took some great shots all around Baffin Island. Outside the skidoos were flying - this was a great day for touring kids and adults around the bay. The pack ice seems to change subtly, though the bay is frozen solid for miles. I am hopeful to get out before I leave to see where the edge of the ice meets the open water; but this may not happen for awhile.
