Today was brilliantly sunny but the wind chill brought the temperature down to -49 degrees - I was wondering why my jacket was starting to get stiff and crackly. I took a brief break indoors to view the new print exhibit at the museum - then hiked around the breakwater on Frobisher Bay. Found a small independent coffee shop near that end of the beach, fresh coffee and a chance to defrost my goggles.
As I walked around Iqaluit I frequently heard screams and calls, every once in a while I am thrown off until I realize the source - ravens. They must be sturdiest birds around. They perch in the coldest temperatures and are always flying about town.
