Aug 14, 2018 NWP day 11 Pond inlet bound

We are hoping to pick up the broken part for the auto pilot from First Air this afternoon, already a day late and now the plane is late. We have thoroughly been back and forth and back again, we know this town pretty well by now. The dust, the zipping ATVs, barreling trucks add to the fun.

A Russian cruise ship with 80 passengers has come and unloaded some of them in large expedition zodiacs so the airport is crazy.

Good thing we spent over three hours walking on the beach this morning. The flowers were gorgeous and we spotted a narwhal carcass missing head and tusk.

Eclipse sound and Pond inlet are stunning when the sun comes out on the glaciers on Bylot island.

The dogs are all chained here and they sleep to pass the time. They do great us as we walk past with a cheerful tail wag.

And finally since you are all wondering about our dinner tonight, it’s arctic cod fished by Fred in Greenland.
