I am so grateful for the time in Nunavut with my amazing partner! Life is good! Here are some photos of us with our Life is good t-shirt with the cold wind blowing and the sun dogs dancing in the background.
Ravens in the capital of Nunavut are huge- no gigantic! They are incredibly intelligent and are capable of mimicking almost any sound. I have heard screams, cell phones, car horns, recorders to name a few. We have seen them surround little dogs and I wouldn’t be surprised if the stories about them grabbing little puppies are true.
Then a party line of three…
It was a cold morning around -35 but felt much colder. Two days previous the temperatures were -48 with the wind chill so it should have felt downright balmy!
This hill overlooks the harbor and the city centre. Always so much fun to climb especially after coming back from a Baltic cruise wearing the proof of the delightful culinary experience! You can see the coast guard ship at the mouth of the harbor and I think you can finally see some of the height of the hill using the buildings in the background as a point of reference.
Solomon Awa a professional guide with many years of experience building igloos and teaching others how to survive off the land demonstrated how to build an igloo.
- In a few hours he was able to complete the igloo complete with benches inside.
