The 2 dog houses for Jin and Frost are built and set up on the deck of Vagabond for now. Sea ice is not yet thick enough in the little bay we chose for wintering. Depending on wind, the bay is either filling up with small icebergs and brash from the glacier, either turning to free water. It was impossible today to go to shore (ice too thin) but we could watch a polar bear sleeping in a snowdrift, less than 100 metres from the boat. 2 other polar bears came by, without showing any interest to the amazing red boat... Great landscapes with this cold and dry weather. It was a pleasure to share our impressions this morning by phone with the public of the Adventure Film Festival in Dijon, where the film about our North-West Passage expedition was shown. A year ago, we were just finishing our circumpolar navigation! Eric
