First collect of ice from a nearby iceberg, to get good fresh water. We filled up a second container in the river that still flows under the snow, south of the village.
A lot of northern lights these days.
One night, an Arctic hare toured the boat and explore the surrounding area, probably disappointed to find nothing to put in his mouth!
Johnny is proud to be the first to come to Vagabond by truck this year! Two days later, Steevie came to pick up the girls to go to school, without warning! By kindness and for the pleasure of driving on the ice with his new car.
Burger and seal meat party at local Coffee Shop, re-opened a few days ago and which offers snacks, soft drinks, teas and coffees. The building rented as a base camp for Green Edge project is unrecognizable!
On the way home after school, we meet fresh polar bear tracks, not far from Vagabond. He played with a dead raven, probably the one that was hanging on the fence of Johnny's dog yard, on the nearby peninsula, to scare away other ravens. Time for us to have dogs, to warn us in case of a visit, especially in this polar night period. Mary and Sam give us Anuu, he adapts quickly to his new environment.
Two days work to disassemble the engine of one of Takuvik's snowmobile, which must be repaired before the start of GreenEdge 2016.
The crate delivered by boat in September, is finally brought to the boat: 400kg of grocery and dog food, ordered last June!
