It's a bit of a scenery to mingle with the little crowd of Happy Valley Goose Bay to celebrate the 150th Canada Day. The brand new Splash Pad and Fireworks are very popular.
28 days to ski around Bylot Island: David Reid (Scots and Canadian, expedition leader), Ingrid Ortlieb (German, living in Spain), Martin Garcia (Basque Spanish and Canadian), and myself (scientist of the expedition), have travelled nearly 500 km in autonomy, on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Canada, with the help and protection of four dogs, sometimes on sea ice very rough and with many polar bears!
On May 9, we returned to our point of departure, Pond Inlet, an Inuit village north of Baffin Island in Nunavut, in the Canadian Arctic.
For the 150th anniversary of Canada, Eric is back on the sea ice in Nunavut! With David Reid, Ingrid Ortlieb and Martin Garcia, they are four during one month to ski around Bylot Island, north of Baffin Island, in Canada's far north. Departure from Pond Inlet on April 12!
Thanks a lot to Topstar for tailor-made diving suits for Aurore and Leonie, delighted to test them in Brittany before going for colder waters...
