It doesn’t get prettier than this in June in the Arctic.
After the shore ice broke up and moved out, the current brought remnants of the polar pack into shore… and what beautiful ice it was!
I walked down to the beach and spent hours just sitting and listening. I really should have stayed home cleaning, but it was too beautiful out to ignore. It was amazingly silent. I could hear the ice creaking and groaning and at one point heard the wings of a bird that flew over me. It was a magnificent evening.
Back to life in the Arctic. I find sea ice fascinating. I went for a walk this week to see how it was coming along. I found the water covered, but it was still just sheets of pancakes slowly moving by. I sat there listening to the sound of the ice as it moved with the current.
