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.
