Just arrived…

posted July 19, 2013

David and Mitzi have arrived in Sachs Harbour! It is about 13 degrees and the sun is bright, and there are BILLIONS of mosquitos, more than there have ever been before.
People are staying inside. Tomorrow they meet with Elders. They expect the Bernard Explorer on Saturday. The ice looks clear along the mainland, though there is still some in the Passage.
They flew in under cloud but just as they passed over Baillee Island the clouds opened and they had a good glimpse.
They hope to blog every few days – it depends where they are. Through their inReach device we can at least track them daily, and they can send a simple, “everything is fine” message. Whenever they can they will send more.
