July 26 in Iqaluit — the Apex Trail

Nili was working again today, so the kids and I walked in to Iqaluit from where we’re staying in Apex to satisfy a craving for Chinese food for lunch. The Apex Trail follows the scenic coastline between Apex and Iqaluit and took us about an hour and a half to walk. It’s beautiful, especially on a day like today when it’s warm enough to go without a jacket and you’re walking in to the breeze to keep the bugs away.

Oh, and when we were in the North Mart (the grocery store) at the end of the day, Art ran over Noam on an ATV. There’s a photo of that too.



July 22 in Iqaluit — kites and swimming

I’m not proud, or crazy, but I did bag another ocean by swimming in the Arctic Ocean in Iqaluit! The boys came in a short way… I should probably be proud of them for being smart enough not to go in all the way!

It was about 20 degrees here and sunny, and there was a breeze keeping the bugs away, so earlier in the day we flew a kite on the beach. In one of these pictures, you can see the Coast Guard ship off shore (I hope they didn’t take offence with our US flag kite!).
