Afternoon Update

July 27th, 2008 by Walt "The Skipper" Jones

We are on the way to Iqaluit and we are running into bands of 90% ice. So far we have found leads through each band. The Coast Guard says that so far one small boat has left Iqaluit (3 days ago) and that no boat has come in without ice breaker support. They think we can make it if we are careful. We will be, though we won’t arrive until tomorrow.

We tried to anchor on the south shore of Frobisher Bay but the bottom was slick rock and was of no avail. The scenery was a 10! It was a combination of Yosemite, the Grand Tetons, and Glacier Bay all in one package. Picture a fiord with El Capitan at the entrance, a large glacier at the head with jagged peaks with snow patches in between.

    I do all the video at my church so I am always thinking in terms of, “How would that look as a background?” (sometimes the answer is quite amusing) and looking at your pictures has me picturing, “When I in awesome wonder consider all the works Thy hands hath made, I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder, Thy pow’r throughout the universe displayed: Then sings my soul, My Saviour God to me, How Great Thou art!” in front of them. He is truly an amazing artist!
