Due North - Baker Lake Bound

View Larger Map

I guess this is my official announcement - give or take some paperwork - I'm headed to Baker Lake to teach highschool! Right now, I'm feeling somewhere between exuberant and overwhelmed by the insane list of things to do before I leave. I've included a link to Treena's Travels - a blog which not only does a great job of describing life in Baker Lake, but has first-rate photos too. Up until I found this blog, I was having a tough time finding pictures of town.

I know almost everyone that I talk with regularly knows this "news" and I've obviously been hinting for the last little while that something was up. I was hoping to find some perfect picture in my stash to go with the anouncement, but I've mostly used up the best of my photos from Repusle Bay - so I settled on a satellite photo.

I'm sure I'll have more to write about this in the near future - but for now, I should probably get some sleep so that I can function at work and manage to get the dog walked.

Good night,

Yay! I have a new blog to read!
Welcome to Nunavut (well.... not quite yet, but you're on your way). PS - you're going to have to change a few of your favorite things to :short dark winter days, nostrils freezing shut when you breathe in, and all the other wonders of the north. It really is an amazing world you're coming up to - enjoy every minute!

Hey Jennith!

Treena here from Baker Lake. :-) Glad you liked my blog and that the photos are helpful. Yeah, there's sure not much out there on our little spec on the map is there? So what will you be teaching? I'm the ASL interpreter at the elementary school. When do you arrive? Look forward to meeting you!

PS. Bring stamps! Our post office rarely has any in stock. ;-)
