A Beautiful Weekend
Our walk included company from a friend and sightings of siksiks, 2 pairs of sandhill cranes and a flock of white-fronted geese (I had to look up nearly every kind of goose found in Nunavut on Wikipedia to figure that out). They were quite handsome, but beyond the range of my camera to shoot.
I'm ramping up to get ready for our Kivalliq Regional Science Camp this week. Its one of the excellent programs that KSEC (Kivalliq Science Educators Community) runs. It brings kids together to learn in the outdoors and in fact is pretty much the only camping I've done since moving here, other than a handful of days in Jasper 3 years ago. I'm sure its going to be a tonne of fun and that I'm going to be exhausted, but happy when it is over.
Hoping for beautiful weather and not too many bugs.
Otherwise, we are settling into our new place well and have lots to look forward to in the coming year - not the least of which is euchre with friends and the occasional brunch. I hope to get my real camera out during science camp and get some really nice pictures. I've been mostly using my little camera lately because it is light to carry.
Oh! Picture number 2 is proof of our shiny new street signs taken at the corner of 1st Avenue and Cul de Sac.
