Greenland, Kayaking, Ilulisaat

We watched this Inuk doing all sorts of feats with his kayak.  Remember that we are above the Arctic circle and the water is about 0ºC!  He did a variety of rolls, and then in the last picture he is paddling while upside down - a sneaky maneuver to get past a polar bear.  Yikes.

Two more shots of Sisimiut.  

In our "wet suits" coming into the harbour at Ilulisaat.  It was foggy and the bay was filled with ice.

There was a lovely boardwalk to take us to a fjord to see the ice bergs that had calved off the glacier.  It was across rough tundra terrain and as we came around a corner we could see the tops of the bergs in the mist - a very magnificent sight.
