New Nunavut Blogs

Just because I'm travelling around southern Canada for a month doesn't mean I'm not keeping up with all the blogs. There are a couple of new blogs that are worth checking out.

The first one is Pangnirtung Bound. Nice to see another blogger heading to Pangnirtung.

The second is Shelter - The Journey to Nunavut .... They, like us, have cats. Must be good folks if they have cats. They currently have three videos that are very entertaining.

Yet another new Nunavut blog! Go see The Arctic Post . They are from Chesterfield Inlet. We've lost a few blogger's this year but seem to be more than recovering those losses. (Thanks Indigo)

Take a minute and pop over to their blogs and say hi.

PS: Hope to have some photos this week once I find a USB cord for the camera.

I've arrived in Halifax.

I'm only here overnight and will be meeting our daughter tomorrow morning at the airport and then a quick drive to the train station for the trip to Moncton.

I won't have any photos from my Rankin Inlet trip or the New Brunswick stay until I find a new USB cord for the camera. I'm guessing one won't be found until I'm back in Ottawa.

More later

Travelling Man

Blog posting over the next 1 1/2 months will be very sporadic because I will be travelling. I'm attending meetings in Rankin and Iqaluit and I'm going to take a month off to spend with family and friends.

I'm going to try to blog during my travels but I'm missing the USB cord for my camera and won't be able to post any photos until I get a new one. You'll have to wait and see how it goes.

Summer Flowers VI

Since Nunavut has been the summer capital of Canada this year, here is a bright yellow flower for the rest of Canada to remember what the sun looks like.
Off course yesterday the weather was crappy and the fog has rolled in to stay for a bit. Summer over.

Spotted a couple of tents while exploring. Pretty spot.
