The flight in was amazing.
We flew over water that was a gorgeous blue, speckled with white, until we could see the floe edge, the place where the ice is solid, and people can go hunt or fish.

We are staying in a 3 bedroom place up on the hill.
The view out over the town and bay is amazing.
Tonight, there was a picnic: Eloise and Rob bought a seal (yes, a whole seal) and Maata and her boys cooked a seal stew for us out on the tundra.
The colours are gorgeous. I was SO mad that I forgot to take my camera out with me, but Rob took a few photos that I will try to upload.
So… tonight I ate seal stew and seal broth.
The Inuit students said (and I had already heard) that seal will heat your blood.
Oddly enough, 3 hours later, as I am getting ready to go to bed, I really AM feeling hotter!
Lori Idlout did tell me to be sure to drink lots of water tonight. I will!
