Uummannaq, Greenland (Day 9)

This morning, we landed for a short visit to an ancient cemetery at Qilakitoq. Then, back at the ship, we had our polar dip, but it wasn’t too cold… about 5ᵒC. Spent the afternoon in the town of Uummannaq, Greenland… Continue Reading →

Karrat Fiord, Greenland (Day 8)

We lost another hour overnight, so now we’re in Greenland time. We entered Karrat Fjord, Greenland and the icebergs were spectacular. Other than birds, we haven’t seen much wildlife on this trip. Only one polar bear at a distance. I… Continue Reading →

Day 6 and Day 7 on the Ocean Endeavor

Am I a birdwatcher?

Chantal, pinch me! Am I dreaming that we’re cycling in Europe? Bike lanes and separated bike-ways everywhere. Motorists giving us lots of room, smiling and waving, instead of dirty looks and fingers. Wow, where are we? Not in Europe, in… Continue Reading →

Will make photos for food

I’ve been asked if I try to sell my photos, and I always answer “No, I do photography and blogging for fun only’”. It’s like most hobbies, in my case guitar, electronic circuit design, then computer programming, starts out fun,… Continue Reading →
