Yesterday’s bright and sunny weather, brilliant white icebergs, and the polychrome buildings of Ilulissat – such vivid visual memories – faded into the expected monochromatic palette of bluish-greys as we sailed out of sight of land, across the Davis Strait towards Baffin Island. We are in the midst and mist of a comfortable sea passage towards new Arctic lands in Nunavut, Canada. Foggy conditions have limited our views of this North Atlantic wilderness, allowing a slower-paced day for rest and reflection on our journey so far.
