BLOG, DAY 4
We are in very rough seas. 5 meter waves; people taking Dramamine and looking very greay…. Crossing the Davis Strait/ yep we do NOT HAVE, “fair winds and following seas”! Reminiscent of the infamous Drake Passage during Antarctic expeditions!
A little more about how small the world is! (apologies that some of this is from the last blog post, just more information!
A person on board knows Glen Wolgemth (I went to high school with Glen) in Deep River. Lynda Triviers would be interested.
Also Rick Irvin, on board, was told by one of Linda’s friends Lorna Doubt) from Rankin Inlet that I would be on board.
Atout Shouldice from Rankin Inlet is on board as a zodiac driver, and an Inuit historian; wondered if Linda knew him. He is a supervisor for watersystems across the Kivilik Region.
I am honoured that there is a couple on board who remember me from the Antarctic South Georgia/Falkland Island trip 2006, in this very same ship, the Akademik IOFFE!
I must run, there is a staff meeting to attend and passengers to care for.
