Ice Liberty

Once in a while we can leave the ship to the ice. "Lots of fun was had by all."

Incoming Snowball! Notice the "brow" leading down from the ship. Very steep.

Soccer, Football, swimming, etc. A regular ol' day in the park. Note the orange flags marking a big crack. The guy in the upper right standing on the crack is me. Don't worry, the ice was at least 2 meters thick.

June 1: Ice Libo day, in honor of Memorial Day. Some time to get off the ship, play in the snow, grab a few cold beverages, smoke stogies, and enjoy the isolation.

Polar Bear Watch. Here I am on the edge of a remote ice floe, well above the Arctic Circle. The polar bear was about a KM away. He had just eaten and was asleep. Sorry Michelle, no rug this time!
