We anchored in Nannuk Harbor on Baffin Island. Nannuk means polar bear in Inuktitut, so we expected we would see some. Not sure if the polar bears will be visible in this picture after it is reduced for transmission by satellite phone, but there are two of them in the picture, on the right side of the river, where the river first turns around a rocky point.
Baffin Island is well north of the treeline, so there is rock visible everywhere, with small amounts of vegetation, mostly mosses, but also some blueberries. It was too cold for mosquitoes, which was nice for us, though there were some other flying, biting insects to remind us that it was still summer.
