Ice and More Ice

Today our ship’s objective was to find ice… lots of ice. Next was to find Polar Bears. We did both… tho’ the Polar Bears we saw were mostly swimming between ice floes and my camera was not able to capture them… I know that today was just the first of many Polar Bear sightings to come! It’s an interesting experience to spend a good part of the day just watching out the window with no other plan for the time being than to have the opportunity to see beautiful creatures in their own environment. The ship is very respectful of the animals that are sighted and never chases or otherwise pursues them… but the ship will change direction in a heartbeat to see something that has been sighted. There are so many knowledgeable naturalists and enthusiastic observers on board… we are in very interesting company!
