Philpot Island

This morning we were given the option of either signing up for a hike on Philpot Island or an hour-long zodiac expedition exploring the shores and coves of the island.  Then before an hour went by the next announcement let us know that there would be no landings on Philpot Island because a Polar Bear had been spotted right next to the beach we would’ve landed on… yet another change of plans!  So, most everyone took the opportunity to go out on the zodiacs and it was great!  … we got close to come big icebergs, saw walrus on the rocks and twice visited that sleepy Polar Bear that kept us off shore… ha, ha!  Unfortunately the sleeping polar bear and sunning walrus were too far away for my iPhone camera but I did hear there will be a photo share site set up soon so that I’ll be able to nab some better pics of the critters we’re seeing to share.
