Johnny and Shaun...off to hockey, Repulse Bay

The Cirque d' Arctic


Yeah, so Shaun was keen to go up to Repulse Bay when he heard they were short a nurse. It's only for a week, and he can now say he has been within the Arctic Circle. On his first day he saw 3 polar bears!!!

Here's an email he sent yesterday:

Yeap, up here in the Artic Circle, -45 w the wind shield factored, snow limiting visibility.....I am going for a walk :)

The Co-op is the closest store in Repulse Bay, with a population of 900 people. The cool stat is there are three "machines" (snow mobiles) to every truck (no cars). I will attempt a picture, when the storm passes to illustrate the neat factor.

Just thought I would pass on a quick up date :)

Shaun

p.s- Liz is alive and loving Rankin Inlet, we are appart for 7 days then I will be returning to Rankin :)
