Disko Bay…Disco Babies!!

Leg 1 down, Nuuk to Upernavik. Since arriving in Greenland a couple of weeks ago we’ve hopped our way north, stopping in the main settlements and occasional isolated anchorage or fishing village. Our objectives for the season have a serious side; supporting resource management research here in Greenland, and later, when we’re back in Canada, Bird surveys on Bylot Island followed by an Inuit youth film project. But here’s a collection of photo’s showing the not-so-serious side of life aboard Arctic Tern!
