A day ashore on Bear Island

Swinging gently at anchor watching the ice bergs go by whilst we sip drinks cooled by them.

Great day with varied activities. First up we put together the kayak and went off on its maiden paddle around a couple of ice bergs. Then came a spot of drone flying giving a very different photographic perspective on the place. After lunch a walk ashore to a rocky summit strewn with exquisite lichens, mosses and alpine flowering plants. Then back to the boat for a gourmet Thai red curry cooked up by Rod. Shame his fishing ventures haven't been so successful!
