And There Was Great Rejoicing...

'Cause the boats started running today!!!

Only three trips per day to start, no Sunday service and it's the slooooow boat, but still our horizons have just suddenly expanded.

If you look closely, you can see how thick some of the flow ice is; what you can't see is just how much flow ice there is out in the Straits and how fast it's moving - it changes hour to hour.

Just the first sign that "the season" is on it's way!


  1. thanks for leaving your blog link!
    Your beadwork is so neat! I've always thought it was cool how some of you people have the amazing patience to make beautiful, intricate things of tiny beads!

  2. whoo hooo. Does this mean the snow mobiles get put up for the spring? Glad you made it back home safely.

  3. Well, ours were put away a couple weeks ago, but a few of the diehards are still holding out. Have to ask - how in the world did you happen to find my blog?

  4. I was googling images and one of yours came up off the blog. Very cool. Have a great spring!
