It’s been a bit of a crazy week and I have been meaning to blog about my amazing Sunday–but dealing with my “personal effects” shipment that arrived on Monday from Winnipeg–and the huge mess it was… put blogging to the back burner for the week! I am still sorting stuff out–but I’m ok. I’m not really wanting to talk about it publicly here–if you want to know more details just send me an email!
Last Sunday I had a fantastic evening…I was invited by a friend to join her on a bit of an adventure. I travelled across the fiord by boat and then hiked up to the base of the rocks. We were picking Qungulik. The english equivalent is mountain sorrel. I made it to the TOP and back down—walking down was harder than walking up!
This spot is known as “seagull mountain”…because there are TONS of seagulls at the top of the rock! We were going to hike to where the dark green is just at the base of the rock face…
It was fun to see Pang from on the other side of the fiord…it was the first time I was over here… (and YES, Jen–those SPOTS are still there no matter WHAT I do..can’t get rid of them… I think you WILL have to come up HERE to help me get rid of them! so just ignore them in the next few photos!)
Just before we headed down to the bottom of the hill and back to the boat–we stopped to take a ‘group’ shot… it was a bit hard to figure out–think about a slant of a hill–setting up my camera with the timer… and balancing it on a backpack–then rushing down to the group–without tripping! for the most part it worked pretty darn good! 🙂
I’m so glad I had such an awesome Sunday…looking back, it made the craziness of Monday a bit more bearable. I think one of the things I’ve learned the most from living up here is you have to take the GOOD with the BAD and continue on. Things never go as you expect them to go, and you just have to roll with it. You just deal with what you have to deal with, and move on. Doing that might take a few phone calls to loved ones in the south, and I’m thankful for my mum who spent most of Monday night on and off the phone with me. So here’s to more amazing Sundays…
