today after work ian and i went for a walk. it was a very special occasion because it was very windy so there were no bugs. what a treat! last week i was walking from our apartment to the car, breathing, as per usual protocol, and as a punishment for breathing i swallowed a mosquito. well, i sort of half swallowed it and coughed it up. since i'm a vegetarian, though, i really appreciated the momentary increase in protein. anyway, back to today's walk. it was bright and sunny after a rainy day. everything was looking shiny and green. 

here's the summer version of that hill i posted about in the winter. you know when it's wintertime and you're trying to climb a hill and you keep losing your footing over and over because it's really icy? that's the worst. 

here's some pretty water. 

here's ian being totally irresponsible. he was trying to get me to cross this creek but since i value my life, i didn't. we walked all the way up and down the creek for a good 20 minutes trying to find a safe place for me to cross but it didn't happen. not today, graveyard!

here's some arctic cotton. 

 here's part of a spine. i'm trying to think of a good way to explain to you how normal it is to see bones lying around everywhere. you know when you walk onto your lawn and see grass everywhere? it's like that here but instead of grass, it's bones.

  1. So beautiful and green. Iqaluit is lovely.

    I really enjoyed my visit, and I'm trying not to be offended that you didn't mention that I had been there. Waaaaah!
