Mother's Day

Mother's Day in Cape Dorset. Happy Mother's Day to all those mothers out there!!  So far the day is great with getting to sleep in and a water delivery.  The biggest news is that Rick and Maureen are still here.  On Friday they tried to leave yet again.  We tried to call a cab but as often happens no one even answered.  So Plan B we loaded everything into the Qamatiq.  By everything I also mean Lily and Myself.  She loves riding in the sled and laughed the whole way.  This time we made it all the way to the airport and were checked in and everything.  Waiting for the plane to arrive we heard it fly overhead.  The wind and snow were picking up and it circled to try again.  We saw it fly right over the airport and then fly away.  The anouncement came that it was returning to Iqaluit.  So everyone is here until Monday.  On the up side we now get to spend Mother's Day with another mother!  The weather looks good for Monday but we will just have to wait and see what happens...

  1. Wow, a water shortage and planes that appear only to leave without you- your parents / in-laws are sure getting an authentic arctic experience!
