Polar Bears... OH MY!
My husband announced this afternoon that there was a polar bear spotted roaming on the beach and then invited me to do a drive by on the way to my appointment. Usually we don't do mess with the bears but we were already heading out. By the time we got there we only caught a glimpse of someone on the ice... NO BEAR. Oh well... maybe next time. At least Andrew had a chance to see one in the wild before we fly out. After we drove by the beach I dropped him and Ellie off at his office so that I could make my dental appointment. On the way home from the dentist I snapped some more keepsake photos.
Today was really cold and windy. Can you see the snow blowing across the road? When I first came to Barrow I used to think that it looked erie. Now I think it's magical. This is the only place I've lived where it snowed more than a day in my adult life. I won't miss the shoveling but I sure will miss the glitter and crisp cleanness... not to mention the smell.
