Photo Blogging Challenge – Liquid (October 2019)

So many possibilities for this (and every) month's theme! We all need liquid to live. We also need to be liquid (i.e. flush with cash) to pay our bills! Liquid is also a phase of matter, where particles are free to flow. I got creative exploring various characteristics of matter in the liquid state, things like density, polarity and refraction. This post showcases some of the results.

Zodiac Excursion – Button Islands

What a spot for the last Zodiac excursion on One Ocean's Labrador and Torngat Mountains expedition cruise: the Button Islands are located near an upwelling of ocean currents laden with nutrients, which make these barren, low islands the Arctic equivalent of an African watering hole. A frigid Zodiac safari in the Button Islands is likely to encounter sea birds, marine mammals and polar bears.

Torngat Mountains National Park

After an emotional and educational excursion to Hebron, it was back to nature for two days in Torngat Mountains National Park - the only National Park in Labrador. Each year, approximately 500 visitors come by boat, charter plane or helicopter, to visit this remarkable "place of spirits". In addition to Zodiac excursions in Saglek and Nachvak fjords, we had the opportunity to take a short, guided hike at the head of the north arm of Saglek fjord. The people, scenery, geology and wildlife were some of the highlights of the cruise.
