“Not here, the white North has thy bones; and thou,
Heroic Sailor-Soul
Art passing on thine happier voyage now,
Toward no Earthly Pole.”
Tennyson’s Epitaph on the Franklin Monument, Westminster Abbey

A Big Day Yesterday...: Prince Leopold Island, Sailing through Sea Ice and
Beechey Island
We had a spectacular day 8, toasting “a wee dram of Scotch” at the Beechey
Island, Franklin’s men’s gravesites, …. a spectacular sunset over the snowy
landscape.
Day 9 was spent trudging through ice in the path of  the Henry Larson ICE
BREAKER.  Watching the helicopter take off and land on that ship, was indeed
reassuring, and an amazing sight.

TOMORROW, we travel through the Bellot Strait, behind the Henry Larson!
Excitement looms...
