from Beaufort to Baffin

28 August 2009 no comment

Many folks know (or can intuit) that I find things related to sailing completely HAWESOME.  And despite one’s thoughts on climate change, the concept of sailing the Northwest Passage is appealing.  There are few real adventures one can go on anymore, and this is definitely one of them – especially since the discoverers of this legendary waterway died doing so.  Reading this article at CNN struck a chord with me; how does this land – and the possibility of open water – affect those who live there?

And, naturally, music popped into me head.  Even though scenes in the video are from the show Due South (great show), the song is by Stan Rodgers, a fave of mine.
