Today began with the wonderful smells of french toast coming from the kitchen. Breakfast was wonderful with homemade peach syrup and sausage. Shortly after we began packing lunches for the day as we planed to take a hike to the coast and also to retrieve one of the trail cams that we put out with Jim a few days earlier. The hike was a 13 km round trip. On the hike we enjoyed walking through the tide pools on the coast of Hudson Bay and looking for fossils. On the way back we spotted some very nice caribou running through the willows. They all had very nice racks of antlers on them. Dinner was fantastic, as the wind and the rain picked up we headed to the bunk house for a dance party. Filled with strobing head lamps, and very very original dance moves. As the wind picked up to 70 km/h I hunkered down in the tent for the night as the wind and the rain blew the tent around. Today was the last full day at Nester 1. Over the past days we have spent here we have experience so many unforgettable events. These events will for ever stay with myself and have changed my views in many ways.
