Today was my favourite day out of the whole trip. We went to cape marry for a tour about the prince of whales fort and everything that happened there. We were all outside for about 45 minutes and freezing by the end of the tour. The second thing on our agenda for the day was Jill’s cabin. At Jill’s cabin we were made an amazing lunch of arctic char chowder, wild rice and bannock. During lunch we talked about our presentation from Caroline and what we took with us from her talk. After lunch Scott and I made a fire outside and people slowly started coming outside to enjoy the fire and get rides of the ATVs. The rest of the afternoon was spent either on the ATVs, sewing out mittens, or out by the fire. We sadly had to say goodbye to Jill, the Jr Rangers and Churchill as we boarded the train. Pizza was picked up from Gypsies for the train. The train ride was included in many highlights of the trip for people due to the northern lights. We were able to go un into the dome and watch the northern lights until late at night. It was a spectacular way to say goodbye to Churchill.
