Bylot Island Overlooking Navy Board Inlet and Baffin Island
Starting off from a place called Low Point on Bylot Island. Bylot Island on the map looks like it should be part of Baffin Island except someone drew in sea on two sides and so it looks like the corner bit that got knocked off (as this is the Arctic, it goes without saying that it's a big bit).
We walked up the hill to be greeted with a magnificent view on a beautiful clear day, warm enough for comfort in the sun but without being too hot. I never really got used to my fellow travellers bright red attire though (hired from the ship) it always looked a bit violent on the eye in a landscape of much more muted colours.
