We were going to land for a
morning excursion pretty shortly and while we enjoyed seeing
this Polar Bear moving across Baffin Island in the distance it
worried our guides in case it decided to come and eat a
passenger or at least savagely rip a limb or two off which
wouldn't look good in the publicity material "(almost) All
passengers return alive!".
We went a bit further up the
coast and they were decidedly twitchy.
