Last night we started making our way north out of the White Sea. During the course of the morning we had been cruising along the Kanin Peninsula. In the early afternoon hours we found a tiny cove at the northern end of the peninsula, giving us some protections from the pretty fierce winds. Very few people have ever visited this lovely place. Steve MacLean, one of our Naturalists and Historians, tucked me into his pocket and took me ashore today. I was glad that I was in the pocket and out of the wind. We left the beach walking inland and found a pretty little valley! Way up in the north here there are no trees, only very low bushes of dwarf birch and willow. The ground was covered with all kinds of pretty flowers and berries. Here are a few of my favorites.

Forget me not

What a beautiful place!
