Buying our first ATV (quad)

  Arriving in Iqaluit back in August, we knew we would set aside a small fund for an ATV. It wasn't going to be a new one, we took time and looked into a used quad that was up for sale at a reasonable price. Lucky for us, with a bit of bargaining, we were able to find one that fit our budget. 

Fast forward to now, our quad has been tuned by a mechanic and is doing an awesome job getting us from A to B. It's been a great way to see the beauty of the outskirts of Iqaluit!

My new Scarf

   Among my mail waiting at the post office yesterday was my new gorgeous scarf*. When it came time for Mojo's morning walk, I chucked it on and headed out the door. Extremely soft to the touch and light weight, I absolutely love it. Also, it is synthetic silk which I appreciate. The quality seems to be exceptional which you can probably see through the work of my fantastic lens.

I asked Mojo what he thought, however his eyes seemed to be fixated elsewhere. haha.

Adore him

The past few days have been full of exciting emotions. Yes, I will be adopting Mojo from the animal shelter here in Iqaluit. He is currently under my foster care! I already love him. Stay tuned for many more posts featuring Mojo!

Puppy in Iqaluit

  This past weekend we were invited to an amazing Thanksgiving feast here in Iqaluit. You see Kyle looking spiffy in his bow tie(which he put on because he thought it would be a source of entertainment).  Axel, an exhausted puppy in these photographs, was the star of the evening. He's too adorable to be true.

On an exciting note, it is almost confirmed that we will be adopting Mojo. He is just the sweetest, I cannot wait to have him in our home.

October in Iqaluit

Happy Thanksgiving to all Canadians.

This afternoon Kyle and I took it upon ourselves to bundle up once more and head out into the tundra. It's been really quite nice going on our walks when we find we both have some time off.

Ever since the first snow fall, there have been a few trickling trails of a bit more snow but nothing too remarkable. The temperature drop has been steady and easy to adjust to.

Frankly, the one thing I would like to mention in this post is how absolutely gorgeous it is here. I am so happy we made the move. I hope continual photographs will do this city some justice.

Pitt bull left behind

  I know I've created a few posts on Mojo now (here and here). I thought it might be appropriate to bring up how he ended up under the foster care of our friend. Basically, the family he knew was not able to take him down south because there was a Pitt bull ban where they were settling. There has been so much commotion in Montreal concerning their Pitt bull ban the past few weeks, I can only sympathise. Mojo is the sweetest, most gentle dog. It's such a shame, I'm sure he is confused as to why he had to be left behind.

Iqaluit Bonfires

   Bonfires seem a frequent occurrence up here in Iqaluit. For the summer at least. This may have been the last bonfire for 2016 for me. It was a great way to mingle and enjoy the company of folks that all have their own northern stories to share.

I always find fire photographs enticing.

It's snowing in Iqaluit



   Our first semi-real snow fall in Iqaluit today! Kyle and I thought it would be nice to take Mojo along with us on our walk this afternoon (he is being fostered by one of our friends). Once we got out into the tundra, we let him off his leash and boy was Mojo ecstatic!

   I mentioned in a previous post here, that I would continue to update my review of my Hoodlamb's Ladies Nordic Parka as the days got colder. It definitely kept me warm today and the faux fur trim does a great job keeping the wind from burning my face. Reviews will continue as I believe this month will really come down with snow.

   Very excited to keep the photographs coming!
