What a trip! The belugas were out in the hundreds and the polar bears came out twice to say hello. Overall, an excellent trip. On the final day we had a torrential downpour and we spent the day in town. The museum is small but packed with interesting artifacts, including the narwhal horn which you'll see in the pics. There is definitely a religious presence in town as evidenced by the Anglican church, with the beautiful stained glass windows you'll see in the pics.
Just a regular woman out to see the world and experience as much of it as possible. My personal philosophy is to drink every last drop out of the cup of life. I travel cheap, easy, and with respect for locals. I have a big list of places to see and things to do. My current goal is to reach fifty countries and have memorable experiences there, by the time I turn 50.
I travel, its part of me, of who I am, and it makes me happy.

Churchill muralsAll around Churchill there are murals painted on both abandoned and in-use buildings. Given the costs associated with bringing in goods, most run-down buildings are just left to stand in the elements. These murals are a fantastic way to highlight local culture and history and add further interest to the area.
Defunct boat and port in backgroundThough remote, Churchill has had a significant place in Canadian, and world, history. The port in the background has been a huge asset in the past and continues to be used. We saw a large fueler being tugged in to replenish the community.
