Well, it’s been over 12 years since I was last moored next to a glacier. And that was in Nagtivit bay on East Greenland. Practically on the other side of the planet. And now we’re here. Quite a bit of water under the keel since then, as they say… On Greenland the weather was nicer, though. Here it’s 2° C and raining most of the time… For those of you who have been looking at our environmental sampling and wondering why the water is not salt anymore, I can tell you that there is a lot of rainwater and melting snow/ice flowing into this narrow bay. The water has almost no salt taste, but it’s very murky and muddy.
