When thinking of traditional Inuit dwellings, the iglu very often comes to most people's minds. Less well known is the qammaq such as the one which sits along the shoreline here. These were constructed with a rock base and roofed with sealskins supported by a whalebone frame.
I'm not certain when this one was built though it had served as a community museum at one point before I arrived here. This no doubt explains the anachronistic tile roof and chimney.
Out in the bay (way out in the bay here) is the something new - yet another coast guard ship which has dropped anchor for a short visit in recent days. As noted by Clare, I believe it is the CCGS Henry Larson.
