Admittedly, its not the best of pictures as I was fighting a lot of glare from the sun this morning. Sometime yesterday afternoon a large patch of bay ice was scraped clear of snow, creating a giant tennis court (or possibly a volleyball court), complete with net. I only noticed after work the other day as I happened to glance out during a staff meeting. Think of it as the North's version of a crop circle, perhaps. Actually, the spot was being cleared off in preparation for next week's events at the conclusion of the Nunavut Quest dog team race that is just now underway from Igloolik. It should be a fun week coming up.
(I still have to admit though, the little kid in me wants to run out there and climb that snow bank, dive off and take a flying, leaping slide across that ice patch!)
