Thanks to Uwe in Frankfurt Germany for details on MORNING HAZE.

Smooth seas,

Doug

Doug,

We just arrive at Barrow.
The Shallow Bay is really shallow ;). No ice to Shingle Point or Herschel. We met our first ice at Demarcation Bay (West bound).
Some pictures soon! But here, at Barrow, the ice is on the shore on the west side. We wait for the east wind!
