Walrus imagery was the primary goal of visiting Svalbard, yep plenty of bears there they say but we'd imaged bears in
Kaktovik. It took four days before we could image the Walrus...partly due to trip cancellations (nasty weather) and trips
that made it half way to the colonies only to have to turn back due to weather. It was very exciting because the little
boat was way smaller than the waves and confused seas; and us knowing our survival time in the water was practically
nill. So for a while I though it was going to be a wash, but on the last day the seas north of Longyearbyen turned into
a beautiful glass like mirror allowing us to reach the Walrus colony-

Hehe it was! I'm old enough I don't fret too much-had a good life mentality.
But next trip will def. be to someplace much warmer.

Your adventures are wonderful MedicineMan, but I think it's time you took a more story telling approach with a wild kingdom view point. I know you must have a gopro ..?? Just a suggestion lol .... Livin the dream MedicineMan
