Boat ride with my family!

We had a great day today! We went on our first boat ride since 2009.  A church in Florida gave us some money to do something we wouldn't normally do. Taking a boat ride is something we don't normally do.  :)

So today we we went to the small village of Oqaatsut. The name of the village may be familiar to my regular readers on here. It's the village that Marty and Eli hiked to in July. We were originally going to go to a different village south of us, but they said the ocean was too rough, so we went to Oqaatsut.

We really enjoyed the ride. It was cold but we enjoyed getting to see all the icebergs, some of them up close and personal. :)

The kids enjoyed playing with some Chinese tourist that came along as well. I do believe that, for the most part, my kids have never met a stranger. They have a way of making friends quickly.  :)  We also got to talk to a Danish lady about the Baptist church here in Ilulissat.

We played around with some of the puppies and some stranded icebergs.  We got to watch a man cut up a seal and we enjoyed a picnic lunch by the ocean. (As a side note, our lunch was chicken, not seal.)

I have uploaded some pictures to Facebook. It was a pretty big download, so instead of re-uploading them to here I'm going to give you a link to Masey's Thoughts on Facebook.  Thank you for taking the time to read about our adventures here. :)   Oh, here is the link to the pictures on Facebook.  Here is the link to like Masey's Thoughts on Facebook. 

My wonderful family


  1. Praise the Lord for such special blessings! I'm sure it was a lot of fun...and just being together is always the best part:)

  2. Sounds like a wonderful day - the iceburgs, seals, boat ride, picnic lunch, and every other "adventure". You sure packed a lot in to one day.
    Making memories on the field is the best!
