Wednesday night I headed out for dinner with a friend who has been traveling with me. As we walked by the YK Centre we saw that it was -29C. But it felt so much colder than that…when I got back to the hotel I looked up the weather online…saw that it was indeed -29C but with the windchill it was -41C. So I suppose that’s why the 3 block walk from the hotel to the restaurant and back to the hotel again, felt so cold!
I honestly hope I get to visit this awesome city sometime in the summer. After all, this is my 2nd visit to YK...and a gal should visit every city in each season eh?
As I was walking…I stopped briefly…to snap a few photos. It was so cold…but my fingers worked with the help of my mittens…but I could only manage a few shots before my camera battery
died froze! (this is part of the reason the photos are a bit out of focus…as my camera wasn’t happy to be working in such cold temps!)
Just before walking into the hotel I snapped these selfies! Have to love frost covered lashes and coats!
My time in Yellowknife has flown by so fast. Thursday night I was lucky to meet up with some really good friends that moved here in the summer. It was great to have dinner, catch up with conversation and watch a 3-D movie. Thanks for the short, but awesome visit!
When this post is published I’ll be on my way back to Iqaluit. Looking forward to going home, but that won’t be for another week…meetings in IQ next week! All I can say is thank goodness for an amazing house sitter to take care of my house in Pang when I’m away. It’s awesome that I don’t have to worry about the pipes freezing, my plants not getting watered…and they have the opportunity to enjoy living in some peace and quiet! 🙂
