Today we got a reminder that patience is a valued trait in expedition cruising. National Geographic Endurance anchored overnight in Dundas Harbor in anticipation of a morning landing. The morning had other plans for us, as the hillsides were shrouded in fog during breakfast. By 9:30 a.m., we decided to sit tight and wait out the fog on board the ship.

During lunch, the sun began to poke through. By 1:00 p.m., the scouts were already on shore checking for polar bears that might be lurking.

What started as a gloomy, foggy day turned into a glorious, warm, and sunny day for hikes and walks. We just had to be patient.
