marine life looks like it's from outer space



Meeting these burly giants on my cruise to the Arctic circle was awe-inspiring! Hundreds of them of them huddled together, grunting loudly & lazily as they slept along the shores of the craggy island. Suddenly, one Polar bear came upon the crest, then a few minutes later another. They galvinized their massive bulks and heaved themselves en mass into the frozen waters. Surrounding our boats, they shoved & grunted but did not threaten. We cautiously left their watery sanctuary.
