|We start a long day of paddling, going back to another island of Skrealing group. The trip is about 7 hours, but it's not particularly tiring as it looks to be.|
|At about halfway, we stop in a suitable place (basically, some rocks coming out from Artic ocean)
for the lunch break.
|Soon, we leave again, continuing our kayak trip along the eastern coast of Ellesmere island, between icebergs and ice floes.|
|In late evening (or night?) we arrive in another area of Skrealing island, where we camp.|
|The weather improves and there is now a nice sky with a beautiful sun light.|

|As for the other Skrealing island, there are lots
of tent rings and other archeological remains left by ancient Esimos.
