Summertime has arrived suddenly, with temperatures at 15 degrees celcius today.

As a result we see: Someone taking a child for a motorbike ride; a happy dog dripping like a wet mop; A family walking around with even the baby wearing sunglasses.

Trip to Paulatuk, part 1: A little community by the ocean

Paulatuk has about 400 people and is located on the shore of the now-frozen Beaufort Sea.

Local activities include hunting for caribou and fish species like arctic char.
