Our day in Sisimiut started out a little drab and a little wet. But a rainy day in Greenland wasn't enough to dampen our spirits. You don't go on an adventure style vacation in Greenland and let a little rain hold you back. Garbed in spiffy new blue jackets courtesy of Fram and other appropriate gear for inclement weather, we set off on an historical hike to Tele Island. Tele Island is the site of the original occupation of Sismiut which was over 4000 years ago. Since the time of the Saqaq culture there have been different waves of people occupying the Sisimiut area.
Later in the afternoon the rain let up and became quite pleasant to stroll around the town.
After everyone was on board we were treated to a fantastic kayaking demonstration by two of the local guys on their hand made kayaks. Wow! They sure have kayaking chops! There are 36 different ways to roll a kayak and we saw many of them demonstrated. With a paddle. Without paddle. Paddle in one hand. Paddle behind your back. With a half metre long paddle. With no paddle and no hands. They just kept on rolling.
