On a grey day in May (the actual day this time in 2008) the first supply ship of the year arrived in Uummannaq.
This was exciting as we had a couple of boxes on that ship, full of provisions that we either couldn’t get in Uummannaq, or wanted to by in bulk. It would take a few days before the boxes were delivered to our door, but just knowing they had arrived was exciting.
We would spend the next few days unpacking, storing, and enjoying everything we had ordered, including some things we had ordered the previous year. Jane’s twin sister and her husband were our lifesavers, buying things in Denmark, and boxing them ready to be shipped the following spring.
