September 12 Kevin called me at 00:30 that anchor is dragging. 35 kts and little to no visibility and our fjord is narrow. I tried to wait and see if it would hold where it was but it kept dragging. It's a 110 pound Bruce and never drug before even on the river with wheels on and 3 jet boats tied on. No choice pick her up and start circling up and down the fjord in high winds. Kevin soon found a comfort level and it worked good. Wind subsided a bit at 08:00 so we went out into the bay and called the SWL for a weather update. Ice solid from Wrottesley Bay to Coutts Island so no go today but winds to change to NE so maybe it will improve. We went back up the fjord farther than before as it cleared off and wind dropped. A river coming in at the top and lovely anchorage, beautiful in 25' and lots of room (in daylight). A polar bear was guarding a caribou hide, but left when we took the dinghy over to him. Walked up the river and counted about 50 tent circles of rocks which indicated the char fishing is probably good. SWL called for us to go for supper so we went out there but wind up again. We got laundry done and a great supper. We met more people and had a very pleasant visit. Back at our fjord, 5 miles from the bay anchoring wasn't as simple with zero visibility and 25 kt wind. Somehow now the anchorage seems very small.
