Word-of-Day-Challenge-Zero

~~~~~

zero

no quantity or number; nought; the figure 0.

Not quite the 40 Below

as advertised…

But still much colder than our chilly 13 and 14 Celsius

on December 02 and 03 respectively.

Oranges of sorts from all over.

General Motors called this colour ‘Jaffa‘.

Most people call it orange.

 

 

A burnt orange?

 

Even the clothes line has orange.

 

Oranges?

 

 

Another orange colored daisy.

FOWChallenge-Chill

~~~~~

~~~~~

chill

an unpleasant feeling of coldness in the atmosphere,
one’s surroundings, or the body.

For the few minutes it took to have this photo taken,

we were all smiles in the 40 below zero room.

However, I think  a few minutes was enough for us.

Especially since we experience 40 above zero

more often than near Zero temperatures.

This team of huskies had just pulled

a four wheel motor bike around a track…

for the tourist watching from the paddler wheeler,

The Discovery II.

 

They could’t get into the river quick

enough to cool down.

While I don’t h ave any photos of them shaking dry,

I have yet to see any working dogs not give themselves

a very hearty shake to dry off after a swim on a hot day.

FOWChallenge-Bargain

~~~~~

For last year’s visit to Canada and Alaska we

flew with Air Canada on a 2 for 1 deal.

Because we only stepped onto

an Air Canada flight in Brisbane

I initially thought the 2 for 1 deal

referred to the Brisbane – Vancouver leg.

While speaking to the travel company

I learned that the 2 for 1 deal applied to all flight sectors. 

So we flew from Melbourne to Brisbane,

Brisbane to Vancouver,

Vancouver  to Victoria and

from Fairbanks to Vancouver

then all the way home to Melbourne…

for what seemed the bargain price of $2,000. 

I was expecting that per person. 

Thank you Air Canada.

The only flight we had to pay for was

our Air Arctic flight to Coldfoot.
