Ice on the move...

Earlier in the week, I posted a short note on sea ice; the gist being that a lot of sea ice had disappeared since we were here in June. I naively thought that it had melted and was gone for good. For example, here is one of those pictures from earlier in the week:

This morning, I was surprised to see that a significant amount of ice had moved back towards shore. This ice must move around depending on wind direction, currents, etc.
