May 2,

Some really great progress. Went canoeing down the margin. Today we have opened up from Marsden point in a line to Owens.  The margin north of Owens is up to 200 feet.  The bay North side of the lighthouse is now totally open, with a margin down the north shore of 200-300 feet.  By the time we get to the east shore, the ice is still solid to the shore, as near as we can tell, to Campbells point.  Travelling south of Marsden point the margin is 200 feet or so and still looked tight to shore past Honeysets bay.  Campbells point reports Bradleys bay is about 1/3 open on the north side of the bay.  Indian bay reports 2/3s open.
