Found our Airbnb 5km out of town on the crest of a hill overlooking the huge lake. Being greeted by 4 huskies was most welcoming.
Unpacked our bags and headed back to town for a feed. Salt Bistro was the go and the manager was most helpful with advice on the Northern Lights and things to do downstream from our current location. He tempted us with his iPhone pics of the Northern Lights, but also advised that this night would not be fruitful as snow and storm was forecast.
Talk about "bill shock", the small pizza, two glasses of red and two caffeines dented the credit card to the tune of $137. The same meal back in MLB would be valued at around $45 to $50.
We drove back to our beds for the night and again the sky was covered in cloud. We realised there would be no interruption to our sleep as the need to check for the Northern Lights was now a moot point.
