Button Bay is the secluded little cove just around Eskimo Point where Fort Prince of Wales rests as the iconic outpost of the long-lost fur trade in the north. The rocks of Eskimo Point are resting areas for polar bears seeking some quiet and solitude during the summer months. Quite often groups of travelers can see and photograph polar bears on these rocky shores. These shots by Churchill photographer Katie de Meulles were captured this week and show the happenings around Button Bay.
Once in Button Bay there are sometimes bears swimming across to the beach or coming in from the northern shore to congregate in Churchill and await the ice pack of November. From there they will venture out to hunt seals all winter then return in the spring again!
