Kongsfjord

The night had been a bit roug­her than expec­ted, but a pie­ce of cake after my trai­ning bet­ween Ice­land and Jan May­en! Pos­si­ble, howe­ver, that some on board may not agree with me on this 😉 but this was all quick­ly for­got­ten after some good hiking over the hills of Blom­strand­hal­vøya, with grand views over the gla­ciers in Kongsfjord. Polar fox, Long-tail­ed skua and their fri­ends, they were all at home.

Ny Åle­sund has been a con­s­truc­tion site more than any­thing else for years and does curr­ent­ly not have the charme it used to have in the past. A shorter stop only. But nice to see my books back in the shop, after years whe­re the manage­ment thought books are no good. (Is this so? Are shot glas­ses and key han­gers pre­fer­red abo­ve good books?)

The evening enter­tain­ment was gre­at: the Ny Åle­sund water ski ama­teur club in full action. With a bit of tri­al and error on the way to suc­cess 🙂
