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 🙂
