Damn tech­no­lo­gy! Right now I start to enjoy wri­ting for the blog, and of cour­se the satel­li­te pho­ne based email stuff is brea­king down. I could not send any­thing for days, and now it looks as if I can at least send text again. No pics, but at least. So I hope it’s worth start­ing to wri­te again.

Heley­sund is one of Spitsbergen’s most fasci­na­ting and beau­tiful places. I am fasci­na­ted by curr­ents, that’s one way natu­re is dis­play­ing her gre­at forces. And the tidal cur­rent in Heley­sund can be ama­zing. Today, it was mode­ra­te, but enough for some nice eddies.

A long, nice hike over tun­dra and hills of basal­tic bed­rock. Some fog adding atmo­sphe­re to the views down to Heley­sund bet­ween colum­ns of rocks, stan­ding out on their own from the cliff. A polar bear having a nap on a litt­le island in the strait, not doing much else.

It was quite grey and fog­gy as we con­tin­ued going south. Not bad at all. One has to sleep a litt­le bit, every once in a while.
