Texas Bar – 06 August 2018

It is supposed to be quite windy today out there off the coast, so we are happy to be safely at anchor in this lovely and well-sheltered bay in Liefdefjord. The clouds are hanging low and there is little to see of the beautiful landscape, so we take the morning more or less off and have some time to talk about polar bears in some detail.

It is clearing up a little bit in the afternoon, and soon we are out and about again. The clouds have lifted just enough to give us some greyish but fine views of Erikbreen, Hornbækpollen and Liefdefjord. During the highest bits of our walk, we are diving into the clouds. Very atmospheric, but it is quite good to know the area pretty well now.

After a visit to Hilmar Nøis’ old hut Texas Bar, we steam on to Mushamna. Tomorrow is also supposed to be windy at sea, so that should be a good place to anchor.
