For­landsund – 05th July 2019

It does not hap­pen too often that we visit one and the same place twice during one trip. But today, we are back at Sar­stan­gen, whe­re we star­ted – feels like mon­ths ago! Back then, we had the two polar bears, which was gre­at, but … we could obvious­ly not visit the wal­ru­ses. But today was the day for that.

Addi­tio­nal­ly, we clea­ned up a sec­tion of the beach, so a lot of mari­ne plastic lit­ter is now remo­ved from the beach and sto­wed in bags on deck on Anti­gua.

Later, we ancho­red in Sel­vå­gen on Prins Karls For­land. Every once in a while, a few rain­drops whe­re fall­ling, but not too much, and other than that, the clouds made for a beau­ti­ful, quiet, almost melan­cho­lic atmo­s­phe­re. We could make some lovely walks and hikes across the tun­dra plains and up to some hills for stun­ning views.

Also in Sel­vå­gen, the­re was less plastic on the beach after our depar­tu­re than befo­re. The deck is fil­ling up with old fishing nets.

By the way, my new book is in print and it can now be orde­red 🙂 it is a pho­to book with the tit­le “Nor­we­gens ark­ti­scher Nor­den (1): Spitz­ber­gen – vom Polar­licht bis zur Mit­ter­nachts­son­ne”, with Ger­man text Click here for fur­ther details!
