Spitsbergen 09-27/07 with SV Antigua, part 3


Antigua, Woodfjord

Anti­gua in Woodfjor­den.

In the end, the time left was too short for a cir­cum­na­vi­ga­ti­on of Spits­ber­gen, it would just have been too much time making miles at the expen­se of the actu­al expe­ri­ence, so we tour­ned around and went to the west coast again and south into Isfjord. But by no means just the way back, we con­ti­nued the voya­ge just into the oppo­si­te direc­tion, fil­ling the time with beau­ti­ful and exci­ting arc­tic expe­ri­ence. We collec­ted a lot of plastic gar­ba­ge from the beaches, with the “best catch” (well …) in Woodfjord, this time. So now the­re are several cubic metres of plastic less on Spitsbergen’s beaches, and that is a usu­al rou­ti­ne on every trip, on many ships … good thing.

As I keep say­ing, Spits­ber­gen has so much more to offer than “just” polar bears, but of cour­se, a good sigh­t­ing (no dan­ger, no dis­tur­ban­ce) makes ever­y­bo­dy hap­py. We got one one the west coast, near the end of the trip. Talk of luck. Not exact­ly a clo­se encoun­ter, but beau­ti­ful.
