Leknes Lofoton

We crossed the arctic circle about 2330 last evening which meant that it was light all night long. Completely overcast, it felt Luke the ship was sailing under a dome of milky glass with diffuse light coming from all directions.

Marty, who organised our expedition today had even managed to get us all priority tender tickets so we were on the first boat to shore. Our van and driver were there to meet us so we were on our way.

We drove all sling the shore line of this and two other islands, made a museum and gallery stop then ended at the Viking museum.

Heading along the single lane coastal road.


The midtour stop

And yes, that is a small beach and the water was quite cold.

    Really neat! So how much yarn have you bought? That’s the real question. 😉

    Ah, nice… I lived in Norway during June-Dec. 1978

    The warmer months in Oslo were fine, but as we headed towards winter, the sun came up at 11am and set at about 3pm, so not very cheery. It was interesting to me that this did not affect the patterns of family life, as children played outside after school regardless of the disappearing light.

    The part of my brain allotted to foreign languages has always been highly deficient, so I never did learn any Norwegian. But I did learn to cross-country ski!
