Honningsvåg and North Cape

We had an almost full day on sea. The weather had switched from sunny to what you expect in Norway. The clouds were hanging low. Fortunately, the weather cleared up when we started our trip to the monument.

We left Honningsvåg and traveled north to the North Cape, a 45 min bus ride. The view was slightly foggy. We tried to get a good pictures of the globe with us. However, the high tech automatic multi-program adaptable contraption of a camera had a hard time to do it right. The electronics had their worst day in their life. Finally, got some nice pictures with us, but of course they are not available on the Internet. Instead we photographed some plants and stones and statues and monuments and Norwegian waffles.

After a short North Cape video, we went back to the ship and saw our first reindeer. No red nose reindeer though, but white ones, brown ones, larger ones and tiny ones.

Back at the ship, we had dinner and the ship departed from Honningsvåg. At 0:30, it was still very light. You could even see colors. No we did not finish a bottle of something. Anyway, at 0:30, we passed by the North Cape from the sea side. We tried to make some nice pictures of the globe and radar station from below. Then we had a final late night snack, soup and one sausage (just for test purposes of course). Was delicious.
