    A promise is a promise Mark. Here are pictures taken during our call at Honningsvag last week (Sunday) when Finnmarken was docked.
    It was a splendid day with fresh snow, deep blue sky and a stunning sun.
    Françoise and I had an unforgettable walk along the white streets of the city and on the banks of the ocean. Really, it was a highlight during this wonderful voyage.

          Thank you, yvneac, for the displays of my favourite town in Norway, ever since 1997.

            Happy you enjoy it Nari

          Fantastic Yves - soooo pleased you and Françoise had a great time in the village. My brother in law doesn't appear in any of the photos! Only 3 months now and we will be back there on the edge of the world. Thanks so much for sharing the photos.
          Cheers,

          Mark.

            Maybe I bumpted into your brother in law in the street, who knows?
            Anyway the people I spoke with were not really locals. The owner of the bakery where I had the best capuccino and coockies in Nornorge was a French speaker from Guinea and the manager of the gallery just in front the bakery is a compatriot from Le Mans, 100km from my home town! Honningsvag, northest capital of French-speaking world.....

              As a conclusion, the more "dramatic place" of the village, the Church which survived at the atrocities of IIWW.

                Gorgeous views of Honningsvåg in perfect weather, Yves!
                Oh and I especially adore #183.4

                    It must have been snowing a bit since Yneac was there:

                      Easter weather in Finnmark is not the best:

                        Yup - been like it for ages now, particularly through reading www.radionordkapp.no every day to watch what's been happening on Magerøya. Last week the snow plough (brøtebil) driver got stuck in his lorry for over 24 hours - as did the snowblower driver who went out to rescue him! (http://www.radionordkapp.no/nyheter/...i-broytebilen/)

                        They had the helicopter out with its clever pulse generators to move the avalanches (http://www.radionordkapp.no/nyheter/...es-se-videoen/), then another load fell. Various of the hurtigruter have taken exciting routes past Gjesværtappen and Nordkapp (http://www.radionordkapp.no/nyheter/...undt-nordkapp/).

                        The man who went out to fix the ventilation at Nordkapp has been there six days - eating his way through all the food that the hurtigruter passengers haven't eaten because the buses can't get anywhere (http://www.radionordkapp.no/nyheter/...-snart-en-uke/) - and now, as the article says - the supermarkets are delivering by fishing boat (http://www.radionordkapp.no/nyheter/...or-bestilling/).

                        The boats have got in every day though, and Widerøe is actually managing a pretty good service into Valan airport.

                        This has been great fun to watch!!
                        Cheers,

                        Mark.

                          Is that the kind of weather you expect for your next vacations in H'vag, Mark? In case don't forget your survival rations...

                          I'm expecting a proper Finnmark summer Yves - sun, rain, snow, hail, wind - all within the same 24 hours!

                          Jura, that's a favorite!
                          Lagavulin also makes sense.

                        Bringing you lot back from the peaty products of the Highlands & Islands to Nordkapp - the weather continues - to the point that the kommune has chartered on of the Gjesvær tourist boats to do a shopping run!

                          Brrrr! The kind of weather inviting you to stay in the warm at Honni Bakes with a good capuccino.
