    The big one is Crown Princess. Looks a lot worse from the other end!! Some more to follow in the weeks to come.

    Wonderful image from summer in Honningsvåg - still with snow in the hillsides!

    Wonderful that you got both the Lofoten and that gigantic ship in one shot.... that is a difference in size! WAOW!

    I'm a bit fascinated of the contrast between the old lady and the great shopping mall a.k.a. container style...

    A year until we're then again Ombugge - all being well! Aiming a little further south and west this year.

    More Gjesvaer stories to keep this thread alive, awaiting Mark's return: http://www.vg.no/nyheter/innenriks/f...en/a/23647083/
    Google translate come with some fun of their own, but I guess you'll will be able to get the main points of the story.

    Managed to keep spending to a sensible level in there, but some more goodies to make our little corner of the UK just a little more 'Scandi' in December.

    Meanwhile it was summer outside, and the locals were making full use of the travelling 'bedding plant' sale!



    Don't think the plants needed too much watering in.

    All a bit odd, being so Christmassy in June. Heidi-Marie keeps the shop looking superb though.









    Suppose this one depends on your point of view!!

    The evening of the 25th June, and an evening toddle out from the big city (Honningsvåg) to the country (Skarsvåg).

    As shown in the Cruise Ships in Norwegian Rain 2015 thread, Europa was in the harbour (but not on the arrivals list).



    With the tenders shuttling some wet - but apparently happy - German tourists between the ship and the manifold delights of this lovely little village.



    Most - as ever - on their way to the Nordkapp Jul og Vinterhus - with good coffee and excellent waffles always on the go.



    As ever, a link to the website. http://www.julehuset.no/eng/

    A few bits of string.





    And a few days later, going onto its new home. Not all that clear, but if you look above Costa Pacifica's mooring line you can see the green drum of rope on the right, and the rope going up onto a pulley on the stern of the fishing boat, and disappearing somewhere deep in the bowels.

    A few from this June's trip 'back home'.

    Not a bad view from the hill is it! Worth the rain to get clouds like these. Nordkapp looking beautiful on her berth too.
