    Re: This is Honningsvåg / Nordkapp

    Just for completeness - this one's on the Finnmarken thread too, but a stunning view of Finnmarken's return to service - from Radio Nordkapp's fantastic webcams on the Repvåg Kraftlag building (www.nordkapp.tv).

    Cheers,

      Of course Radio Nordkapp (www.radionordkapp.no) offers other delights - such as Radio Bingo. Great for learning the numbers in Norwegian!!

        This one from 2006 - just come across it! Polarlys has done the Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeep - Beeep - Beeeeeeeeeeeeeep bit.

        Ever wanted to shout "It's behind you!"? I also really like the long queue of fishermen on the side with the nice view of the Hurtigruten Quay, but not the Hurtigruten.



        OK, I'll come clean - it's not as exciting as it looks, the Fishing Boat is on Kai 3, and Polarlys was swinging in behind her - but it made a fun photo!

          Looks like Honningsvaag is getting a bit different visitor today.
          The LNG Carrier Arctic Princess is heading in. ETA 0900 hrs. L/T:


          She is a 150,000 Cbm. LNG Carrier: http://www.hoeghlng.com/shipping/fle...-Princess.aspx

          That should be enough gas for the BBQs in Honningsvaag for the nearest 1000 years.

            Arctic Princess is anchoring in a bay just West of Honningsvaag just now.
            A similar size LNG Carrier, the Soyo is at anchor off Hammerfest.
            What is going on???

            PS> The Soyo is probably more used to tropical waters, since it is named after the Offshore Supply Base in Northern Angola.

              They often spend extended periods of time moored off in the sound - I assume waiting for the next load. Usually 'Arctic' something or other.

              Just as an example, here's an old Radio Nordkapp article from during the Pilot Boat Drivers' strike: http://www.radionordkapp.no/nyheter....=16590&katID=8

                This time the Arctic Princess is in Pilotage area as the Pilot boarded off H'vaag.
                Could it have something to do with the strike in the oil Industry. Is Melkoya affected??

                  Taste the King Crab

                  On the last voyage of Nordstjernen, returning from Svalbard in August 2012, the ship visited Honningsvåg, and during the afternoon there was an excursion called “Taste the King Crab”.




                  A bus had been arranged and as I was sitting near the front I even managed to take a photo as it approached the tunnel beneath Honningsvågfjellet, before arriving at our destination, Sarnes.

                    Here there are cottages and Lavvo tents.








                    Another group, on a longer excursion, were heading off into the fjord.

                      Our King Crab experience began with some they’d caught earlier, and a hands-on photo opportunity.

                        We are shown how to kill and prepare the crab, removing the carapace and cutting off the legs, which contain the succulent meat.

                          CVF member “Stranded wreck” volunteered to have a go at the preparation.

                            We go inside the tent for coffee, the fire is lit, water boiled, and the crab is cooked.

                                We then have the opportunity to take a stroll outside.
