    The birds seemed a little crazy that day, all clustered together on the hillside and making a tremendous noise, though I missed photographing the commotion when Polarlys announced her arrival!

    Here is a link to the photos of the abandoned boarding school at Sarnes.

    To finish with, just a few remaining photos taken that gloriously sunny day in Honningsvåg.

    Dear Mark, what a special and wonderful post –goodness only a year! I can hardly remember not having our PoloUK around! Thank you for all the fun and friendship.

    And I was just about to send my eternal thanks to our Captain too, but now I can join with you in this thread...

    You see, by a wonderful coincidence, I am just about to press “submit reply” on this my 11000th post!

    Well, it's just over a year since I came across CVF -completely by accident - and found myself able to interact with other folk that share my enjoyment in photography, ships and Scandinavia (and many other things!. This is my 1,000th post - so I thought I'd look for something that sums much of that up - I've come up with this one: Beautiful Honningsvåg in the sun on a summer afternoon. Midnatsol on the berth, the sky blue, fluffy white clouds, fish for dinner. My Unni was behind me asking if I was really going to take ANOTHER photo!!

    Thanks Jan Olav for providing us with this wonderful place to share so much in such a positive, constructive and friendly way - and thanks to the rest of you for keeping me occupied and entertained!!

    Dear Lady C,

    Wonderful photos... we actually had King Crab as well a week ago on board the ferry... yummy delicious! But, I ate too much of it that day, so it'll be a while before I want it again I think.

    I've said it before, but like to repeat myself, you have an amazing eye and attention to detail. Your photography is always such a great inspiration. You have a great talent with your camera.

    I'm hungry.

    Very happy memories of visiting Brother in Law in H'våg in previous years - just occasionally he'll disappear for an hour and come back with a carrier bag full of King Crab legs. A little while and a very big saucepan later .....


    Wonderful photos Cecilia!

    Time to leave, and head back to the ship.

    Returning to the lavvo, the crab is ready to serve.







    Delicious …and they came round with extra helpings! No wonder I needed an extra small main course at dinner later that evening!

    After photographing an abandoned school boarding house building (for another thread later…) I take a panorama view of a lake…


    …and see a deer on the skyline.

    We then have the opportunity to take a stroll outside.

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

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

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