    Re: This is Honningsvåg / Nordkapp

    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.

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

    Here there are cottages and Lavvo tents.








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

    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.

    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??

    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
