        Beautiful, beautiful Finnmark in winter. Great images and memories from your cruise on board.

        Does anyone know the name of that local boat of FFR (the one in the last image)?

        I didn't know we still had ships like that still in service in Norway.

          That little boat from FFR is "Gamle Mårøy" built at Kaarbø mechanic yard, Harstad in 1959. It's undergoing restoration in cooperation with the Riksantikvaren (Directorate for Cultural Heritage) and as such got listed as Vernet (protected) in 2007

            Thank you for the information, S!

            After reading your response identifying the name of the vessel, I googled her and found a very charming and beautiful vessel in images and text. Personally, I think she is the much cuter little sister of "Gamle Salten"....

                  Very nice report from Brønnøysund. I enjoy being there, but preferably in the summertime.
                  I wonder; do Brønnøysund and Mosjøen "fight" about which city is in the middle of Norway? Mosjøen has a sign saying something like "You are now on the exact center spot of Norway" :-)

                  Now, do you all know the orca Keiko? From the movies Free Willy? That orca was once so famous it drew all kind of media and people to a very small place in Halsa municipality in 2003.
                  The orca Keiko died of pneumonia at Taknes in Halsa December 12th 2003, and the whale is buried there, at the beech. On the side of the road E-39 to Trondheim, the road authorities put a sign saying "Keikos grave 3 km", and starstruck people and even tourists traveled there like crazy.
                  Anyway, that was many years ago, and I don't belive there are many visiting the grave these days. My daughter and I were alone for the entire visit last Friday and as Taknes being a nice place, here are a few pictures

                  The area viewed from the parking area. We look into the fjord towards Vinje. The small island there is Taknesøya (if anyone want to Google). The grave and sign can be seen in the lower part of the picture

                  Under this pile of rocks lies the remains of orca Keiko

                  Had to take this one, as the sun lit up the small island

                    I'm one of those hundreds that have driven by the sign indicating the location of the grave, always thinking perhaps next time.

                    The location is either in place where I have to hurry to catch the ferry or where I have to hurry to get home to Trondheim.

                    Great images from the place, great location!
