    Happy belated birthday to you from me as well, Sigve.

    May each day ahead bring you happiness, good health, some wealth and most of all - some of the things that you are dreaming of.

      I've not been on board for a while so missed Sigve's birthday. But even though it's very late I can still say:


      HERE'S HOPING YOU HAD A VERY GOOD TIME
      ON YOUR SPECIAL DAY

      AND
      WILL ENJOY A REALLY FINE
      YEAR AHEAD

          Takk, Bengt. Keep posting photos of Lofoten - I always love your night photos as she steams past you in Tromso.

        HAPPY BIRTHDAY NARI

          Thank you for posting good wishes along with my favourite ship. One day before I get too ancient I will return to her for some nostalgia.

        Happy birthday to you, may you have a great day!

          Hmmm, I knew three of the men in the photo, which was taken 6 years after I left. The Cable Station was instituted in the 1930s to boost the signal between Fiji and Bamfield, Canada. I don't know about the plane - there was a landing strip but only for very small planes...
          All the Cable station houses were concrete, except for the Manager's -it was wooden with a tin roof.
          The launches look very familiar so it must be an old photo (?late 50s?)
          The lagoon looks wide and good for shipping but it could not take ships larger than 600 tons. Coral boulders and many shallow areas.
          All quite nostalgic - thanks for posting!

          I missed the video - just watched it now. Quite interesting questions asked by the audience about various islands. I was surprised that my sister talked as though she was an only child. No mention of me, at all. Yet we did a lot of things together. including the catching of crabs to feed our pet fish.

          Thanks, Mark! I was wondering if one gets to the point when birthdays become irrelevant - but CVF has proven that theory invalid..!

        Belated Happy Birthday Nari.
