    MS Lofoten, the captain and his crew are ready to departure from Bodø





    And I had to wink goodbye to the old lady (Lofoten) and the young lady (Doris)



    And from my wiewpoint at Nyholmen Skandse I "followed" them out from Bodø. And wished them a nice trip further north.

      Out of Bodø it seemes to be a sort of a speed-competition between MS Lofoten and HSC Steigtind




      "Steigtind" is lucky, and got the inner lane .........and takes a short lead. Even if "Lofoten" had pole position....


      Oh..dear, what a speed.......



      And the winner is........



      And on my way home, I got a last glimse of MS Lofoten far out at the Landegodefjord


      Goodbye Doris. And thank you SO much for your nice visit. BON VOYAGE

        Terrific photos Martin. You’ve been so quick with them that I am rather confusing the sequence of events by posting the webcam of Lofoten arriving in Bodo that I saved earlier today! But Doris will be delighted to see all these pictures of her trip from a different viewpoint after her holiday, so here it is.


        Oh and I loved the Lofoten and and Steigtind race! Must remember to ask Doris how much Steigtind rocked the boat in that overtaking manoeuvre!

          Great setting !

              At 01.50 Lofoten moored in Bodø harbour on south tonight







              And cargo-room was filled up with all kinds of stuff, in the middle of the night




              A very clear night. With billions of shining stars on the sky. And also a beautiful Northern Light (nordlys) is dansing on the sky between the stars
              (unfortunately my simple pocket-camera wasn`t able to catch it)



              And through all this scenario, our dear friend Doris is sleeping on board



              ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
              Sleep well, and sweet dreams DORIS

                I promised to meet Doris at the dock here in Kristiansund tomorrow at around 4:15 PM.
                Now, I had to go to the doctor yesterday and he told me to rest my knee until 1st November and stay home. Tomorrow I will also go through an examination in an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machine at the hospital, to see if there are something seriously damaged inside the knee.
                So, here I am at home, me, my crutches and all of you...

                But meeting a fellow member is so important, so if you read this Doris: If I'm at the dock, I'm at the dock...., if you don't spot me there...., you know the reason...

                Have a further great voyage!!!!

                      Could Doris be one of these?

                        ... or maybe Doris is by the railing there?

                          Doris & spouse surely were happy and content Wednesday afternoon!

                          Joined in Risøyhamn and reluctantly had to wave goodbye to them in Stokmarknes. If NORDSTJERNEN was operative now, I'd have sailed with them to Trondheim and returned north with her.

                          Had a wonderful day with Doris - we ran all around the ship (in step like twins) and even jumped past fences at Sortland (my idea) to get good pictures. We also visited the Hurtigrutemuseum together. Her husband (very nice guy) soon realized that keeping up with us hurtigruteNERDS was futile...

                          Tonight I had selected and edited pictures from the event. BUT - as it so often happens with the DARNED INTERNET "FREE SERVICES" - PHOTOBUCKET had changed and WOULD NOT ACCEPT MY LOGIN.

                          Shit happens. (I'm gonna pay to rent me own site for pictures.) The immediate solution may be to mail downsized pictures to somebody who can post them tomorrow to get them in sequence with Doris' trip.

                          Our dear webmaster is presently harrassed by the NAV (yeah, been there done that etc).

                          Sooo, who else can take on my pics?

                            Photos?
                            I can try, but I am registered at Photobucket, too!

                              Dear Eilun -

                              My trouble is that I have not used Photobucket for a long time and they have changed.

                              EDIT: Couldn't find out how to attach pictures to a PM.

                              Any volunteers can send an email and I'll mail the pictures?

                              EDIT-EDIT: HurtigruteMartin just PM'ed his email adress, I sent the pics hoping he will/can post them.

                              Jeez - Northern Lights are crazy ablaze in the sky here, I'm running between the PC and the balcony...
