        A few more Nordlys images, this time from Trollfjord, arriving in Rørvik on 19 June 2017.

        TF was on time, Nordlys a little late, so we waited for Nordlys to come onto the berth in front of us.

        Like a shark fin appearing over the hills.



        Nearly there, and probably very aware that there were many pairs of eyes watching her arrival ...



        Then the 'classic hurtigruten approaching' shot.



        Before diving across our bow and berthing perfectly - and quickly.



        Cheers,

        Mark.

          Neatly parked.



          Wakey-wakey.



          And left behind as Trollfjord backed out and headed north.

          Cheers,

            A few days later, 26 June 2017, and Nordlys is 'hurtigruten du jour' in Honnigsvåg, so time for a toddle, coffee, waffle etc.

            Excursionists out of the way, here come the Norwegians!



            Whilst at the special visitors entrance and exit bikes and wheelchairs were coming off, ambulance crew going on.



            No 'IKEA marketplace' here - not much has changed since TFDS days, including much of the branding.



            Lots of lovely things in the cafe.



            Not many on this one. We did see a lot of 'coffee club' activity during our time in the village, just not this day.

              It's just me, but this ship and others which are "glitzy" with multicolours turn me right off. I am probably being unfair but this ship (and others) look like a floating casino-come-Dali nightmare. Sorry!!

            Excellent photo-report from my beloved Rørvik!

            You even managed to include my step-grandmothers apartment in one of your shots!

                Two excellent images from Tromsø... I love these images, and I have stated the reason many times in the past: it brings me back to my teenage year seeing these ships pass our home twice every night all year round. It makes me recall the moments with a younger version of me with his nose pressed up against the window.

                Thank you for bringing those memories back to me with such high-quality images!

                  Nordlys on her 125th birthday on July 2nd 2018.... I was supposed to go on board for a piece of free cake, but as soon as I had parked my car, I was called out on business. That's life!
