      But of course we want cats Bengt! ...and none of this kidding Tommi! ...naturally I assume that cats goes without saying, exactly the same as any boat/ship that happens to be around!

        I echo Cecilia's request 100%. And could we have a few little lizards please, Bengt?

          Hello all,
          soon time to pack for the coming week, I really need a break from the everyday routines.

          I'm hitting Trondheim on Sunday, and having a rendez-vous with Richard on board Lofoten on Monday.
          Maybe our captain will have some time to spare?
          Bodø and Stamsund will be visited on Tuesday. Jan Martin and Carina, will you be around?
          Wednesday morning, Harstad - Kristian, Olaf? Later that evening I'm meeting ArticGateway in Tromsø where I'll leave Lofoten while Richard will go all the way around.
          All possibilities for more meetings on my way south, Joakim in Sandnessjøen?

          Anyone southbound on Finnmarken next week?

            Tommki, that certainly will be a "meet the family" trip.

                Bergen webcam is now showing how Lofoten is departing to Trondheim, about 11,5 hours after schedule.

                  A quick update from Trondheim,
                  Had a nice sightseeing with pakarang around the town. Not too easy to combine dusk, snowfall, photography and sightseeing, but we gave it a good try! :-) Thank you very much for the drive!
                  On the schedule side there's some things going on. Lofoten will be on schedule tomorrow morning from Trondheim. Richards however rebooked from Lofoten to Midnatsol, which actually is moored here in Trondheim. So tomorrow there's a CVF rendezvous on Pirkaia.

                      Why is Midnatsol in Trondheim as well?

                      As we were leaving from Bergen aboard MS Lofoten on Feb8th, we passed Midnatsol which was coming back to Bergen (around 11pm, so half a day early?). I wondered why she was coming back to Bergen at this hour... Is it the winter conditions that alter the schedule so much or something else?

                          Waved Tommi & Lofoten off from Pier 1 on schedule. We rendezvoused on both Midnatsol & Lofoten. Lofoten very smart with shiny black paint even on mooring "bollards", that won't last long!

                          I'm following Tommi N on Midnatsol tomorrow (to KKN & back to Bergen) - happy to met any CVF members at ports.

                          Having waved Lofoten off I started walking back to Midnatsol's berth (cruise ship berth near Pierterminalen) via local REEMA1000. Came out from shop to see Midnatsol sailing away! - fortunately only to the vacated Pier 1. (I did expect her to move this afternoon but it did come as a bit of a shock to see my ship sailing off)
                          Fair Winds & Weather,

                          Richard

                          TF 09/05; TF BGO-KKN-TOS/KH TOS-BGO 05/06(hit seamen's strike ); TF Xmas/New Year 12/06; MS 05/08; Lofoten 03/10; MS 03/11 TRD-KKN-BGO(broke ship ); MS 01/12 (Astronomy Voyage), LO 03/13 - changed to MS (Astronomy Voyage again!) as LO delayed after maintenance; LO 03/14 BGO-KKN-TRD

                          Forthcoming: Lofoten 31/10/15 BGO-KKN-BGO

                            Richard, you seem specialized for extraordinary happenings on Hurtigruten travels. I wish you a nice trip, i hope you will enjoy being on Midnatsol instead of Lofoten. You know, that wouldn't have been my option. We will follow you both.

                            Again: Enjoy, both of you!!

                                And todays weather is: a lot of snow! Visibility is approx 500 meters, not too many pictures taken today. Anyone have a lunch recommendation in Bodø?
