      The captain of "Lofoten" decided this morning that they canceled the voyage between Honningsvåg - Kirkenes because of bad weather and the ship sailed back to Alta where the ship is now moored tonight.
      Looks like nari doesn't get a complete round trip this time.

          It took me a (short) while before I managed to spot the Lofoten, but I found it at last. It's probably a vision + age thing.

              Is that Nari standing in front of the door to the restaurant? Is she waving?

                Could be, she probably expect to have her picture taken as they pass Bengt's home, being a long time CVF member.

              I love these images.... it almost looks like the ship is speeding at a much higher speed than her maximum available power.

                  Fantastic images of a truly spectacular lady with a rich and very impressive history!

                  Imagine if those that built her in the early 60's could see her still going strong like this, they would have been so proud!

                      If it is any consolation it is only +2.5 degr. here right now.

                    Bravo!

                    I have seen her many times in the past, but I never get tired of looking at her. When she disappears from the service, it will be a big loss historically. She is the last of the ships that made my interest in Hurtigruten an intergral part of my earlier life.

                      If she is to be doing excursions in the far North, I will try to follow her. This plan of taking her off the coastal voyage could well work out - she needs less stress in her old age.....

                        Being used is very important in order to have her operational, but as you say, I agree that a little less stress would also be advantageous for her.

                          Some old images of Lofoten, taken many years ago already.

                          I had not planned to share these images, but let's see if anyone fancies - or enjoys - them anyway.
