The weather has deteriorated and it is raining again. The rain is never heavy but just enough to require the constant wearing of our waterproof jackets. After this trip I never want to see my red jacket again. I have it on in every photo!
Started our day today with a walk through the Tromso Botanical Gardens. It is noted for its display of arctic flora and we were very lucky today to see the elusive blue arctic poppy that only blooms for a few days each year. The ...
