(Our first swim of the holiday!!) The water was icy cold, and there was no sand, just rocks, so it was very hard to take it! We went in to our knees then chickened out! We walked up along the beach a bit to a part where the rocks were smaller to try again. Darren looked like ...
... then wandered around the city centre and ended up in a department store cafe on the fourth floor with some great views of the town square - see some pics below. We enjoyed a coffee and shared a custard slice.
We continued our meander around - checking out a hardware shop, buying Craig some mittens for when we get to Tromso - he realised it just wasn't going to be practical keeping his hands in his pockets to keep them warm. Around 2pm we headed back to the ...
