Loving Lofoten

... but when that wind blows it is truly freezing! . Whaling. We could not believe there was whale on the menu! Apparently Norway ( mostly Northern Norway) is one of the only countries to commercially catch whales! For such an ethical country we were shocked. It's the minke whale on the menu, which we were told is plentiful here. No way! . 24 hours of daylight! It plays havoc with your biorhythms, you want to stay up really late, then the next day you feel like you are ...

... right across the mass to get back to my bike. There were however massive breaks in the ice which looked like mini glacier cuttings. On leaving Kiruna this morning I set up my satnav to take me to the ferry port of Svolvaer and it said arrival time would be about 13h30 or thereabouts. Well, as per usual with me and all my stopping I had only made it to the town of Oyjorda by 13h00 and so after filling up I decided to look for a coffee shop. Right on the seafront ...

... jammed packed with old, smelly stuff. No, it did look interesting but in the end I ran out of time.

Back on the boat we had a late dinner. I know I keep talking about food but some of it is really special. Last night I skipped dinner because I hadn't done much walking and wasn't very hungry.
