7/2012 Update: a series of blog entries from a Norway cruise I was fortunate enough to take in the Summer of 2008. Although it feels funny to have relayed trip updates via a blog, it was a pre-Facebook way of telling friends/family about my travels.
Kristiansand was a bit of a low key sort of day for us. Once again, we had no planned excursion and spent the late morning/early afternoon walking around the downtown/retail shops area. The weather was much better with some periods of actual sun! We didn't really make it to any notable sites, but had a nice time hanging out in the area. We headed back to the Rotterdam for our departure around 4 PM for Copenhagen. Tonight we're sailing through a rough stretch of sea that lies between Norway and Denmark. There's a lot of wind and the ship is really rolling a lot (nothing serious, but there's quite a difference between this and the calmer waters. The waves outside are really something to see. Here's a shot Bruce took while I was videotaping some ocean action.
