Today we docked at Tromso, a really nice community within another Fjord, even further North. We took a bus tour of the town, which, according to our guide, is a college town that used to rely on whaling, fishing, and seal hunting. The area is, of course, very beautiful. A bit like being in a picturesque Rocky Mountain town, but with water. The mountains are everywhere and the snowfall in Winter is immense. We also visited the Polaria center which houses an aquarium and other other North Atlantic/Arctic exhibits.
We pulled out of port around dinner time.
One of you asked why I wasn't doing a web gallery. Well, the Internet access aboard is very slow and extremely expensive (via satellite). I'm taking tons of shots as well as some video, so there should be more than enough to bore any and all of you. Here's an ocean shot though.
