Across the North Sea

31 October 2011 | Aberdeen, Scotland
On Friday morning we made our way from Leirvik (photo is of one of our last views of Norway) to head across the North Sea.. It wasn't too bad to start with but by late Friday evening, early Saturday it had picked up and the seas got bigger and sky darker. Saturday night wasn't pleasant at all with strong southerly winds, nasty seas and one thing after another deciding to break on us! It was a bit too rough to put kettle on or cook so we were deprived of coffee too. The North Sea is a very busy place with all the oil rigs and service vessels which seem to spend a lot of time going round in circles. Sunday was a bit of a blur but the sun was shining for a while in the morning and the wind turned southwest, with conditions improving by the late evening. We finally arrived at Aberdeen in the early hours of Monday morning and tied up in the same spot we were at in June! I saw several dolphins just at the entrance to the harbour which was great. Although quite worn out and ready for sleep we had a whisky to celebrate crossing our wake and arriving back in Scotland :-) So now we are doing a few repairs and waiting for the weather to improve so we can get back to Hartlepool.
