11 August 2011 | Upernavik, Greenland
The tidy little community of Upernavik (it means The Spring Place). With a population of about 1100, Upernavik is the largest settlement in the area. The harbor is very open to the NW, but there are other places to anchor around the island of Upernavik to get shelter.
We made a very quick food and fuel stop here, we arrived after midnight, tied up to a fishery research boat on the dock, and were gone early in the afternoon. The blog is now a few days behind.
Thanks for the comments on the blog. Yes, Iceland is just around the corner from Greenland and it would certainly be a nice place to visit again.
