Change of plans

09 September 2013 | Haugesund, Norway
We explored the Hardangerfjorden up to Jondal and then turned around and headed out, landing in Haugesund. We are tied up to the quay in the middle of the town. It is a great location, close to everything we need and very cheap. Only problem is the local nightclub is busy until 4:00 a.m., and can be very noisy. They do like to party on a Saturday night. Haugesund is a fast-growing community, mainly due to oil rig production and the jobs it provides.
Our boat is laid out for the two of us to be very comfortable and the dance becomes quite different when we have company on-board. But we do love having our guests share our experiences with us and when they leave we feel a great hole that it takes a while to fill. Tom has taken off, he is going to work on a Norwegian farm for two days with a gentleman he met here. And then he is off to Oslo to fly home. We have really enjoyed having him with us.
Nokomis, oddly enough, is not heading south and then east, but heading west. We hope to land somewhere between Aberdeen and Newcastle on England's east coast. We have a good northerly wind for a couple of days and are confidant we can make good time across. We hope to be in London in 7 to 10 days. Cruisers like to say their plans are made in sand and they are sticking to them. Wish us well on this crossing.
