The forecast again was looking against us with 2 days of north easterlies due to fill in. However, we were woken early at 4am and as it was flat calm we fired up the banger and headed off up the fjords for Alesund. It took us all day but we got around the notorious headland of Statt before the wind filled in. Statt is so notorious there is apparently a plan to dig a tunnel through the headland so ships can bypass the point! Personally, I think that was an April fool some years back but it seems to be well published.

Anyway, we threaded our way up the fjords through the rocks and skerries (scary's if you ask me) with snow clad mountains with their glaciers showing all around. Quite stunning..... But actually quite like Arran!

Yesterday we took a series of buses and ferries to visit the Geiranger Fjord, e largest, deepest and fortunately warmest fjord hereabouts. Stunning scenery in the these fjords. 1000foot cliffs on either side rising another 1000 feet to snow and glacier tops.

The option to the ferries was a 70 miles and 11 hours each way on Time Bandit so we let the bus take the strain. Jolly pleasant it was too.

Tonighht, if the rain goes off we'll have a beer until the sun goes down. It will be along as it doesn't! It's daylight here pretty much 24/7. Great for "pressing on"!
