27: Day of Rest

sunny 20 °C

Quite a slow day today with only one real stop in the whole day, therefore we had a really well deserved sleep in. Just after we got going we crossed back through the arctic circle line. A free drink was on offer on the top deck but I just couldn’t be bothered! We all received certificates of achievement for passing the arctic circle from the boat (which is pretty funny considering all we did was pay for someone to take us across the circle!)

We then spent our morning reading, playing cards and emailing before we pulled into Sandnessjoen just before lunch. We had a fairly quick stop so we spent our time walking around the waterfront and looking for a box of tissues for Bookie who is still suffering from a head cold.
Two brief stops in the afternoon and we motored past this famous landmark in Norway- the holey mountain. Apparently there is another troll story that goes along with the mountain and that this troll made the hole in the mountain to stop him needing to climb over the mountain to see what was happening on the other side!

Early night tonight as we have a big day tomorrow.
