Luke is now stunningly handsome. I should try and take a picture. Not seen Benjamin yet. Having John on board is great he adds a vitality to the cruise. That was John behind the white beard. Food has been outstanding.
We had a mimosa and Bloody Mary get together yesterday. It was a sea day and I think this might be better than a cocktail part in the evening. There are always conflicts with late tours, dining reservations, and often the block party.
More relaxed and it worked out well.
Right now we are sailing into our first Norwegian Fjord. The sun is shining, clear blue sky, just a few thin white clouds for contrast. Not a breath of wind. Totally spectacular with the green mountains and colorful homes on the banks of the water.
We had a wonderful day in Harstad. The scenery of the town and fjord was beautiful. Lots of pretty homes and flower gardens. Some did a hike and absolutely loved it. We walked along the fjords which was really beautiful on the way to visit a small historic church. The views from the coach were stunning, a very scenic drive. My favorite thing was a model replica of a Norwegian town complete with little people, trains, cars and even a ski jump.
