Tuesday, March 24,'09

Per is still headed north. He sent an interesting email from today's travels. I'll let him tell you about it:

Hi Tom,
Honningsvåg research. Sorry for my short emails. Have to be fast because of the internet connection. Have added some pictures from today, Honningsvåg and Havøysund area. Visited the fishery district, and was talking to young and old fishermen on the docks. I had a short interview with a retired fisherman. In the pictures you can see open doors at the fishery houses. Fishermen were drinking coffee and tea inside these old houses, and told me that all the floats from the old days were thrown away on the last cleaning a month ago. Bad luck!
A photo from the fishery museum is added showing teardrops...NOT for Sale...bad luck again! Lol
See You! Per

Some great photos of the north giving us a glimpse of Norway's spectacular beauty. The little boat below the dockside building, the one on the right, sure is a beauty. Her lines are wonderful, and remind me of the lobster boats used in Maine. I daydream of running her in those waters, close to those breathtakingly cold mountains. The photo of the helicopter and the ship, are titled, "Rescue Team." Wonder what will unfold in today's travels? I'm writing this at 7:00 A.M. Wednesday, and will be looking forward to hearing from Per at breaktime, at lunch, after the day is over...whenever.
