(12) The past few days in Harstad aka ‘Hash tag’
Saturday 16th – Tuesday 19th June
After leaving Sara at the bus station we spent the next few days at the campsite reading, on the internet, playing ‘harbour master’ on our ipods – great game you can download for free – Sharon is currently harbour master – we decided whoever was the winner had to do the chores for the day despite the fact Sharon was supposed to be resting…Tim suddenly discovered lots of his dirty washing needed doing when he was harbour master – eating, drinking tea and meeting fellow campers. We met many people, mainly from Scandinavia who were travelling in Norway.
We slept a lot – Sharon’s hand is much better and we’re ready to head off to the Lofoten islands tomorrow. We’re really looking forward to it – we’ve met so many people who have travelled through them and they sound amazing – so we’ll let you know!!
Off for an early night, we hope to get up early to get to Sortland (about 50 miles plus a ferry ride). We met a great Norweigan family at the weekend, who live on one of the Lofoten islands. They invited us to share their BBQ – we were eating bread and boiled eggs at the time so were only glad to accept. We had a lovely evening with them and they have invited us to stay tomorrow evening with them so are looking forward to it.
See you in the Lofoten islands!
Ps – to those of you who have been asking about our shark kite – there has been no wind to fly it. As soon as it’s windy we’ll fly’ old sharky boy’ as it’s fondly known, and post a picture : )
