A few times a day! :shock: Let's be conservative and say a few is 3 rather than 5! SO that is 31 'Hello, it is me again!' 81 times on a cruise! Mmmmm! might get away with that on a 7 night cruise but after 27 nights, it could be a little tiresome!

It's me again is preferable to easy peasy that was said at least 50 odd times in 15 minutes last night. He was driving us crazy in the quiz :roll:

Just waiting for the bus to the North Cape. Another sunny day but those big black clouds are looming over the mountains! Layered up but was too hot, dare say it will go back on once we get to Nordkapp.

I've got it. thanks Jim. The weather looks better up at the Cape than in Honningsvag.

Perhaps we'll get a wave from one of the Mates when they get there. :P

Actually Marie, the weather closed in and by the time we got to the North Cape, it was pretty grim. I sent P out into the rain to get the pics of of the globe, whilst I stayed in the dry of the visitors centre. :lol:
Nevertheless, the trip was memorable and we are very glad that we did it. :)

Darn! On the Tracking Boudicca thread, I posted a screenshot from the web cam this morning and now and it is hard to believe that it is not too different parts of the world! What a bummer! Why does it always seem to change for the worst so quickly and is not half as fast to revert back the other way?

As you say Jim, sod's law!!! But most annoying!

Fortunately we arrived at Nordkapp just before the cloud completely covered! Got a few pics and then went into the visitor centre lucky we did it this way as when we came out you could barely see anything.

Had a great guided tour.

Tomorrow at sea and cruising Bear Island then Svalbard where we will camp out overnight on hope of seeing a bear :roll:

I just wrote a long post on the Tracking Booudica thread - but I think it has disappeared.

So annoying!! Writing on my phone so can't write it all again

Just to say for now....wonderful day in Svalbard. Weather perfect

Fossil hunting on the glacier tomorrow

Sat in Observatory, with a Bellini. Sun will not set tonight

All is good on the lovely Boudicca

Thanks Hazel, pity about the lost post. :(

There is definitely something magical about sitting having a drink and looking out on the Midnight sun which never sets. :D
