Norway Day Six: Honningsvag: A Windy Walk Along The Ocean And A Visit To North Cape Museum.
I once again awoke around 8 a.m. on Tuesday morning in Honningsvag. I did not sleep much. I was having difficulty adjusting to the 24 hours of light. It was cloudy, windy with snow flurries in the air. The temperature was 33 degrees. I was glad I brought some winter gear with me. I quickly dressed and was off for a hike to the small fishing village of Nordvagen.
The road hugged the shore of the Porsnager Fjord, the fourth longest in Norway and an arm of the cold northern Barents Sea.
Unfortunately it was too narrow to allow me to walk on the coast and I had to walk on the side of the road beneath the tall cliffs of the island. Many seagulls soared overhead. I am guessing they were nesting high above on the tops of the cliffs.
It was cold and windy and I was pelted with an occasional rain or snow shower as I walked on the Norwegian coast As I came around a curve in the highway I noticed the road entered a tunnel in the distance.
I was also to experience this sea eagle being attacked by these two crows. I sure wish it were warmer and I had more time to look for the wildlife of this arctic region. Here is a link to more photographs of the birds I saw on my hike. Norway Day Six: Morning walk birds. June 5 2018.
It was a long cold walk back but I made it in time for a hearty breakfast, a shower and was soon off to visit the North Cape Museum. Here is a link to some more photographs from my hike to Nordvagen. Norway Day Six: Honningsvag Morning walk June 5 2018.
After breakfast I walked the short distance, once again in a heavy, cold rain to the North Cape Museum .
I spent an informative hour in the museum but had to leave for my trip to the North Cape. Here is a link to some more photographs from my visit to the museum. Norway Day Six: North Cape Museum. June 5 2018.
