July 26 and 27: Back to Tromsø with Hurtigruta

Thursday started with lots of rain and gray clouds, but in the afternoon it cleared up. We visited Kabelvåg and Henningsvær and did some more driving. The highlight of the trip, however, was when we boarde the Hurtigruta, or Coastal Steamer, to go back to Tromsø. We left Svolvær at 10pm and arrived in Tromsø the next day at 2:30pm. The trip was beautiful and it was a gorgeous way of seeing more sights. Plus I love sleeping on boats! The passengers were an interesting mix of lots of nationalities, many slightly on the older side, and local Norwegians going short stretches.

Let's see if the photos can do it justice...

I love the photos; the picture of the town along the water reminds me of how I imagine parts of Maine to be (don't know for sure b/c I've never been ;D).
