Nordkapp

This is the North Cape.  This is where you can see the midnight sun in summer and perhaps the northern lights in winter.  It's well north of the arctic circle.
We continue to sail towards Honningsvåg
where Marco Polo is moored at the pier
Last time we visited,  it was blowing a blizzard and you could hardly stand upright.  This time it is still windy and the sun is shining.  Many passengers went off on excursions to the North Cape but we decided to stroll around town and also find ourselves a king crab salad... you can't visit Honningsvåg and not eat king crab, or so I'm told.
