Departing Alta... perhaps?

Yesterday afternoon brought our departure from Alta. A local fishing boat acting as tug, the wind proved too strong and kept
blowing us back against the dock. Very sensibly, they decided that the risk to both the crew on the fishing boat and to the Marco
Polo itself were too great and we should wait for a tug to arrive.

While waiting, the wind dropped and with all passengers aboard, we were able to depart under our own power, all the passengers
taking an oar each.

It now looks as though Alesund has been dropped from our schedule and we're heading straight for Bergen.
