Harstad

A change of plan was announced last night because the weather threatened to severely disrupt the tender boats in the Lofoten
Islands.

Our new destination became Harstad and we sailed in this morning, not long after dawn. It has been a fantastic alternative port
of call with the sun shining and it staying dry.

We've got to congratulate the crew and cruise staff on Marco Polo for their quick thinking in choosing such an unusual port for our
visit. They also managed to arrange an excursion for those who wished. We remain here for the afternoon and early evening,
anchored in the bright sunshine and hopefully with a good sunset over the snow covered hills.

Back to the normal schedule tomorrow.
