not at the pier beside the airport. The passengers going on excursions
joined the waiting buses and left for a variety of destinations.
After making plans to have some post delivered- ready for our March
visit and meeting with the dog sled team, we chatted with the guides
about the various languages spoken in this part of the world.
Being Sunday, there are no shops open in Alta although several of us
headed towards the town centre on the shuttle buses to have a look
round. I wanted to take photographs to compare with the ones taken
during our 2 visits in 2012.
After a quick lunch, knowing that we're going on an excursion tomorrow,
I wanted to take a few photographs from Boudicca's decks. We had some
surprise visitors- 4 sea otters. Bold Mr Otter decided to come and
investigate us so a few passengers on the aft deck enjoyed his swimming
The light is as good as I've seen it in Alta so we're hoping for a
spectacular sunset and, hopefully, an aurora.
