Unfortunately, the weather still didn't fully cooperate to enable us to see the tops of the famous Seven Sisters mountain range when we passed by them in the early afternoon. More fortuitously though, we were indeed able to see the natural phenomena identified in the ship's program notes as the (visual) highlight of the day: Torghatten, the hat-shaped mountain and its hole which supposedly was the result of an arrow going through it. So went a Norwegian legend recounted in a short video shown shortly before we sailed around -- not just past -- the granite mountain on Torget Island! ;b
Well, hello there beautifully bright blue skies!
Steaming away from Nesna, an old trading post with still
just 1,000 inhabitants that the ship only briefly stopped at
Like in gray Trondheim the previous Sunday, there weren't
many people out on the main streets of Brønnøysund
despite the weather being quite a bit nicer that day!
by nature's grandeur and beauty!"
Behold the granite behemoth that is Torghatten!
"What's the big deal about the hole?" I hear you ask
Now, then, ain't that a cool sight? ;b
And as a bonus, it was also nice to see the sunlight
create silvery reflections on the water :)
