From left to right:  First there is the ferry from Andenes to Gryllefjord.  Then there is a short drive to Hamn.  Finally, my route to return to Tromso the next day.

After sunset, some of the boats moored in the Hamn marina.

However, the next morning I woke up with a swollen leg and greatly reduced mobility.  I hobbled to the office and they pointed me to the nearest doctor available in a nearby town, which must have been Finnsnes.  The doctor performed a test which indicated that I had Deep Vein Thrombosis.  This is a serious condition that can produce a blood that causes a fatal embolism in the brain.  However the test was not conclusive and she booked an ultrasound for me at Tromso Hospital.  I was instructed to travel straight there by the highway and not stop to take any photographs.  When I got to the hospital I was whisked through with amazing speed and efficiency and fortunately I did not have deep vein thrombosis.  Instead, I had a Baker’s Cyst, a build-up of fluid behind the knee that would go away by itself in time.   In the meantime, my mobility was somewhat restricted.  I suspect it was due to pushing myself to far and too many consecutive hours spent on aeroplane or car seats.  Later on that day, I was on the plane, on my way to Spitsbergen.

In many ways I don’t think I did Lofoten justice.  Due to misadventure, I lost two and a half days out of five and a half, and had to drive past some wonderful vistas and light due to lack of time.  More than five and a half days would have been good as well.  At least was able to continue with my journey.

Nusfjord to Andenes

Nusfjord to Andenes, Lofoten Islands. Day 35. 2nd August 2013.

Architecture, Boats, History, Landscape, Lofoten Islands, Norway, Nusfjord, Photography, seascape, Travel

This was a day with another long drive, this time to catch a ferry.  I cannot be sure where most of these images are because my camera GPS was no longer working by this stage.  I left Nusfjord at 9:20am.  The first image is at 10:55am; probably somewhere around Svolvaer.

This is my route for the day, at least as far as catching the Andenes-Gryllefjord ferry.  Click on it for a larger image if you want to read the place names.

12:15pm.  Somewhere before Sortland, I think.  Perhaps looking across the small lake of Langvatnet, though you won’t see that name on the map above..

12:25pm for this and the next four images.  Somewhere a little way south of Sortland, I would think.

12:40pm for this and the next image.  I think it must be Sortland.  The ship is called Polar Sirkel. I discovered while trying to identify the location of this image that it changed its name to Polaris later that month.

12:25pm and 12:35pm for the next image.  Perhaps they are at the south of the island of Andøya, looking back towards the south at the island of Hinnøya.

Both images are stitched panoramas and if you click on them they go to a larger-than-usual web image.
