Hurtigruten Voyage Day 8

A funny looking island close to Hammerfest. Steep at the farthest end and a rather even slope down to the sea level on this end, shaped like a piece of orange.

In Sørøysundet

A fishing boat passing along the lovely Stjernøya. One of many places where I longed to get ashore, and get up on a hill to enjoy the view. (The fishing boat? There's a small white spot in the middle of the coastline.)

Looking south towards the mainland from Øksfjord

The north of the island Silda.

Sailing towards the peninsula Brynilen

Sailing along Brynilen

A wonderful view from a wonderful voyage!

Say, this must be the town of Skjervøy, mustn't it?
