2018 HAL Voyage of the Vikings
Wednesday, July 25, 2018
Once again, the weather conditions have forced a cancellation of our plans. Our port call in Paamiut, Greenland has been cancelled due to heavy winds and strong currents. We are actually sitting here, right off the coast of Greenland, but unable to go ashore. I can only show you what it looks like from the water:
It’s a grey,cold, windy day in Greenland!
We are sailing PAST our anchor point at Paamiut, Greenland. The wind is 40 knots and the current too strong for tender operations. We have cancelled this port-of-call.
You can barely see it from the anchor point, but Paamiut is right out there.
View of the Greenland coastline from the shelter of a ship’s doorway. The temperature is 43 degrees with a brisk wind!
It is never good to take photos thru a ship’s salt-marked windows!
Another view of the Greenland coastline.
This is certainly rugged terrain.
This building is big enough to be a hotel. We’ll not know ’til we come back to Paamiut, Greenland someday!
Just imagine how beautiful it must be in bright sunshine!
This boat seems to be moving so it’s not a wreck. But it sure could use a coat of paint!
This appears to be harbor operations of some kind.
And we are sailing past Paamiut, Greenland
You can just see little pieces of town in the background.
We’ll try to call at Qaqortoq, Greenland tomorrow. We’ve all got our fingers crossed!!!
And a mimi iceberg waves us off!
We will hope for better luck tomorrow in Qaqortoq, Greenland!
