So instead we listened to recordings, and enjoyed the clear and calm autumn air for a 6 km run to the lighthouse.
While we cope quite well on making our own dinners, once every expedition we have a "chef's day off" and eat at Kongsfjord Gjestehus. The menu was secret to us. It was also a secret (to some) that OJ's wife Lise and Arnstein's wife Heidi would be there when we arrived... So needless to say, it was a highly successful evening.
Heidi and Lise will be here until departure on Sunday morning.
Perfect weather with clear skies and almost dead calm, 2-3 Celsius. Towards the evening a bit cloudy and a little rain - but when writing this two hours before sunrise on Saturday morning, it's another starry starry sky. Maybe the lack of aurora is a sign of better days. Predicted gale force winds today, so we'll see.
