…was great… day started off cold about 4c but i proved rapidly until it hit about 14 c.
nanortalik sevices an area larger than NSW, but the whole area onlny has about 2500 people. Nana has about 700 people, including a fish market that was very whiffy, selling whale meat….It was like a tin shed.

It also has a fabulous living museum, someone has done a great job restoring all the old buildings, so lovely, old stone houses plus some made of earth plus a jack up of a summer tent complete with skins , the danish pastries on a teay were a bit of a puzzle.

The town put on a kaffe klutz at the town centre, coffee and cake provided for everyone plus the local choir sang and kids did folk dances. girls wearing seal skin pants….choir almost like throat singers.,.folk dances very similar to gay gordons etc…

Rest of the town was a bit boring but obviously a trading centre…funniest thing, waiting on the tender back to the boat, kids were fishing up bikes from the water, obviously the local sport, steal a bike and throw it in the harbour.
Water was so clear….
Just learnt that the coloured houses represent what profession/service the occupants provide, e.g. yellow for medical…

saw a Scottish couple, with their inflatable/portable kayaks plus tent, planning an expedition. I earwigged a conversation between them and three frenchmen , not sure what they were up to but they were impressively dressed in wet weather gear…

Went back on board for a 4 pm departure, we were going out via Prins christian sound…
Nearly didn’t , a dopey couple got left ashore, so we never left until nearly five…,

The sound was stunning, a very narrow channel in parts, can see why we never went thru on the way south…Formidable mountains of granite either side, impressive icebergs, snow and the odd glacier.
sound is about 80 miles long and luckily it stays light till late…
half way in, there is a settlement of seventy people, god that is isolated….

Although thescenery is wonderful it wouldbe like only seeing fiordland all the time
