Yesterday a chance encounter on a boat docked in Skags – we took portraits of the sailors for Guido to paint into murals in town, the mayor asked if we wanted to go on board for the final leg of the trip. Our destination was Siglufjord, a narrow and small fjord on the north coast of Iceland. It was about a 9 1/2 hour voyage…. sweet baby Jesus.
Huge seas (10 ft, 12 ft??), no sleep, one very sick cabin mate and a bit of time spent flying off our bench beds to floor. Drenched by huge wave outside while boat almost vertical… might have been some killer whale wrestling. A great adventure with fellow salty sea dogs Guido and Linda.
I was thankful to see dry land. Now to bed.
