Sørøya is Norway's 4th largest island.
In 1944/45 1100 people spent the winter in hiding places on the island, seeing their houses burnt and their cattle slaughtered by the Nazis.
In norwegian they call it frostrøyk- arctic steam fog. It was one of the coldest days up there where old temperature records were broken. At night we heard the crew removing ice from the ship- warnings had been given out for all vessels. In the morning there was frozen seawater on all decks - no wonder with force 8-9 winds;-)
I have not spent much time on the ocean cruising ships (well - I am afraid, I am a bit sea sick... did I tell you I "fed" whales on the Whale safari in Andenes?) - so I have not seen this before over the sea water surface, but I like fogs and mists rolling over rivers and ponds surface. :)
The Barents sea is notoriously stormy and some of the other open stretches of sea also have a reputation... I could hear retching noises from the neighbouring cabins on both sides, so this definitely is not for you:-(
NICE! Regards from Minsk. zhsv
