Vacation - 12th June: Lofoten
Å is the last letter in the Norwegian alphabet - and the most southern inhabitated village in the Lofoten. We drove today down the cost to Å and smelled in most of the small fishing villages the dried stockfish. The villages have as accomodation for the fishers during the main season (January to April) small huts - called rorbuer - that are now used as tourist accomodation.
We found in Å a couple of seagulls nesting in strange places.
The view of Reine and the Reinefjord was impressive. In general the steep walls of the lofoten mountains is amazing.
The weather was sunny, we had tea on our veranda.
