Akkarvik in Easter 2011 was gorgeous. It almost made up for 3
years and no visits for me. At the most we were 400 meters (1100 ft)
above sea level, still, it was like high in the mountains. We had all
kinds of weather:
- Storm, giving us power failure for 12-13 hours
- Rainy and windy
- Sunshine like summertime
- Lightly clouded "normal" weather
We had storm on Monday. Arild filmed it and published on
Wind and heavy snowfall, mostly slushlike, caused the power
lines to break down. In Skjervøy/Akkarvik the windy weather made
sure it took a long time to repair it. That's why we have real stoves
in our house.
April 15. it was really black at night. The picture above was
shot at 2 a.m. April 26. I've done nothing but cutting away the edges.
This is how bright it really is at night.
pub (in a village with 9 inhabitants) was visited more than once.
Indoors picture, no flash light... But we had fun.
Right: That boy
dug a tunnel for me.
Left: Weather allowed
us several trips like this. But Easter ended with rain.
Indoors we spend our time playing cards and board games,
making food, relaxing an watching snooker (World Championship in
Sheffield ending May 2. 2011).
