March 27: Bugøynes evening
In the evening we took sauna.
Golden sun on its ideal surface: brick.
On the way to the sauna, civil twilight.
"The Sauna of the Sea of Ice," this means literally, i.e. the Arctic Ocean Sauna. As you can see, the sauna points straight out to the ocean; it's a totally direct sequence: sauna, front room, porch, steps, beach, sea.
To cool off, we dipped into the sea. It could be said that the actual immersion in the Arctic Ocean was our ultimate destination on the trip and that everything after that was homeward bound. The snow cover was very insubstantial, luckily, so it was easy to get to the water.
The front door of the sauna, from inside. Very humid.
Getting dusky. Also.
The clearest twilight.
Street light taking over.
Up toward the rocks.
Also rather amazing was that the new moon was setting in the west at that point. It was so slim as to be almost invisible. The camera didn't focus, unfortunately, but you can see the moon just a bit between the two middle power lines, to the left of the chimney and antenna, near the center of the photograph.
Up toward the rocks. Also.
Crab dindin! Very tasty.
This egg was weird. It tasted fine, though.
Later on, the best northern lights we saw the whole time.
Their shape shifted constantly, gradually but quite noticeably.
