Day 17 … Thought we might get another view of the glacier this morning but it wasn’t to be. Raining and low cloud so no views at all sadly. We continued on down the coastal highway through constant rain until we got to our first ferry, only a 10 minute crossing.
The road was still a nice drive, every now and then we got glimpses of our potential views but then they disappeared again. We soon reached our second ferry, an hour this time, so we got out of the Bunnybus and went up into the ship. Small but smart with a little cafe. £8 for a ham and cheese bun!
We popped out onto the back deck as we passed the Arctic Circle once more

Set off south again until our 3rd ferry of the day. 25 minutes. Still raining.
By this time we realised we were just missing all the scenery so decided to find an overnight stop before ferry number 4, have some tea and hope the weather would improve.
We drove over what is known as a very picturesque bridge, Helgeland, but today it didn’t look it’s best
As we checked out a couple of spots the clouds started to break up and once we found a nice little parking place (Fylkesvei, Offersøya towards Tjotta Island) right at the tip of the island the sun began to appear.
There were 2 beaches to choose from so the pups had a lovely run and swim
The evening just continued to improve. Hope it bodes well for tomorrow
The view from our door, no one else around.
