Monday 17 June

As I walked into town this afternoon, I spotted an unusual boat, tied up along the pontoon by the ferry terminal. I remember that a Norwegian museumship, the Nybakk, was due in this week, and that it was open to visitors. I hailed the crew, who invited me on board. It is a former fishing boat, built in 1961, which has been restored into a museum ship. I had an extensive yarn with one of the crew, before making my way back up to the deck (up a ladder at an angle of 80°) and back to the pontoon. The Nybakk was due to depart for Lerwick on Wednesday.
