Full fart til Pinse!

As of tomorrow we are officially at full speed through to Pentecost (sounds much ruder in Norwegian – sorry, couldn’t resist).

Speed wise, that’s in direct contrast to this Lithuanian trawlerFull_fart_til_Pinse:

– which today ran aground between Finnsnes and Silsand. Full_fart_til_Pinse_02

The pictures above are from the local paper which less than a week ago used the  whole front page to trumpet that the 100 million krone (10 million pound /  17  million dollar) safety project to widen the shipping channel and improve the navigation lights, was finished ahead of schedule! That was less than a week ago. The work was in response to dozens of accidents in the last decade. Oops.

You can also read the article (in Norwegian) here, and watch an amateur video here.

Thankfully, it’s now been towed free!
