Intrepid Adventurers and Husky Driven Thrill Rides

TSV - 08 July, 2015

Having left our anchorage, Captain Peter set a course for Ny Alesund, where we arrived late in the day. The fjord, and today’s home away from home, was dotted with varying sizes of icebergs expelled from the adjacent glacier. Having moored alongside the concrete quay, a walk was in order….

The fabled, and much sought after, polar bear.

TSV - 07 July, 2015

Northwards! Following the coast in the sunshine, but with choppy sea.

TSV - 03 July, 2015

We set off northwards following the coast in the sunshine but with choppy sea. Had a slightly sticky incident with an ‘exploding’ tin of custard, which Peter found in the storage area, caused by too many tins in too small a space. One yacht seen called Timbuktu heading northwards as…
