Jan fishing again
No catch this time.
Then wind was still whipping crazy with whitecaps and vapor coming off the bay. Jan had to make alternate plans for us to get to Qaqortoq. The original plan was for a boat to pick us up in Igaliku and transport us to Quqortoq, stopping to see a church ruin. But the wind dictated we weren't going to do that. Plan #2 is to go up & over the ridge by the same route we had walked previously and catch a boat there. The boat ride would take longer, but would be safer. After lots of discussion they decided to give us 6 and a German couple a ride to the other boat dock, and transport our luggage.
We met the boat at about 1:45 p.m., and took a fun, bumpy ride to Qaqortoq, which took a little less than 2 hours. We went by a bunch of icebergs on the way. The conditions were better in that fjord for transport.
After we checked in our hotel we had a walking tour around town. We tried to go to a Thai restaurant for dinner, but they had reservations and no room for us. We ate at the cafe in
the hotel. I had lasagna which was more like the Shepherd's pie my Mom used to make.
Tomorrow we board a ship for an overnight trip to Nuuk. I don't know what the wifi situation will be on the boat, so may take a few days to post again.
