Voyage of the Vikings

July - August, 2013

Prins Christian Sund

August 10 - Weather: Alternating between sunny and cloudy, high temp in upper 40s (turned clocks back 1 hour last night)

This morning we went to the lecture called The Wonder of the Great White City about the Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893.  After trivia at 2:30, Barbara went to a talk called "Greenland - The Land and the People." Judy, Ilan, Dahlia and the two of us dined together tonight.  We were enjoying our wiener schnitzel as the ship passed beautiful glaciers and icebergs.  The light kept changing, and around 6:45 we were in a channel called the Prins Christian Sund.  Ships hopefully can pass through the length of the sound, which is 36 miles long, but the ice and time of day meant we could go just a short way into it.  The width of the channel is only 1,300 feet, and the mountains are about 5,000 feet high.  We enjoyed the incredible scenery and were glad we were able to see as much as we did.
