Uummannaq and Ukkusisat
What do you need after a huge lunch? No. Not a nap. A hike is the thing. It was a perfect day to scamper over the rocks behind Uummannaq. There were at least 50 people on our hike. Every single person that went was really glad they chose to go. On a day like we had today it is impossible to take a bad photograph. You could trip with your camera in your hand and come up with a great photo! That's how good the weather and scenery were.
50 people from Ukkusisat came on board Fram where they entertained us with folk dancing and singing in the Observation lounge, in fact some of us participated in the square dancing which was really fun!
At 21:00 we hopped into the Polar Cirkle boats and went to explore the village. We were invited into the community centre for coffee and cake.
By the time all was said and done it was 22:30 before everyone was back on the ship.
Whew! A full day but a really great day!
