Our next two days we will spend at sea. The Denmark Strait between Island and Greenland can be very rough, but it looks like that we are travelling with lots of angels as the sea is totally smooth.There is nearly no wind and only a little bit of swell. Best weather conditions for whale watching as you can see nearly all movements at the sea surface.
We are on the same route like Erik the Red more than 1000 years ago. But times have changed. He went over the Denmark Strait in open rowing boats; we have our wonderful ship FRAM. We can be relax, our officers on the bridge are doing a wonderful job for us, we have not even to think about it. After only one day we feel like home on board. During the night most of us will sleep again very well. The soft movement of the vessel gives us the feeling of sleeping like a baby in a cradle. Let’s see what kind of surprises the next day will bring to us.
