Scoresbysound and Denmark Strait

Today we visited the Greenlandic settlement of Scoresbysund. The town was established in 1924 by Ejnar Mikkelsen. Approximately 460 people live in this settlement, most of them Greenlandic. The weather was not the best, low clouds with a few rain drops. During the morning the wind picked up but everyone seemed to be enjouying a stroll on land and to sea all that the town had to offer. For a Sunday morning there was an impressive amount of people out-doors to give us a good day in Scoresbysund. Several puppies were also loose, roaming around trying to get some attention, which was not difficult!
Mid day we lifted anchour for the last time in East Greenland and set a course southbound for the Denmark Strait and Iceland...
