A cool, cloudy day, no excursions to join, so Thursday was a mostly quiet day with plenty of time to relax, regroup, get ready to meet Jean Sue's cousin Sharon and friend Chris who join our ship in Trondheim Friday for the last leg to Bergen and the Kvalheim cousins reunion Saturday.
The only event of note was mid-evening when the MS Trollfjord arrived in Rorvik along with another Hurtigruta, MS Polarys. We were met with fireboats streaming water, dozens of small craft lighting smoke flares and launching fireworks and, on the quay, brass bands and about 500 cheering Rorvikians -- all because it was the "birthday" of the coastal steamer service. The mayor even made a speech snd awards were presented to both Hurtigruta captains.
