Just Checking in from Oslo

Dear Readers,

Just wanted to report that I’m back in Oslo, after 2+ spectacular weeks of sailing around the western and northwestern coast of Spitsbergen, Svalbard, in the tall ship Antigua, with a group of wonderful artists, guides, and crew. I have many, many pictures to post and stories to tell, but I’m not home yet, and it’ll be a few days until I get organized. Here are a couple just to start things off :o). I can’t wait to share more!


Kim Mirus, one of my sailing companions and an extraordinary weaver, took this photo. That’s Antigua in the background.

And I took this panorama with my iPhone… it makes the ship look very bendy :o). Click to embiggen.
