Day 10 – The Journey – Jan. 9, 2019

Day 10 was a saucy little minx.  I managed to row 6K meters straight, no rest (personal best)!  First time ever!  I even felt like I could go further!

Then, technology struck.

If you ever get a chance to watch Parts Unknown at, like, full speed video and 1/4 speed audio, in a dark and cool garage at around midnight or later….do it.

Unless you are trying to row.

Due to a technical glitch between my Google Chromecast and my Netflix app, I had to break up the potential 12K straight session to get the Netflix back to functionality.

I almost blamed this failure on a roaming wild pack of aardvarks, but I’m not even sure if they roam in packs.  My hunch is that they are a coven of aardvarks.

Here are my pics from Day 10.

This was the route I took for Day 10, from an unnamed, rocky island, near to the island of Verdens Ende (World’s End), to the island of Martaholmen.

This is a slide show of the close-ups I took of the route I travelled on Day 10, 6 pictures in total.

day 10 end
This was my ending point for Day 10, the island of Martaholmen.  The island was named after a sailboat that is wrecked there, evidently.  I stopped this leg on a wide beach in a bit of a protected harbor area, across from a small rocky island with some form of house on it.  Hope the locals are nice!

At the end of Day 10, I have travelled the following measures:

Distance:  120,256 meters

Time:  9 hours, 32 minutes, and 53.4 seconds

Day 10 had me travelling to a small island of Martaholmen, which was apparently named after a sailboat that is wrecked there.  The little beach area that would make a great landing area, seemed inviting enough, sot hat is where I stopped the journey at the end of Day 10.  I am working down the remainder of the Norwegian coastline until I can’t stay within site of land any longer.  At that point, it will be time to push off, plotting my course for England!
