|Anna in Skansebukta|
Next morning the good weather had reached an end, but the boat is large and comfortable, so a bit of rain didn´t bother us. After a late breakfast we followed the fjord into the bottom of Billefjorden and the abandonned settlement of Pyramiden. This used to be a Russian settlement, but it was closed down in 1998 after a huge air-plane crash in 1996 killing 141 people an other factor was the difficult conditions mining the carboniferous coal. Due to the rain and wind we didn´t go ashore in the town, but sailed slowly back to Longyearbyen, watching the landscape and the many birds flying by.
|Thank you for a fantastic week-end|
