In the morning around 8 o`clock our ship docked at the smal pier in Leirwick the capital of the Shetland Islands.
The small central city was only a few 100 meters away from the Fram.The weatherforcast for the day was not very good: rain the whole day! But that changed very qiuckly during the morning to a dry and warm day with temperatures of about 12 degrees. Our norwegian guests felt nearly at home.
The Shetland Islands had a great influence by norwegian invaders. The Norwegian language, "the norn" was spoken until the 19th century.
The excursions to the "Jarlshof" and the island of "Mousa" where booth very informativ and well joined by our travellers.
