I got off the ship in Flaam, a little tucked away at the end of a Norwegian fjord, almost surrounded by mountains. Went for a walk. And when we left, sat outside and enjoyed the view - mountains rising either side of the fjord, some still with some unmelted snow, spectacular scenery. In the late evening sat in the panoramic bar and watched the Sun go down. That may not seem like an evening's occupation, but sunsets take a long time in Norway, even in the southern part. Sunset was just after midnight, so I suppose we saw the "midnight Sun" - or would have, except that by then it was being filtered through some low cloud.
