Temp. -2C

Ooh lah lah!  We came into port at 5pm to a very, very nice harbour.  Surrounding the water were many, very expensive looking Harbour mansions.  This is just my observation, but it definetely looks like a wealthy town.

We only had a very quick port stop here but it was worth just staying on the Observation Deck to look at the harbour.

Firstly we cruised into this narrow straight, but you couldn't see the town yet.  Then we went under the main bridge when the ship proceeded to blow the horns which made me jump because I was literally underneath them.

The bridge was like a gateway to this hidden harbour.  The sky, although dark, was clear.  The water was like glass, extremely still.  There were lights glistening all around.  The shore was quite steep so all the houses would have amazing water views.

I don't know if it would have been impressive in the daylight but at night it seemed very special.
