During the early afternoon I tried to make some QSOs, I.e. trying to do some radio connections. This time I happened to have very good conditions for radio connections in the 17 and 20 meter short wave radio bands both to central and south Europe as well as to Canada and the United States.
This concluded my stay on Disko Island. In the evening I took the boat back to Ilulissat. The course of the boat follows the coast of Disko Island for about 50 km until it turns southeast to Ilulissat. The scenery I was blessed to experience in all depths and widths on this boat trip is absolutely magnificent, that is to the north the cliffs of Disko Island characterized by their obvious volcanic origin and every now and then interrupted by the white colors of glacier tongues finding their ways down the islands central mountain range, the totally calm sea with icebergs of very different sizes, unique shapes, the amazingly fabulous shades of blue that blend with the red and orange colours of the sun setting.
The boat trip usually takes about 4 hours, unless, like it happened on this journey, the captain encounters a whale and wants to offer a particular good service to its customers that are mostly tourists anyway. Locals go by their own boats. This particular good customer service was in encountering and following resulting in more or less hunting a whale until as it seemed it was deterred enough to leave. This particular good customer service finally resulted in an arrival 30 minutes behind schedule which was indeed no matter of concern to any of the passengers.
