The captain came on the PA to give a weather forecast, and predicted both rain from above, and heavy rain. Presumably heavy rain doesn't come from above?

Any road up, it was a fairly choppy crossing and a (Danish?) landlubber came to lie down near where we were sitting, and then proceeded to vom into several bags which he lined up on the floor. Classy. Mags wisely hid under his coat:

With the major deadlines (i.e. the ferries we'd already paid for) now met, we decided a somewhat more relaxed day was in order and rather than pressing on north, we decided to stick around and see some of Kristiansand. Not sure who this guy is but he's managing to stay dignified in spite of the wildlife's efforts:

We set up camp at Rolighelden campsite (58.147358N, 8.030694E was our plot). I was slightly concerned when approaching the site as you have to go through a somewhat crappy boat yard to get there, but it's actually very charming and has a nice little beach / coastal walk:
