Viking Ships

Everyone knows about the Vikings.  Those were the people who got in their open boats a thousand years ago and splashed around all over the Atlantic Ocean, burning and pillaging as they went, and colonizing places like Iceland and Greenland.  The Vikings were known as really good boaters. 

So when Lasse and four of his Viking friends from Denmark invited me to go paddling with them in Prince William Sound today, of course I said yes.  Anchorage was cloudy and gray all day (so I heard), but Prince William Sound saw nothing but sunshine.  Sure, it qualified as "cross-training" but it was pretty hard to call it "training" with weather like this.
