A walrus is a rare sighting in Kongsfjorden. But today it happened. Kristle was pumping our zodiac boat as we were planning a trip to an island. While she was pushing the last air in, it suddenly started to blow very hard. First thought was that the boat had ruptured. But it was a walrus surfacing in the boat dock next to our boat. Marije was fast with her camera and took this picture, where you can still see part of the gangway to enter our boat. Many people from town came to the harbour but nobody saw it better than our team. The walrus did surface only a few times while travelling further east.
