Codstock and custard

Posted in : Bluejay

8 June 2019 Henningsvaer day.  Codstock and Custard.

There is plenty to do in Henningsvaer, which this weekend was dominated by the Codstock Festival…. three days of fish and music plus lots of campervans and drunken festival goers.  More on that later.  So a day of walking, looking around the photography gallery and art gallery, a climb up Festvagind (541m…. great views of the Henningsvaer archipelago from the top including distant and pointless? fireworks.).  The afternoon was spent nav planning and in the evening, we ventured out to Henningsvaer. Sadly, the Youth Hostel was overflowing so we couldn’t try the sauna, so ended up in the climbers bar.  A word of advice…. don’t moor up alongside a ‘Codstock’ bar playing blues and Irish music in your motor cruiser and start playing Abba’s Greatest Hits.  Not unless you want BBQ brushes, glasses and bottles thrown at you.  We also met Bjorn from Henningsvaer, who had the biggest fists and firmest handshake I’ve ever come across.  Lovely chap but wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of him.
