FAREWELL TO MAGIC ENGHOLM AND THE DOGS
Today we head north to Alta as our final driving destination. We are sad to be leaving Engholm Lodge and the poochies. However, the dogs are also packing off to move to the lake and enjoy swimming and playing and escaping the mosquitos.
I'm Sam McGee from Tennessee where the cotton blooms and grows
Why I left my home in the South to roam in the North God only knowsIt was always cold but the land of gold seems to hold me like a spellThough I often say in my homey way I'd sooner live in hell."
The Road to Alta
In Kautokeino is a large silver artisans' (18 designers) design studio. Now I mean to tell you this is in the middle of nowhere Finnmarken. Here is this beautiful facility with cars parked everywhere (we saw none on the road to there). Marvelous design items, including loads of great silver jewels. Sami Joik singing was being played in the entire facility. Smashing!
We have a "sort of" view looking out onto the construction site of the Northern Lights Cathedral of Alta. Tomorrow we say a fond farewell to the others, Inger and Vikki, as we split and go our separate ways.
