Of course there are some smaller boats around. This one was leaving the one and only shop on the islands, apart from the one by the ferry. You can of course also drive to this shop, or walk, as I did ;)

I have a 'rapid frame' sequence of these two birds flying off, and have made an animated clip of it - click on the pic :)



Chris de Burgh - Flying

Flying, I thought I'd never learn that flying
I thought I'd spend my whole life trying,
For flying is that ancient art of keeping one foot on the
ground...

Lying, I thought I'd never keep from lying,
I thought I'd lose it all by sighing,
For lying is that ancient art of hiding words that will never be
found

Crying, I thought I'd never stop that crying,
I thought I'd always dream of dying
For crying is that ancient art of weeping rivers into the
ground

Oh Dying, I thought I'd never see that dying,
I thought I'd spend my whole life flying,
For dying is that ancient art of keeping one world turning
round

Sighing, I thought I'd never keep from sighing
I thought I'd always be there crying,
For sighing is that ancient art of breathing sadness all around

And trying, I thought I'd spend my seasons trying,
I thought I could stop myself from lying,
For trying is that ancient art of proving that the world is
round

Oh Flying, oh oh, Lying, oh oh, Crying, oh oh, Sighing, oh oh,
Trying, oh oh, and Dying, oh oh,
For Dying is that ancient art of growing flowers in the ground,
Yes it is...

Here's another clip made with rapid frame or 'burst' photography at 3 frames a second. This is from the stern of the fast ferry from Bergen
