Hennes, Vesterålen

I am in Hennes.  Many Thanks to Einar Lundblad for taking the pictures in this post!


According to Wikipedia, “Hennes is a small village in the municipality of Hadsel in Nordland county, Norway. It is located just west of Kaljord along the Hadselfjorden on the island of Hinnøya, about 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) east of Stokmarknes. The village is home to Innlandet Church, which serves the eastern part of the municipality.”

Hennes appears to be in or near the Lofoton island chain. If you Google Lofoten, you will see some of the most beautiful pictures you have ever seen. I have never been to Norway, but Lofoten has always been on my list of Norweian places to visit!

Here is just one Lofoten picture taken from the internet:

Living near the ocean like this must be exciting!



I downloaded this picture of Hennes from the internet. Just look at that mountain snow. I promise that if I ever get to Lofoten, I will drive to Hennes. Who knows, maybe I can say hello to Einar!
