Ordgar travelled North to join the crew of a Viking longboat.
On the calm waters, we each gripped the heavy oars and pulled the graceful longboat across the reflected sky.
With tired smiles on our sun-baked faces, we drank ale with new friends long into the night.
The following day was equally calm and not a ripple disturbed the water.
Our backs and arms strained under the weight of this fine vessel, when finally our prayers were answered.
The heavy woolen sail snapped and billowed and the boat surged forward, exhilarating the hearts of all those aboard.
A predator upon the water, with teeth of sharpened steel, hunting its prey, silent and sleek.
