FROM NORWAY TO THE KARA SEA
25
travel all through the summer with their herds of rein
deer over the whole country.
Wc now stood to the northward along this coast
and soon caught sight of a lofty beacon raised on a pro
montory to the north of us. It must have been that
which is marked on the Russian chart at the mouth
of the river Mora Yaga, just north of the promontory
of Mora Sale. But the country is uniformly flat the
whole way, so that it is difficult to know one part from
another.
Here there was rather less open wrater to the north
ward, and as the wind was still westerly, it seemed
doubtful whether wc ought to go on to the north
through the channel along the shore, for if the ice
closed in, it would be awkward for us on this open,
shallow coast. Wc stopped to see how things were
going and let the vessel drift. Meanwhile the Captain
was able at last to have an undisturbed and well
earned sleep ; he had not been out of his clothes
since wc left Norway.
