My Holiday Photos.

We love to cruise and this will show our travels. Of course there will also be other photos of non cruise holidays and anything else that takes my fancy. All photos can be clicked to enlarge.

Wordless Wednesday. Olden, Norway.

I used to do a Wordless Wednesday post most weeks for my boys, then after they both left I started my Memories for them on their blog. I often thought about doing the odd Wordless post now and again but it didn't feel right to do it there as I only post on Fridays with their Flashback memories.
Then I had my light bulb moment and thought about my very under used Holiday Photos blog, so this is my first Wordless Wednesday here.

Norwegian Fjords June 2015 - Alesund.

After leaving the Lofoten Islands we had a day at sea heading south again. Our next port was Alesund.
Fjellstua viewpoint.

Alesund harbour.

The ship docks right in the town which makes it very convenient to visit.
We saw there was an open top bus doing a tour of the area so we decided to get on.
The following are photos taken from the top of the bus.

The sky was blue and the fjord even bluer, but I can assure you that upstairs on that open air bus, we were freezing!

The beautiful Fjellstua viewpoint to looking down on Alesund and the fjord.

The fisher boy statue in Pharmacy Square. The brown building is the Art Nouveau Centre where visitors can learn more about the great fire when most of the town was burnt and since rebuilt.

Alesund church which was built in 1909 to replace the original church which was destroyed in the Great Town Fire of 1904.

The yellow building in the background which looks like a castle is actually a school!

So that's it for our fjords cruise during the summer solstice.
It was a strange feeling to go outside at night and see the sun still shining. Now I want to go back in the winter months to see the Northern Lights!
