Wordless Wednesday - North Cape.

 If you zoom in the details of these monuments is in English on the right hand side in the above photo.
I was asked if I had more details for the sculptures and found this on the Children of the World website,

Children of the World

The “Children of the World” sculpture was started in 1988 when author Simon Flem Devold randomly selected seven children from seven countries – Tanzania, Brazil, USA, Japan, Thailand, Italy and Russia — to visit the North Cape to dream of “Peace on Earth“.

During their seven day visit, each of the 8-to12-year-old children made a clay relief symbolizing friendship, hope, joy and working together. In 1989 the reliefs were enlarged, case in bronze and erected in a semi-circle outside the North Cape Hall.  A “Mother and Child “monument by sculptor Eva Rybakken points toward the seven disks.

Wordless Wednesday

Close to home for a change! Brunel's Royal Albert rail Bridge with the Tamar road bridge behind. 

"Brunel's Royal Albert Bridge over the Tamar from Plymouth to Saltash. Opened in 1859 it was another 100 years before it acquired a neighbour (the Tamar road bridge).

The bridge was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel and is 170 feet high and over 2,000 feet in length."

Wordless Wednesday - Bridges.


The first two photos are approaching Bergen where it usually rains, but we had beautiful weather.

The third and fourth are Stavanger where the sun usually shines, and the only overcast day that we had.

Everything is super expensive in Norway, so I wouldn't even hazard a guess at the price of the chalets on the fjord!
