There are beautiful places to see, even like here from the bus window on the way from the airport in to the city centre.
This is Hafrsfjord, a place that has an important role in Norwegian history.
The "Battle of Hafrsfjord" is famous and took place here.

Heyrði þú í Hafrsfirði, Did you hear in Hafrsfjord
hvé hizug barðisk how hard they fought
konungr enn kynstóri the high born king
við Kjötva enn auðlagða; against Kjotve the Rich.
knerrir kómu austan, ships came from the east
kapps of lystir, craving battle,
með gínöndum höfðum with gaping heads
ok gröfnum tinglum. and prows sculpted.

Looks an awful lot like Clontarf Bay in Dublin, a very important place in Irish history. If I remember well, the last Viking raiders were defeated there. Dublin is a viking name, by the way, Dubh Lynn.
Is the building on the jetty protecting something?

I am wondering what is being protected with the roof at the end of the jetty. Great shot from a bus. Diane

What welcoming sight for people. Looks as if fairy-tales can happen there every moment.
