Strømvik Bad.

All the smoke that drifted slowly over parts of Stavanger today was from this controlled fire.
Next year the old building would have been 100 years old!!
Originally a public baths, STRØMVIK BAD.
The council made the decision, and this old building ended up as a training exercise for the local fire brigade. The decision to destroy this old building has been very controversial and sparked some very heated arguments.

Some people have better views than others.

I always look at doors and windows, and if you follow my blog, you will find more after "labels."

I have told you that we still have some farmland here in the region of Stavanger.
This image is taken very close to the University area, and the Botanical Garden.
It is only 10-15 minutes by car in to the city centre.
I guess most students do not have a view similar to this:)

The tunnel at Auglend.

Yesterday afternoon there was yet another accident in the tunnel at Auglend.
Many people were stuck in a queue for quite some time!
A trailer collided with the tunnel roof.
This image is taken late in the evening, when they were fixing the damage.
Luckily there was no severe damage to people or cars.

Roya Denise.

Today we had a nice summers day!

I met a very feminine and beautiful young student, Roya Denise, in the bookshop.
She told me that she was starting her second year as a sociology student.
Her mother is Norwegian and her father is from Iran, but unfortunately she said, she did not speak Farsi. Later she will probably take part in her field work abroad, like most students do as part of their studies.

Zac and Trine.

Have you ever heard about Rabbit / Bunny Jumping?
Not me.
I knew they could jump, but I had never seen them in a competition before.

(Unfortunately I did not have my big camera with me, so the action shots did not turn out very well.)

But I met some enthusiasts, - with cute rabbits!!

This is Trine Lofthus from Haugesund (north of Stavanger) who told me about Zac, her second rabbit.

She also told me about  the FB page

Take a look, it is interesting and has lots of nice rabbit images.

The thunder and rain started just after I took this image.

Warm and rainy Sunday here in Stavanger!:(

Hope Zac and friends are doing well!
