Flats with a view.

Less and less people in town.
Quiet days because of Easter, but most shops are open until Wednesday lunchtime.
Many people go to their cottages or travel abroad.

Sunday 29 March 2015


We have plenty of good beaches, sometimes perfect for surfing.

Saturday 28 March 2015

Sporty people.

Some people out training this morning.

Friday 27 March 2015

Quiet in town.

It is going to be quiet in town.
Lots of people already start their Easter Holiday today.
We have lots of snow up in the mountains, but nothing here.
Further south and especially in and around Oslo (The east side of Norway) there is chaos both with air traffic as well as out on the roads.

HaPpY wEEkend!

As you can see we have some nice old brick houses, not all houses are made of wood.
They are very popular and this is a small road very close to the city centre.

Horse riding.

Early evening today.
Great to be out walking on the beach.
We were not alone.

Under the bridge...

These houses are facing the city centre.
Over the bridge and through a tunnel, and you are there.

Easter decorations seen in a shop last week.

Friday 20 March 2015

A good view.

I guess the bird and the people up on the top floor,
had an even better view than me.

If you are in Stavanger, you will notice that this image is not from today.
We have had rain non stop, but hopefully the weekend will be better.

Magasin Blaa.

Another bench, this time inside at Magasin Blaa.

New brilliant ideas today?

I guess there have been brilliant ideas as well as long and serious discussions going on in many cafes and restaurants.....
Here is from a nice place at the Culturehouse.

Moods of Norway.

"Moods of Norway" is a make (and a company name) who advertise themselves with "Happy Clothes for Happy People." They started back in 2003, and have (had) shops in many big cities.
Now they have closed the one in NYC.

In Stavanger they have a shop, and of course they have included the famous tractor, which is
part of their logo.
On the news they said that most of their clothes were sold on sale these days.
I guess many young people go for a different style, and are not willing to pay a fortune for clothes.

Early morning walk.

Lucky people, who have a great view over to the city and all the boats passing.

Big houses out on the small island Sølyst.
(The island is connected to the mainland by the big town bridge , and is part of Stavanger.)

It looked like the famous Obstfelder kept an eye on what was happening around him/the statue today.
Do you want to find out more about him, take a look here.

Sunday afternoon .....

I have just started reading a German book,
It is translated into Norwegian, so that makes it easier.

Do you have a book that you would recommend?

Rain-rain-rain go away...

Rain - rain - rain - go away....

Flowers for the weekend?

Have you remembered to buy flowers for the weekend?

I bought some after I took this image.
Tulips in many colours and some tiny daffodils.
Enjoy your weekend!

Starbucks will be in this building.

I suddenly thought about STARBUCKS when I saw this work going on.
It is a long time since they started to discuss how the cafe should be, and the last thing I heard was that the bank was going to use what used to be the vault, as the place for the famous coffee company.
Time will show.

Sunshine today.

It turned out to be a SUNNY day today.

Art by Torill Sæther Krekke.

The Norwegian Cancer Society (NCS) is a national volunteer organisation, and there are 8 district offices. Yesterday I visited the one here in Stavanger and I saw art by Torill Sæther Krekke.
Sometimes images make me stop. Memories came back in seconds. It was strong.....

The Heliport.

For years I have passed the heliport (next to the airport).
Last week I attended a guided tour.
There was a lot  of building activity going on inside  to make it better and more up to date.
So many people were waiting..... the weather was not good for using the helicopters that day!
Anyway, one thing that caught  my eye was when I saw all these SURVIVAL SUITS.
Many people have to wear them to and from work out on the oil rigs.
Here in Stavanger, which is named "the oil capital," there are
so many people involved in the oil business one way or another.
