Yesterday on my way for a walk on the beach I met a woman, who had been on holiday with her family for 2-3 weeks. She has this beautiful name Daphne. ( I had to read up on Greek mythology when I came home.)
Today it is pouring down with rain, so it is good that you have a solid holiday home / caravan. Have a safe journey on the sometimes narrow roads we have here in Norway, and safe journey back to the Cologne area where you live in Germany.

This is Jackie from London.
She works for a German bank in the city, the financial district of London.
It was her first time in Stavanger (and Norway.)
I asked her how she could describe our city, and she said she found it a slower pace and more relaxed.
Hope you have had a good holiday and take good memories back home with you.

The food festival (GLADMAT) is over for this year.
It has been a popular festival for lots of people.
Here you can see just a bit of the constant flow of people walking along the harbour area during the festival. It was difficult to find a table yesterday, but we managed at the end, and also had a few drinks at different places.

More visitors at the food festival.
They had found a nice place on the side of the harbour, not far away from the concert house, and were enjoying the food, drinks, and happy atmosphere.
The food festival are reckoning that there will be around 250.000 visitors.
Perhaps even more now, since the weather is so good:)

The annual food festival (GLADMAT) is on now, and so far, has had sunshine and really nice summer temperatures.
Walking around looking for something to put out here. I guess what I thought most represented the festival, was not so much the few new things, but mainly all of the happy people who enjoyed the event with friends or family. For some it is a tradition to meet up, have something nice to eat and drink, and just relax in town.
These four Ladies where just doing that!
Having a good time!
"You know, we are all 85 years old" one of them told me.
Happy summer to all of you!!!!
On the blog (www.stavangerdailyphoto.com) you can find more images from the event the last 7-8 years.

This monument (Swords in Rock) was unveiled by king Olav back in 1983.
The swords were a gift from a local bank, and made out of stone by sculptor Fritz Røed.
They are 10 metres tall.
In the year 872 several kings were fighting here at Hafrsfjord, the battle was to unite all small kingdoms into one,
King Harald Fairhair won and became the king.
This is Vilma and Vanessa from Lima (Peru)
Vanessa is living in Norway, with husband and child.
Thanks for being my models V&V.

A small stabbur seen in an allotment garden.
It is quite unusual to see one in a city, so this is one to remember.
Out in the countryside some farms have had these for decades, and in the old days they were used to store food, meat as well as fruit and vegetables. Most did not have windows, and they were built on stilts, so that the floor was raised well above the ground, to prevent pests coming in.
Today many of them have been upgraded and turned in to guest quarters for visitors and tourists.

Isn't she a beauty?
The luxury yacht was just showing her beauty at our harbour today.
One family on holiday.
Look at the images here.
Don't you think that could be a holiday to remember in surroundings like this.
I asked the crew where they were heading, and the Irish guy told me about LYSEFJORD and heading north to ÅLESUND....
So look out for her if you are on the west coast of Norway now.
