ROADWORK........ takes time.

A German made beauty at the harbour.

This huge private yacht, also seen in yesterdays image, has been built in Germany.
The owner lives in the Middle East.
Luxury and beautiful design!
(Including swimming pool, beauty saloon and spa, space for a helicopter pad etc.)

Why it was in Stavanger is unknown, but the newspapers are referring to EU regulations, and saying that if it goes to a harbour outside EU, get the papers stamped, the owner can than get the VAT back.
In this case it would be around 190 million

Safe journey "AMADEA"!

Else and Arne (Sørlie) were out on their bicycles today.
As some of you already know, I am always happy to meet happy people wearing happy colours!
We have a nice sunny day today!
 It feels good with a bit of warmth and spring in the air.

PS. The yacht did not belong to the couple.
More about it tomorrow.

Air traffic down 6,4 %

The number of planes to and from Stavanger Airport is still going down dramatically!

There are several reasons for that, not only that people have become more concerned about the environment. More meetings are held without travelling, and companies in the area are cutting down on travel expenses as well as the number of employees

More and more people have to commute to find good work elsewhere.
The oil business is no longer what it used to be.

So those who are commuting, are at least keeping people in work at the airport.
Sad that several direct routes out to European cities have stopped.

"Det dobbelte"

Two Danish artists Lotte Dahlgaard and Ann Schmidt - Christensen have used different technics to create these  outfits.
Seen same place as yesterday's posting.

Out at Hå.

A sunny day that reminded us about spring today.
After a long walk we went south to Hå Gamle Prestegård, an art and culture place where they had a new exhibition. Work by Karina Presttun and Kristina D. Aas.
Portraits weaved on textile.

The sign "TILFLUKTSROM" means shelter.

I guess that we have several shelters around in the city.
So in case of a war, -  that is where to go.

Well, in normal daily life, this is also the door that leads down to a big parking area.

Norwegian Outlet Stavanger.

NORWEGIAN OUTLET STAVANGER ( at Ålgård) is based outside the city.
It is a fairly "new" place, with lots of nice shops, the prices are usually lower than in other shops.
This is from my favourite shoe shop (Lille Vinkel Sko)
Nice service minded people working there.
This is Jessica.

I'll be back :-)

Sunday 12 March 2017

Sunday walks.

No matter what the weather is like. Sundays are often used for WALKS in the city or out in the countryside like here.
 It is probably the same all over the world?

Saturday 11 March 2017

RED (and BLUE) in the weeks to come.

When I saw this van / car I thought about all the RED (and BLUE) cars that will be used for RUSS (those who are finishing school at the age of 18 or 19 and celebrating in big style just before their exams.)
There will be plenty of them out on the roads in the weeks to come.

If you think it is cheap parking in Stavanger, you are wrong.
I thought it was free parking for handicapped, but NOT here.

Another mural....

Another mural that I discovered not long ago.
There have been discussions in the papers if we have too much street art around in town.
Do you have an opinion about it?

Sunday 5 March 2017

The morning after the storm.

Last night we had a STORM again!
I don't know who these traffic signs were meant for, but perhaps it was the storm that turned them around?

These flats are at the area Madla, about 10-15 min. drive from the city centre of Stavanger.
