Evening light.

An evening glimpse from Stavanger.

Have a nice Summer!

Today it is exactly 9 years since I started blogging.
One photo every day.

Monday 18 June 2018


It sounded and looked like the football fever was high in town yesterday evening.

Football fans were out watching the game on big screens.
Here is a glimpse from outside one of the pubs near the harbour area in town.

So who will win the championship this year?

Sunday 17 June 2018

Sunny evening.

It turned out to be a great day.
Sunny evening and with plenty of boats along the guest harbour.

Saturday 16 June 2018

Rain again.

Time to close the windows, and put the wellies on.
Plenty of rain inthe days to come.

This is an image from the first Starbucks that opened in Stavanger.
It is actually inside what used to be a bank.
It is very central, close to the harbour, the old market place as well as the cathedral.

Happy weekend!

A shop for creative people.

A nice old door in to SPØDET, a shop where you can get most things for knitting etc.
They have beautiful buttons and is located close to cafe Sting at Kirkegaten /Valberget.

From Germany.

This is Emma, the little dog, and the couple she lives a happy life together with.
They are from Wuppertal in Germany.
The day that I met them, they had been staying near the beach for the night and had breakfast when I was starting the morning  walk with our dog. We had a chat and I was told that they had already been to the Pulpit Rock and then off to take a look at Stavanger city before heading further north on the west coast.
Nice meeting you, and I will always remember the famous thing you told me about your hometown.

Green city ?

I think Stavanger is environmentally aware and we have plenty of places to put glass, paper, plastic etc. to be recycled.
At the weekends there are more people just throwing things around in the city centre, and some people have the job of tidying up on Sunday mornings after lazy, and sometimes drunk people, who
have been out partying

Looking up.

Looking up, I noticed a flat I had never seen before.

The people living there must have a great view over the city centre.

Thursday 7 June 2018

Great view and tasty food.

A nice place for lunch down at the harbour area.
Great view and tasty food.

Fire alarm.

The fire alarm went off.
Just a test.
People working for the council had to go out and wait until it was ok to go back to work.

Tuesday 5 June 2018

Close to the port.

The Stavanger port office have several of these gifts from ships that have visited our city.

Hop On Hop Off.

Hop On - Hop Off in Stavanger.
As a tourist this might be smart.
( I have used one in Berlin, and that was a good way to explore the city.)

Saturday 2 June 2018

The police.

The police also patrol out on the water.
Looks like a good job to have in the current weather.

Friday 1 June 2018


LENDELUNDEN is a little park area close to "Old Stavanger"
Peaceful and nice.
Well worth a visit.

STAVANGER DAILY PHOTO is also on Facebook.

Mike and Lawrence.

Mike and Lawrence from Devon / England, where out and about in Stavanger today.
They were looking for something special, and I hope they got help from the place I recommended.
Anyway, they are on a cruise ship, and after the stop here they are going to Bergen, Flåm etc.
Lucky guys!

We were in to a discussion about lunch deals in the UK from supermarkets, .... "here we have to take a loan if we are buying something" Mike said with a grin.
But one thing surprised me, they said HA' DET when I had to rush to reach my appointment.
Nice meeting you.
Enjoy your holiday!

A message

Someone must have been either drunk or crazy to spray a message like this; "You have to call her.."
Tagging around town costs a fortune to keep removing.

Wooden chairs.

Wooden chairs, seen at the same place as yesterdays photo.

Friday 25 May 2018

South of Stavanger.

Out walking on the beach, a side path leads to a permanent camping/holiday area, probably a farmers property.
Perhaps a place people go to for the weekend ?
A quiet place, only 30 minutes by car south of the city centre.
Some sort of a caravan club, with common areas. Some had built small cottages as an extension.

Thursday 24 May 2018


The fire brigade do lots of rescue training exercises around the harbour area, so sometimes you can see them in action down here.

Ecological ice cream

Is ecology important for you?

Well, this is a snapshot from a place where you sometimes
can buy Eco ice-cream.

For weeks if not months, we have got news about todays Royal Wedding in Windsor / London.


I don't know if the Norwegian Royals are invited.
But here they are on a PINK college jumper, seen in a window at the shop SEVEN HEAVENS, at the colourful little road Fargegaten / Øvre Holmegate.

Steve and Marion.

STEVE and MARION are visiting Stavanger today.
They are from Boston / Massachusatts / USA.
Now they are lucky to travel around with the cruise ship VIKING SEA.

They told me that they had been on a trip to Voss yesterday, and had a great Constitution Day.

Marion is also a volunteer on the cruise ship, giving lectures on places they are going to visit.
Nice meeting them both.

Thursday 17 May 2018


Today is the Constitution Day here in Norway.
A day to celebrate, perhaps differently, but very often with family and friends.
South of Stavanger I met these three beautiful teenage girls from Sandnes and Verdalen.
They are wearing BUNAD, our National Costume.
The style of bunad's is regional, these are local Rogaland bunad's.

Enjoy the sunny day!

Wednesday 16 May 2018



Most places have decorated in RED - BLUE -WHITE
because of our NATIONAL DAY tomorrow.
This shop is using backpacks.
Quite creative I think.

Tuesday 15 May 2018

New buildings.

There are lots of building activities going on in town.

Nice sunny day today.

It feels great!

Monday 14 May 2018


A luxury yacht at the port.
The American owner of this beautiful yacht is arriving later this week.
I asked one of the people who was busy looking after this nine year old beauty, BATON ROUGE made in the Netherlands .... about a few things, but of course, he was not allowed to give out information.
Well, I hope they will have a really good time in Norway.

Sunday 13 May 2018


I have had a nice tour around the school ship SJØKURS (Normally based in Kristiansand), where 60 young people can start their maritime education.
From time to time they are out on the open sea.
They had just been to Bergen, and this weekend they are visiting Stavanger.
Visitors were allowed onboard with guided tours.
My guide was Jack Hanche, from Horten. I had a nice and interesting tour.
The ship used to be part of the old Hurtigruten, as "Ragnvald Jarl"

American cars cruising around near the harbour area, a few days back when the sun was shining.

Today we have plenty of rain.

A good day to be lazy, also a public holiday ( the Ascension day) and lots of people have made it in to a long weekend by taking Friday off work.

Enjoy your day wherever you are.

RUSS from Sauda.

At the weekend there were thousands of RUSS, young people who celebrated the fact that they have been going to school for 13 years, and are now heading for different paths in life.

Many RUSS from all over the country were celebrating and partying at Kongeparken, so yesterday was the day when they were relaxing before heading back home by plane, cars, busses, ferries etc.

Here is a group of RUSS from Sauda relaxing in the city park.

That is what it is going to be soon again.
