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.

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

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.
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!

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.

LOVE - LOVE - LOVE.
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 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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
