Ours had the same hight.

Two bridges near Stavanger and those beautiful fjords in the background.

Your photos today and in your last post really show off the beauty of Norway. What a pretty town! The cruise ships really dwarf the houses! Thanks for sharing Riet!

Mijn hemel lieve Rietje, wat
een enorme schepen zijn dat toch.
Als je de verhoudingen met de
huizen er omheen bekijkt is het gewoon een compleet dorp, ongelooflijk.

Mooi ook die pittoreske straatjes
in de oude binnenstad, wat een
sfeertje zeg. Ben er nog nooit
geweest maar heet ziet er zeer
verleidelijk uit allemaal.

Fijn weekend verder,

Veel liefs,

Mooie serie, Riet.

Hello Maam Riet,

Heavenly beautiful. Scandinavian beauty.

I can live in the area, during summer but on long winter days? Never...

Hope you had an enjoyable cruisin.

Have a great SSS w/end.

There is such a charm about Stavanger - the contrast of the tall ship against the town is outstanding. It appears that the village looks as if it did 100+ years ago, the cobblestone pathways built so well a long time ago rising steeply to the summit. Such beauty!

I love the red house, and the red roof mixed in with so many white homes against the lush landscape-I would love to live there-looks perfect!

More gorgeousness! I cannot take my eyes off the little cobblestone street and the charming red and white houses on the water! So very quaint!

Wonderful to see this.

Juliëtte said...

Prachtige foto's weer, Riet!
Wat een enorme schepen zijn dat!
Het zijn bijna drijvende steden.

Beautiful photography of a lovely country ~ wish I had seen more of it ~ back pain sent me home early ~ Happy Week to you ^_^

Lorrie said...

These are lovely photos, Riet. The one with the street going up and houses on either side showed a real contrast to scenes in other parts of Europe where the houses are stone instead of white painted wood.
Cruise ships have been coming into port in our town lately, too. They are enormous!

Mary Howell Cromer said...

Such a beautiful place Riet and I am very much enjoying this journey with you in your shares from Norway~

Debra @ Homespun said...

I would like to live there in the summer..not so sure about winter there! :)

That ship is HUGE. what pretty scenery and gorgeous villages.

Veronica Roth said...

Hi Riet. Those cruise ships are so huge! I see them from a distance across the bay, anchored next to the tall downtown skyscrapers here in Vancouver so I don't appreciate just how huge they actually are. It's like a floating city, isn't it. Thank you for showing such lovely photos of Norway. Yes, it would be nice to live there for a while. :)

Patti said...

Such a pretty village that you've shown us!

I'm a bit Norwegian and would love to visit someday.

Barb said...

Postcard perfect! Love that little cove with the homes.

Millie said...

These are beautiful scenes. Love all the water.

I can't post with my open ID the way your comments are set up (stupid Blogger) because it says the url is missing, but it isn't. It will let me use the open ID if comments are embedded.

Norway looks so beautiful and peaceful, Riet! Lovely photos.

Art and Sand said...

I am visiting via Mosaic Monday. When I saw your first photo, I assumed it was Holland because of your blog title, but my first thought was that it looked more like Norway. And then, I read and saw that I was correct. Thanks for bringing back some wonderful memories of a visit to family in Boda.

June said...

That ship is HUGE! I can't even imagine what it would be like to be on it. I love all the photos you have taken and shared of your amazing trip dear Riet! I have enjoyed seeing Norway through your lens!
much love...

Beppan said...

Norway is indeed a fantastic country. And your photos shows it so good!

Luna Miranda said...

Stewart M said...

When it first pooped up I thought that the ship was a hotel! Thats very big.

Its a part of the world I'd really like to visit.
