Haugesund, Norway

We spent most of one morning cruising the scenic fjords — and I can't begin to express how beautiful they are! Here is a shot of one of the magnificent waterfalls we saw.

That afternoon, we visited Haugesund, which hadn't been on our original itinerary but was added when a different town had to be eliminated for technical reasons. We visited the Lutheran church there, which had just finished its renovations shortly before. This church was very light and airy inside, and we were lucky enough to find ourselves there during an organ rehearsal. :)

Walking along the quai, we saw many small houseboats boats, whose inhabitants were taking advantage of the summer weather for picnicking. Of course, their summer weather feels a bit chilly for people like me who live in the southwest desert! LOL! This particular boat was popular with the swans, as a man and a small child were feeding them. 

Stay tuned for a few more photos!
