Yup, we've let mum have the blog again today. I have been helping her post her photos but it is very tiring to make sure she doesn't post too many. Dad got very excited when they reached Norway because he met up with his long lost twin.

Okay mum, it's over to you again.
After a day at sea we reached Norway and the very pretty town of Aalesund. We walked up the hill to the church which had lots of beautiful frescoes. This church was rebuilt after the fire that destroyed most of the town.
When we walked over the hill and down the other side, it brought us to the old harbour.
These old warehouses are amongst the few surviving buildings of the great fire of 1904. Being built of wood, most buildings were destroyed. The town centre was rebuilt in the Art Nouveau style.

All the buildings are post 1904 and built in the Art Nouveau style.

We had a good send off by the tug boat.

I have been asked several questions about the various photos and will try and answer them next week.
