Since I got past the historical blurb yesterday, here's the scenic pics from Alesund.
It really is a lovely town, but I'll start with a view, out to sea, from the Aquarium, which featured in an earlier post. The island to the left is Godøy.

I'll post some more architecturally interesting pics in a later blog, but here's one which gives a rough idea of what it's like.
