The island of Hjertøya lies a small distance from the town of Molde and is home to a very unique fisheries museum.
Old buildings have been gathered together, on the island, in the form of a fishing village from the past. Houses fishermen's böds (that's the Shetland word for them), a farm house, a school, workshops, boat houses, etc.
Housed in these buildings are a wide range of displays which depict life in a historical fishing community.
Here's a picture of the island as seen from Varden (The Ward) above Molde. Pity it was a hazy day, the mountains in the background are spectacular.
Here's some of the assorted sheds which adorn the shoreline.
One of the larger sheds houses a collection of old boats.
It would take dozens of pictures to show the smaller display items, but this caught my eye. Old floats, with the fisherman's name on them.
Back to more pleasant things. In the farmhouse this old stove caught my attention.
The island, and the museum is absolutely stunning, I could go on about it for ages but best I stop for now...
Yun's aa fir enoo.
