Not had time to post anything lately, since the holidays are over, and somehow I got conned into working overtime. But here's a few bits and pieces from the last few days.
On Saturday we took a trip over to Molde on the Hurtigbåt (Fast Boat/Water Taxi) Simply because it was a fine day, and we fancied a pint of beer in the pub on the pier, the Dockside.
The Hurtigbåt takes about 20 minutes for the 11km crossing, at roughly 23 knots. Sometimes the boat goes through the sound between the small islands and, when the crew aren't scared, they go through at normal speed, which is quite impressive considering how little space there is in the channel. Here's a picture, passing the first marker.
So we had a wander around the street.
Molde is the original one street town, a bit like Lerwick, but for some strange reason Wikipedia insist that Molde is a city. Many attempts have been made to correct the error on Wikipedia, but they know better. Maybe Lerwick should be upgraded to a city.. LOL
Here's the street in Molde on a busy Saturday.
Anyway, not much else to say apart from back at work, temperatures in the high 20s during the day, and as I write this at 1030pm, it's still 22 degrees. Damn near tropical.
This of course suits our roses nicely, so here's a few shots of them from the last few days. We're kinda proud of them.
