We had a lovely week cruising up to Norway, visiting Bergen, Olden, Alesund and Stavanger. The weather was kind to us and apart from a couple of hours drizzle in Bergen the sun shone all week and the sea was calm.

The top photograph shows our ship, Oriana between some of the charming wooden houses in the old area of Stavanger. Phoebe and I rather fancied living in one of these or in the lovely green house in the next photograph. This was at Olden. Having sailed about 65miles up the fjord to Olden we got off the ship just by this house and went on a coach trip to the lake shown in the last photo. The water was a really lovely shade of green because the movement of the glaciers means that the water contains a lot of fine sediment from the rocks. We went on a trip across the lake and then walked up to just below the glacier.
