    Re: This is Ålesund

    While we are at the Museum, here is an old schoolhouse decorated for X-mas:


    And the flag was hoisted, this being a public flag day in Norway:

      Of cause I had to look at the boats belonging to the Museum to see if they had survived unscathed.

      Borgundknarren was ashore and looked well protected:

        As did the boats afloat:




        Helland is also well "packed up":

          Re: This is Ålesund

          I'm not sure if all these boats belong to the Museum:


          There were clear signs that the water had been quite high though:

            Standing outside and unprotected was an old single cylinder Semi-diesel motor of vintage design:






            I think some restoration of the covers etc. may have been carried out during the week since the hurrican,

              Sad to see the broken trees at Sunnmøre Museum, but great to know that none fell on some of the old buildings!
              Glad I managed to see the museum area beautiful and as it was during a trip to Ålesund last summer.
              After looking at 'ombugge's pictures taken now, may I refer to how it was by looking back at my report on pages 18 and 19 of this thread.
              Thanks for moving around with your camera 'ombugge', and I must say I really look forward to visiting Ålesund again next summer, as i'm sure there will be yet another cruise ship I want to see, and I also plan to bring my family to Sunnmøre museum.
              Hope the damages are delt with until then...

                      This street is NOT for the fainthearted:


                      Utstillingsplassen has got a new sculpture:


                      Would you like to live under a shear cliff like this??


                      PS> Two weeks after this Picture was taken someone managed to run a car off the cliff at Fjellstua.
                      The house had to be evacuated while the rescue service recovered the car, hanging on a couple of trees.

                        Why would anybody put protection on light poles??


                        Or on a tree???


                        You want to know where to walk on Aksla??

                          This used to be a school, but look like it has been turned into flats:
