    AMADEA visited Kristiansund today, and the harbour sightseeing on board sundbåt ferry FRAMNÆS seemed to be near fully booked. Returning from Grip, we see the charter boat Hagbart Waage to the right

      Thank you for the beautiful photographic update from KSU, Sterkoder!

      I saw a program on Norwegian Broadcasting a few days ago from HAGBART WAAGE's first trip out to Grip this season: sort of a minute for minute program.

        Whenever Grip is mentioned, there's a pilot involved.
        All cruise ships sailing from Trondheim or Kristiansund, sail into international waters via Grip. They sail during the night, and re-entry Norwegian waters via the dedicated spot they take pilot on board down nearby Ålesund.
        That's the only reason I see for putting up Kristiansund/Grip as departure point. No ship has ever sent pax in with tenders.
        As for Amadea, she was in Kristiansund, as will Berlin as she visit us from 13:00 to 22:00 today, 14th July.
        It will happen again in August, when Amadea once more sail from Tromsø to Kristiansund and Ålesund after that.

        No nothing to do with dropping pilot at Grip. It only applies to vessels arriving Aalesund from Kr.sund, not the many that arrives from Trondheim. (I.e. only the two mentioned ships)
        Nothing to do with how they declare on AIS either, since this refers to the Cruise List issued moths ago.

        Ok. Then I guess they declare Kristiansund/Grip as departure port because they came to port, moored and stayed for the day (AMADEA 10th July and BERLIN today, 14th July) and left, via Grip pilot pickup/delivery to go to Ålesund. The next time you will see this is 10th August, when AMADEA once again will call Kristiansund from Tromsø, and leave via Grip to Ålesund.

      In the old days, or at least up to the late 1970s, fishermen came to the city with their small boats to sell fish. Then they moored bow in side by side along these steps, hence called the Fisketrappa (the fish stairs)

          In Kristiansund we have an old abandoned school which will be torn down to be replaced by a 'Kulturhus' or rather a new opera house..., whenever that time comes.
          Anyway, I was lucky enough to get inside the building, legally, in May 2016 and here are a few of my pictures from that visit.
          Some might have been published before, but due to the Photobucket-problems, I guess they are long gone, so I repost together with five-six new ones.
          I use about 25-30% HDR in these images, as I belive HDR can be defended in Urbex photography.
          This is not Urbex per say, because vandals has been inside to "help" the time a bit, but anyway...

              WAAAAOOOW:......

              First things first, I don't think I have ever seen any images from on board the FRAMNÆS... has anyone been on board to document her with a camera?

              Secondly, the abandoned building photos are so appealing to me - I had to see them literally a handful of times over and over again. How exciting!

                Thanks.
                If abandoned buildings and the "tooth of time" is appealing to you, as it is to me, click into Rebecca Bathorys homepage at www.rebeccabarthory.com, and I can assure you will be stunned.
                Also click into her short video about making the Orphans of Time and turn up the volume. If that doesn't give goosebumps, noithing will...

                I might have a couple of interior pictures from Framnæs. Will look them up.

                  WAOW... that is a link I need to spend some time looking at. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing!

                About those interior pictures from Framnæs, the sundbåt, I didn't have as many as I thought. Must get more in the future.

                  So awesome... I really need to visit FRAMNÆS at my next trip to Kristiansund! Certainly built with old traditions in mind!

                    Agree, she looks very nice indeed!

                  This is an old music pavilion in Kristiansund, with very poor acoustic performance. No musician or band like it at all.
                  Therefore, over the years, it has been used by the "loose birds" in the city as a place to gather and drink their alcohol, and it has been totally tagged down. No nice grafitti, only pure ugly tags.
                  This year Kristiansund can celebrate its 275th birthday, and so the city authorities used some money to refurbish such constructions, and icons, around in the city.
                  Hope it stay this way for a while.

                    The 'birds' have close to leave their bottles though... :-)
                    I've worked on similar stages, the only solution is to perform music that needs so much amplification that the natural acoustics are covered by the amplification.

                  I do remember that pavillion from Kristiansund and I'm so happy to see that it has been restored and repainted - and pray that the taggers leave it alone!

                  So pretty as long as they spraycans are kept away!

                    I'm truly sorry for hijacking your city's thread but here is a couple of images of the former Sundbåten - sad to see her rusting away like this:

                        Nice new pictures in this thread, Jan-Olav.
                        Yes, the sundbåten Nordsund is a sad sight. People in Kristiansund are angry towards the owner (NOT Thon Hotels) who is a private guy nobody can get hold of. Anyway...

                        Yesterday, in a downpour of rain, I took my weathersealed Pentax for a walk down by the Mellemværftet Yard in Vågen and the skate park where I parked my car.
                        It has been my view, and I've said it for many years, why can't Kristiansund grab the opportunity to be THE street art city of Norway? Finally someone picked up the glove, so to speak, and after the very first street art workshop held, the city gave the street art artists a wall to paint. The city painted it whit first, and it was (is) open for whoever want to get creative.
                        Let's hope we see street art many more places in the city in the future.
