    This is Florø

    Can't find a thread like this, so I take a chance and make one. I don't want to put the pictures into the thread for pictures of places without their own thread..., simply because there's a good chance someone will go back to Florø, so there might be more...

    I find it natural to start with a grafitti I found by walking outside of the usual and normal path


    Another thing I found while walking away from the public areas and streets, were this cosy entrance to an old fishshop. The owner was born 13. March 1934 and died 31. December 2013. By looking through the windows, I could see that this is a location used for more than selling fish. The late owner must have been a dedicated ship model builder, as it was several model boxes present as well as not finished ones around. I just fell for the photography friendly entrance


    A fence down on a small quay area was decorated by someone...


    Here's my home away from home, Quality Hotel Florø. My room was behind window number three from the right side on the second floor. Cosy maritime interior


    First thing I did after work Wednesday was to walk around Storvatnet


    Then took the stairs up to Kinnvegen to walk back

    Small nice looking private homes

    Football stadium


    In the area around Hjørneviken and the hotel


    In Hjørnevika we have Hjørneviksbua, where there's a pub on the first flore and a very nice restaurant on the second floor. Ate there yesterday, had the Buabiff, highly recommented.

      Across the street from Hjørnevikbua is the local brewery Kinn Bryggeri. (Norwegians might recognize this from 'Truls oppdrag Hurtigruten' from the tv




      Florø City Hall. Yes, it's true..


      Cosy looking tourist info


      Small shops in the Strandgaten

          Florø definetely deserves a own thread. Thank you Sterkoder for posting. Your 'doors' theme is particularly interesting from a photographic point of view.

            Really enjoyable Sterkoder. Still one of the Hurtigruten ports where I haven't had an extended stop-over, and your fine photos sure provide some encouragement.

          Very enjoyable new thread, Sterkoder - and a great start of the thread too!

          No image of Fjord1 headoffice?

            I drove past the main office late at night the 5th, but on my way from a great dinner back to my hotel...., I did not stop to take a picture.
            (There's no points for guessing that I was NOT the driver) :-)
