          Tallest Christmas tree in the World (at sea?)

          Tallest Christmas tree in the World (at sea?)

          From the norwegian newspaper Verdens Gang today:

          The tallest Christmas tree at sea is in the reception hall of Trollfjord.

            Wonderful article and gesture...

            1500 will celebrate Christmas on board a HRG ship this year - nice to see such a high number.

              I guess I got some explaining to do here...: my brother with his two children were on board heading back to Trondheim and I flashed them with a mag light from the shoreline beneath our house. Naturally, as awake as the ship's officers are, they probably also saw the light and wanted to make sure it was not from someone in some kind of distress..... so they investigated with their own search light...

              This only goes to show how IMPORTANT these ships are for the Norwegian coast: they always keep a very vigilant and wake eye on all activities which could stem from someone in distress anywhere along the coast. Not only once have the ships discovered people in actually need for help.

              Therefore, my appreciation goes out to all those that keep a wake eye in the night watching over our coast and to those that make it possible by letting these ships continue in their trade as they have been doing for more than 100 years.

                Your post just made my day – a charming personal story, a favourite ship, a unique photo, and a reminder of just how much Hurtigruten matters and how IMPORTANT the coastal service is in so very many ways.

                    When I was walking around on the Island of Aspøy - which is one of the 3 islands Ålesund are built on and the one I live on - and taking some photos, Trollfjord was sailing in to Ålesund harbour. Here are some of the pictures I took:
