    Langevaagsbaaten Voeringen arriving in Aalesund:




    Difference in size is not caused by optical illusion:

    On the contrary.

    I find I still got some pictures from Aalesund from our last days there that haven't be posted yet.

    High tide and windy. Even the narrowest part of Brosundet have waves:


    Wyvern af Aalesund being prepared for the winter:


    The shortest "Pilot Ladder" I have ever seen:

    In the "Good old days" there were a lot of bus companies in Ålesund. Landes Rutebiler/bybussen, Spjelkavikruta, Emblemsruta, Sularuta, Skodjeruta, Ørskog/Stordalen, Stranda/Sykkylven, Mørebil - just to mention some, I may have forgotten many. When the Rutebilstasjonen were built in the early 60-ies, it was very modern and ahead of its time.
    Speaking of the buses, here is the Time Express bus, plying the route Volda - Aalesund - Molde - Kr.sund every hour during the day and evening (0700 - 2300, or 7/11 if you want):


    The medium range buses have go a different colour scheme from the short range and long range buses:

    Thank you for this winter holiday in Alesund. It is nice to see all the buses parking in the depot over the holidays year for year. And there were plenty of new, unknown sights. I enjoyed this very much. Seems you will return to Singapore soon?

    The lights today has been quite changing, from a colourless sunrise to fast changing conditions during the short day, to a fairly colourless sunset. (Strong SE'ly wind and dry all day)

    Here is the view from the veranda at 1347 hrs.:


    By 1402 hrs. colours started to appear on the clouds:


    At 1420 hrs. we were in town:

    Glad you enjoyed Aalesund, both in person and my reports from walkabouts this last two weeks.
    There will not be too much more from me now, but don't despair, the Cruise season is just around the corner.

    Your pictures from Ålesund put me in a mood of 'alenetid' (time spent alone) in a summery Ålesund...., only me, my camera and my Toyota.
    Spending time in this beautiful city from 0700 in the morning to way past noon, together with large cruise ships and their passengers givs me a lot...., and on to top it all with a ship and stay in Åndalsnes...., wow!!!!
    So, thanks for walking/driving around, giving us these impressions!

    The main attraction is of cause the "windows" in the floor to view the fish swimming below:


    Lights below water both attract fish and make it possible to see them during the night:




    It is hard to zoom in on the fish though:

    For some reason the fish doesn't want to keep still long enough to get in focus.

    Some interesting effects occurs though:

    The outside and inside lighting is very blue and not very bright. :

    Maybe they should name the place Skimmed Milk?



    Milk canister and milk bottles (British?) are used as decorations:


    Hard to see here, but along the mid-divder there are live gas flames:

    I did promise to report on the new bar in Aalesund, appropriately named MILK.
    Yesterday we were the first guests to arrive for an overpriced beer and glass of wine, just to keep my promise to the CVF family. (The hardship of it all)

    This should indicate the location of the bar:

    Situated above the old Ferry Ramp at Skateflukaia.

    More external views:




    It is only open from 1800 hrs. in winter:
