    The condition of these old Cod Lever Oil Factories pictured by Sterkoder has not improved either:

    Remember this Pirate boat from a Sterkoder report last year?:






    It hasn't received much maintenance since. Here is a closer look at the present condition:

    In former days the post adress was 6022 Åsestranda. Indre Åse, Furmyr Gartneri perhaps?

    Simply wonderful, and delightful photos too.
    The seagull monument is near the location of an actual seagull colony breeding on a rock wall in the middle of town:http://www.alesund.kommune.no/fakta-...g-og-sprenging

    The blasting away of this rock and the demolition of the large stone villa situated above, caused a lot of debate and even demonstrations.
    For those with real interest in this subject, here is a link with 74 pictures giving a sequential history: http://www.smp.no/kultur/article5214503.ece

    I had intended to add something about the other photos on this walk of yours too, because I particularly enjoyed seeing the various buildings big and small that you saw along the way, and, just as I would have done, paused to take a photo. This is without a doubt the kind of pleasurable activity that can distract me from getting around to visiting the places featuring in excursions and tourist info

    Also very interesting to see the various academic establishments, and in particular I had no idea of the extent of the facilities at NCCM.
