    This is Kristiansund

    http://captainsvoyage.7.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=515

    Continuing from our old forum the thread containing pictures, info and other things about Kristiansund.

    Shot a couple of pictures in Vågen and from Varden today.
    Here's one from Varden, with Freikollen (629 m.) nearest and Reinsfjell (920 m.) covered in snow in the background


    Another one from Varden overlooking the harbour and city towards south-east


    Here's one from Vågen, with the pilot-boat in the foreground

    Beautiful. The video has had the desired effect ... it makes me want to visit.

    Nice one! And almost historic, if i look at the ships. So much changed in such a short time!

    Thanks for sharing. This nice video reminds me some places I have visited in 1981. Unfortunately, Hurtigruten calls are too short in Kristiansund, we have not enough time to go to the museum, for instance.

    Yes, we just had the most wet snow shower for a long time here. One hour before, it was crystal clear, and it will be once the days are dry :-)

    Kristiansund has got another high quality web-cam mounted.
    This is the view from top of Nordlandet towards the harbor and Kirkelandet, can also be turned towards Markussundet inlet (as you know from the cruise ship arrivals and departures :-)

    From a walk in the city Saturday, in black and white.

    This might look like a long exposure photo, but there's a thin, thin layer of ice on the water

    The ducks might have the same saying like pilots: Every landing you can walk away from, is a good landing (hahaha)

    As the crazy guy in the White House has his own name on buildings, I figured I'd put my nick up on one here :-)

    No, this is not Gaza nor West Bank, but a street view in Kristiansund

    That's correct, but sometimes I miss the cruise ship passengers, walking around with their paper maps (never heard of Google Map with direction to where you want to go?).
    Anywho, in a quiet coastal city, they create life in the narrow city streets :-)

    Looks peaceful without the cruise ship passengers.

    Anywho, live webcams or not...., today we saw a very high tide here in Kristiansund. Well, not only here, but along the very coast of Norway.

    At normal high tide, the surface is over one meter lower

    At Mellemværftet old ship yard, the sea came several meters up on shore and over the path where one walks from let's say Atlanten Camping to town

    The wooden quay was under the sea surface

    The quay and slipways. The quay is in there somewhere

    There's also a new camera mounted at the City Hall now, viewing the Pier, City Hall Square, harbor and the beautiful scooner IDEAL (when she's in town)
