    Re: This is Bodø

    Yes, you're correct..., we're in Bodø.
    Where we go next, well, you'll just have to keep watching.

    Not exactly Bodø, but close enough: here's Saltstraumen


    Just inside the strong current is a quiet spot


    The current was at its strongest today at 17:08

      I love the reflections in #46:2, and also how the red house and green grass contrasts out from the grey background.

        What an enchanting spot it is.
        I’m also admiring the composition of that portrait format view of the current beneath the bridge and the rocks in the foreground.

          Thanks folks!!

          Well, for those who follow my steps around, we left Bodø today.
          We said goodbye to the Rica Hotel Bodø in Sjøgata...


          ..to "Gamle Salten"...


          ...and "Skogøy".


          On board the ferry "Bodø" over to Moskenes, I spotted "Hanse Explorer"


          Before we sailed out on the Landegodefjord, I took apicture as we passed the Nordholmen Skanse


          And "Nordfisk"

            I don't know how far out on the Vestfjorden I can stretch the Bodø-thread, but I'll have a go


            No weather for sunbathing today. Only emty chairs...., in mid-July


            Think I'll jump over to the Lofoten-thread now

              Bye bye Gamle Salten! bye bye Skogøy! Goodness it feels quite emotional, so much do I feel I’m holidaying with you …but now off to another thread and new adventures. I can see where this is heading!
              The attractively sturdy-looking Hanse Explorer and also Nordfisk were good “spots” –great photos “on the go”

                      I've just taken a look at this thread and I like the details I haven't yet seen yet in real life. For next time ! (I particularly like the nice view you can have from the top of the hotel indicated by Seagull).

                      Here is my contribution to the thread.

                      Fortress seen from the ship:

                        ….and what a great contribution it is! …a study in beige and grey tones, with just the very slightest hint of red in the flag ...and just enough snow and ice to pick out details in the rocks!

                        Next time I have a stop-over in Bodø I will go the the fortress, something I haven’t yet done.

                        One has to be aware of the opening times of that bar at the top of the Radisson hotel, currently:-
                        Top 13 Rooftop Bar Opening hours
                        18:00 - 00:30 (Mon - Thu)
                        16:00 - 02:30 (Fri)
                        11:00 - 02:30 (Sat)
                        Closed (Sun)

                          Some of you perhaps my summer-work a few years ago, on the HSC Skogøy back up there in Bodø....

                          Look what they did a few days ago - they saved an eagle from drowning when they suddenly became aware of the big bird which had landed in the ocean... as you all know, once on the water, and eagle can not make flight again.

                          Cudos to the crew of Skogøy for their work!

                            Wonderful story! Well done Skogøy-crew.
                            I always had a soft spot for that HSC – even though it wasn't you driving when I took a trip on her!
