Farvel Florø   9 comments

That’s good bye in Norwegian incase you thought it was a spelling mistake. Leaving Florø behind and the North sea ahead we pass one more house that stood out, well stood on top of a large rock might describe it better. These crazy Norwegian’s will live anywhere. But I’m glad they do because this is a functioning lighthouse right in the middle of the shipping lane. The guy in the boat circled it a few times, maybe to let the occupants know he was there or maybe like us just fascinated with the structure.

And yes I’ve changed my theme again, I didn’t think my photo’s were big enough, hope you like. Remember you can click an image to see it full size, but you shouldn’t need to now.

Florø   4 comments

After leaving Florø harbour we head out to open water, on the way we pass some pretty nice houses in some great locations. If you think getting the morning paper was going to be difficult living here? Wait until you see tomorrows post.

What’s an ø?   7 comments

Florø is Norway’s most westernmost town, It was built on the site of a farm ‘Flora’ in 1860, but they drop the “a” and replace it with a “ø”. The “ø” is the Danish word meaning “island” added to the end since the town is located on an island. I bet you didn’t know that, ok maybe you did. I had one of the nicest pizza’s in my life here, who would have thought that?

Very picturesque, but like most town’s in Norway the industrial side of life always finds it’s way to the waters edge.
