Part II

Splendour of the Seas
Port of Call:
Geiranger, Norway
9AM - 5 PM

Norwegian-flagged Splendour of the Seas rests
comfortably in Geiranger Fjord as her passengers
explore the beautiful little town at the end of the fjord.

There is a short tender ride in to town.

Here you can buy a genuine Norwegian sweater
and other souvenirs from a gift shop with flowers 
bursting from the roof.

A necessary stop.

This lone poppy grabbed its little bit of sunshine 
from behind a building.

Farmers and tourists stock up at the local grocery.

This is the camping center.

We followed a road around the fjord... a rushing river formed by snow melting 
high above in the fjord.

Splendour of the Seas and other recreational vehicles.

In addition to camping, a hotel is available.

In a restaurant overlooking the fjord,
we met some friends from the ship.

This is the view looking up from our table at the restaurant.

My husband, Kjell, took this image of me
with a friend I met in the fjord. 

I'm on the left.  :-)

We captured a few more images as we walked 
back toward the tender.

This ferry transports vehicles and passengers 
into and out of the fjord.

As we watched Splendour's tender shuttle passengers
back and forth to the ship...

...we enjoyed a soft is (soft ice cream cone)...

...with many others.

All too soon it was time to go back to the ship, but we
had more treats ahead before it would be time to retire
for the night.  As light and shadows change, various
beauties of the fjord are revealed.  Ahead of us 
we had still the beautiful journey back through 
the fjord to return to the North Sea.
