An early start to see us entering into the fjords. So picturesque with the shimmering turquoise waters. Into the gym (armed with a camera) for 2 classes back to back. Wont go anywhere near what I have eaten but it's a start!! Just in time for seated breakfast, back to shower then off to explore!! Trainers allow us to walk for a few hours although the viewing point is a step too far for rich. Skimming stones, watching the world go by inhaling the fresh, ...
... the top. Oh well! We will be on a boat that goes all the way down Sognefjord (the main fjord we are situated in), so that will be great too! For now, I'm drinking some Norwegian beer (only cost 50kr at the grocery store!! I'm starting to think I'm just at a sporting event where paying like $8 for beer or a hot dog is normal), and looking out the window and chilling. Isn't that what this trip is about! :) I only took like 2 pictures because rain, so here they are. It's really ...

It takes the Eurodam a while to berth. It actually is moored to a large buoy in the middle of the harbour, with holding lines stretched taught to the shore. Shore exit for passengers is via a ...
At about 3.30am we apparently entered the Sognefjord . The Sognefjord is the largest fjord in Norway, and the third longest in the world. Located in Sogn og Fjordane county, it stretches 205 kilometres inland to the small village of Skjolden. One of us, for some unknown reason is up taking photos and the other one of us is woken up to view the photos! Not happy Jan!!!!!! At a much more civilized time like 6am we are awake again and the scenery ...
