We took the famous Fast-Ferry from Balestrand to Bergen. It hydroplanes on two small rails and hits speeds of over 60mph. Here is a shot of the ferry throwing an impressive amount of spray as it hits speed.In the Fjord.
As soon as we hit Bergen I grabbed the map and compass and headed for a famous fly-fishing shop on market street.And here it is!

A nice shot of the Bergen harbor. Again, this is a working harbor and not just for show so there was a huge mix of pleasure craft and working boats.

On the city tour a neat statue of Ibsen.
Dried cod in the fish market.The fish market in Bergen. Yes, it stank.
One of the narrow streets in the old city.
We took a tram to the top of a mountain that overlooks Bergen, here is a shot of the city.Bergen's harbor in the evening.

Another shot of the harbor.
