Final days in Stavanger

The last two nights we stayed in Stavanger. It seems like a nice city with cozy restaurants and an interesting history. Nowadays it is an important port for the oil and gas industry, but before the oil was found it was the centre for packing sardines, that was one of the most important export goods of the time.

We spent the last afternoon at one of the splendid beaches enjoying the sunny day.

Not from the south, but Stavanger. Strange.
