Sadly, we were in Bergen for less than 48 hours. We arrived around 3 pm on a Sunday and caught a taxi to the airport at noon on Tuesday. The first two days, I took tons of scenic images of the town (which I showed in my last post). The last morning we were there, we left the house early to explore the side of town we hadn’t visited yet.
These photos are from that trip. They are less expansive and beautiful, and more of the “vacation photos” variety, but I love them just the same.
The day began when we caught a teeny ferry across the bay. We didn’t have time to make the 45 min walk around the water and back, and this ferry was a 5 min. ride and only a few dollars. Both rides we were the only ones on the boat, and the captain let Ezra ring the bell for our departure each time. This might have been a trip highlight for the kid.
He had just rung the bell here.
I know I’m bad about posting photos of myself on the blog, but honestly I always have the camera up to my face and I’m bad at stopping and posing. I was glad Jamie caught this moment.
While inside this tiny boat, the windows were about at water level. This was our view.
And that, above, is the boat pulling away, heading back to the other side. Cute, isn’t it!? It’s called The Beffen. The rest of the photos are just things I stopped to shoot while we walked to get coffee and pastries and then explored for an hour before ferrying back to our house to catch a cab to the airport.
I really just wanted an image of this cute street, but ok, I guess I’ll photograph the handsome man as well.
I mean, I know I showed you that gorgeous Starbucks, but this McDonald’s?!? Really?
This white house was where we stayed. It was built in the very early 1800s and was fantastic. We had the first floor and the homeowners live on the top two floors. It was quite charming to hear muffled jazz and Norwegian in the evenings, I must admit. And the water is only a block away, so the breeze through those windows? A+.
