Transatlantic — Stavanger; Touring Lysefjord


Lysefjord

Ursula had us booked on a boat tour departing Stavanger for the nearby Lysefjord. Lysefjord is a 26-mile/42-kilometer-long fjiord located about 16 miles/25 kilometers southeast of Stavanger.

But along the way to the entrance of Lysefiord, be prepared to snap some interesting islands and houses with boat barns:

Just shy of a kilometer into the mouth of Lysefjiord is a rather unique building that looks as if it’s sinking into the ground. This is the Lysefjiordsenteret, a restaurant with a private quay (wharf):

And just beyond that is the picturesque Lysefjiord Hyttegrend (campground):

About fifteen to twenty minutes beyond this point the terrain begins to change:

So start panning upward to enjoy the views:

How is El Paso holding up since the white supremacist attack?


I went to my favorite El Paso local gun store today. Almost no .380 ACPs left. Nearly empty cases once filled with Glocks, Walthers, and SIGs.

S&W SW99 in .45 ACP; Walther P99c AS in 9mm

Elsewhere across town, concealed carry courses are sold out, and additional classes are being added.

Colt Government Models in .45 ACP and .38 Super +P

The next white supremacist piece of garbage coming here is going to be in for a rude awakening.
