May, 2015 - NORWAY #2 - BERGEN

We did a day trip by fast ferry to Bergen.  As chance would have it this was the Norwegian Constitution Day, a national Holiday.  We were treated to a great parade and nearly all the Norwegians dressed in traditional dress.  However, all the museums and tourist attractions were closed.

The weather was appalling, with sleet and rain.  Normal for Bergen, but not ideal for our enjoyment.

Apart from the weather Bergen is a beautiful city and lunch at the fish market was excellent.

Can you stop the rain sir?

The traditional clothes were stunning.

Some dressed for the weather.

Some braved the weather without rain gear.

No visit to Bergen is complete unless you take the vernicular to the top of the city.  The views are stunning. 

The vernicular arrives at the top.

Meeting half way.

The face of fear.  Not a fan of  the view going down.
