a trip well worth taking from Lysebotn back to Stavanger - or perhaps even better do it in the other direction, we took the M/S Fjordlys Hurtigbåt which took a stunning 1.30mins and only 6 cars but during the summer months you can also take the larger and more relaxed Lysefjord sightseeing boat that takes about 4hours and 100cars, you see cherry trees in Lysebotn along with the energy station, hydro-wheel sculpture and workers commemoration statue, Kjerag and the Prekestolen from below and many more mouth watering views

jernaldergarden - a glimse of life some 1500 years ago at this beautifully preserved iron age farm right in the middle of stavanger - stunning history and fabulous views over the rest of Jæren lets the mind dream about what it must have been like all that time ago, just can't believe it took such a long time for me to get round to visit!!

stavanger by night - such warm summer evenings - sitting on the balcony admiring the views watching the sun go down - twilight at this time lasts such a long time and the little lights twinkle in the blue dusk as the occassional car zips by on the road below

A beautiful evenings paddling, with dinner on store marøy, before paddling round the nature reserve on lite marøy (herrons and seals and oyster catchers everywhere!!) and the most wonderful sunset whilst returning from the pebbly beach at Uskjo, like liquid gold on the lapping water, quite something, the new kystatlas proved its worth, finding us a couple of nice docking spots

the stunning summer weather continues, a fabulous mountain hike from prestolen to bratteli on lysefjord over high rugged mountain, through the smell of hot pine forests, past babbling streams and warm lakes, finished off by a brisk cruise along the lysefjord under pulpit rock - looks very precarious from underneath...!

a stunning saturday spent with the sola windsurf club heading up and down and round a couple of island on hafrsfjord, plus a little too much sun bathing after in the brilliant heat, but strawberries and moreller were well worth it, topped off by a BBQ with a rather spectacular view
