An Egyptian Restaurant

This restaurant is located at Lagårdsveien, just across the police station. I bring my family here for lunch or dinner once a month. I like this restaurant because the place is nice and comfortable; the food is delicious with good prices and most of all it is halal meat.

The Natural Path

Stavanger is full of the nature paths winding along the coastal areas as well as more inland. As I told you yesterday, this is from close to the gamlehjemmet and the marina from the last two postings. I will take a picture of another path in the future.

As I’m writing this, it is raining outside just like a tropical storm. So when you see all my photos showing sunny days, well actually Stavanger also has its share of wind and rain.

Ramsvig Marina

Stavanger has many small marinas, this is one of them. Yesterday I posted a photo of Gamlehjemmet and this marina is on the right side of that building.

At the far end, on the opposite side of the marina, you can see the nature path winding its way around the marina and gamlehjem. I will show you a view of the nature path tomorrow.

Ramsvig Gamlehjem

This building has been used for various purposes. And now it is used as a home for old people. They have added two new wings. Unfortunately the new part is built in a modern style, clashing with the beauty of the old building.

The surrounding area is very serene and beautiful, with a small marina, a kolonihage and a nature path.

P.S. Matt, can you see the Norwegian flag there?

Old Tree in the City Park

This is a very old tree and only a few branches are sprouting. It looks a little bit like an Ent from Lord of the Rings.

Ullandhaug House 1

I passed this pretty house on the way to Ullandhaug tower. The greenery surrounding the house and the house bland beautifully. This is a house that I could imagine myself living in. Next time I will show you another house that I like to live in.
