It is called Marina here where about 1000 boats anchored to the dock. I took the picture from the bridge. I would love to have one, hhmm …

Statue

This statue is dedicated to the men and women of Norwegian blood who have contributed to the building of America as you can read on the stone. It was built 150 years ago.

More than 160 years ago Norwegian people started the immigration. This statue was made to celebrate the 100th year of immigration which means that it was built around 60 years ago. My apology.

Musikk Pavilion

This place is called Musikk Pavilion because sometimes there’s a band or a group of people singing there. It’s near the breiavatnet in the city center.

Domkirke

It’s an old cathedral called Stavanger Domkirke. The cathedral was built in Anglo-Norman style, probably by English craftsmen in the year 1125. In 1272 the cathedral was damaged by fire, after which it received a new chancel built in the Gothic style. Stavanger Cathedral is the only Norwegian cathedral from the Middle Ages that has retained its original appearance and been in constant use.

Swan

When we took a walk in the city center yesterday, I saw this lovely swan family having a leisure time at the edge of the lake. Apparently these eggs just had hatched. What a cute baby swans.

The Fountain

After postponing many times, finally I decided to publish Stavanger Daily Photo today. I will begin my photo blog by showing you the fountain in the middle of the lake. The name of the lake is Breiavatnet which means wide lake. I have no idea why its name is wide lake because actually the lake is just small, ha ha.
