This year we had Jack and Nancy visiting us from San Diego, so we took them for some sightseeing and so on - here are some photos from their stay.

|"Swords in Rock". |
It was here Harald Hårfagre fought a battle that united Norway into one kingdom in 872 AD.
The monument represents peace, unity and freedom.
The Viking swords' hilts are modelled on swords found in various parts of the country.
|Old Stavanger comprises 173 wooden buildings from the turn of the 18th century. |
Most of them are small, white cottages.
Stavanger has received several awards for its efforts to preserve Old Stavanger.

and won the marsipan pig.
