    Stavanger

    September 5, 2017 in Norway ⋅ 🌧 15 °C

    We awoke to the sight of land as we approached Stavanger for an 8:30am arrival.
    Before disembarking from the aft starboard gangplank (how many new nautical words can I use in one sentence), we enjoyed a leisurely breakfast hoping the overcast drizzly conditions would blow over. They didn't. So we got our raincoats out and set off for a stroll around Stavanger.
    Nothing much to write about other than noting Old Stavanger was pretty with it's white buildings and potted flowers lining the streets.
    We reboarded (there's probably a nautical word for that) and ate a late lunch before going to the cinema to watch a film.
    We set sail again at 4:30pm and with a glass of wine beside me, this is when I penned this update.
    We are going to watch a comedian called William Caulfield tonight then head for an 80's Extravaganza - not sure if that's music from the 80's or a night out for about a third of the people on this boat!
