Day two of our weekend trip found us in the pretty seaside town of Stavern, a very popular stop for folks on their summer holidays/vacation. It is a small place, but brims with interesting architecture, art galleries, outdoor markets, history, little beaches and an idyllic coastline.
We were lucky with our weekend visit in that the annual vintage car parade took place in Stavern. Here the old beauties are starting out from within the historic fortress of Fredriksvern Naval Base (no longer in military use). For an extra view of some of the cars, stop by my photo blog.
Maritime models for sale at the little gift shop/tourist information office at Fredriksvern.
I am stopping to smell the roses outside the Commander's living quarters at Fredriksvern.
Some of the buildings at Fredriksvern have been turned into small arts and crafts galleries--Stavern is well known for being an artist's town, with lots of arts & crafts people living and displaying their works there. Here are two sculptures taking a look at the canal. We love Stavern!
Stop by on Friday for a trip to an extra special place...
