As of tomorrow we are officially at full speed through to Pentecost (sounds much ruder in Norwegian – sorry, couldn’t resist).
The pictures above are from the local paper which less than a week ago used the whole front page to trumpet that the 100 million krone (10 million pound / 17 million dollar) safety project to widen the shipping channel and improve the navigation lights, was finished ahead of schedule! That was less than a week ago. The work was in response to dozens of accidents in the last decade. Oops.
Thankfully, it’s now been towed free!
