Summer Holidays 2

Here is part two of our summer holiday (part 1 here).

Our second tourist day trip in south Norway was to Egersund, a town on a coastal inlet (fjord?), south of Stavanger. It’s picturesque, with the usual tourist trappings; several ice cream shops, flowers in the streets, a cute statue and knitted tree covers . . .

In the centre of town is the parish church building. Here is a 360 degree internal panorama. In some ways we were reminded of Prince George: the box pews, the smell, the uneven staircases and the trees which slightly resembled the live oaks of South Carolina:

I also had a quick play on the organ which is on the upper balcony, along with the choir stalls. Earlier in the summer the kantor position there was advertised, but I don’t know if it mentioned that organists with høydeskrekk need not apply (fear of heights)!

More soon . . .
