Saturday proved to be the better day, weather-wise, so we reorganized our plans and took a boat cruise up the fjords to see some of the most spectacular sights in Norway. I’ll let the pictures do the talking. It was quite a memorable day.
The Norwegian flag
This waterfall drops water from higher than 400 meters (about a 120 story building)
The boat pulled right up to the waterfall and water collected from the waterfall is collected with a bucket and shared with the passengers to sample.

The clouds introduced a different kind of drama on the three hour cruise.

We made a little time to discover the center of Stavanger and all it has to offer, including locally made items to bring back for family.
A typical Stavanger street scene - coffee shops and restaurants.
Sunday - Consolidating Findings
Sunday’s weather didn’t cooperate. A rainy day and blustery winds all day long. The team made good use of the day by reviewing information collected, identifying themes and categorizing observations. Good progress was made in the consolidation of findings.
Later, a tapas-style dinner was waiting for us at local favorite cafe, Matmagasinet. A great meal and a lovely hostess helped cap wrap up memorable weekend.
