We took a trip today to the Nordnesparken here in Bergen to make the most of the last of the good weather. The Nordnes peninsula lies right in the heart of the city and separates Vågen, which contains the Bryggen area, from the south eastern part of the harbour area. This narrow finger of land has a park at its far end which follows the shoreline around the point behind the Bergen Aquarium and has fantastic views out towards the island of Askøy. The park is home to some very large trees and almost every vantage point has conveniently situated benches for those rare nice days when you can sit in the sun and enjoy the vistas. It is also home to a rather surprising gift from the city of Seattle.
