Wednesday 16 August -- Bergen Norway

Wednesday 16 August --Bergen Norway
  We opted for room service for breakfast, then set out on an excursion called "Lysoen Island & Ole Bull's Exotic Fairytale Home". Not sure what I thought it was when I booked it, but we discovered that Ole Bull was a famous Norwegian musician who built a marvellous summer home on Lysoen Island. Of course, it rained, but we enjoyed the bus trip there on narrow steep winding roads and the short boat ride to the island. The man lived quite a life! Then back into Bergen for a city tour before our return to the ship.
 2nd place in trivia today -- a couple steps up!
  While we enjoyed dinner at a window table, we could see a small group of  musicians, dressed in red, gathering on the pier. We got back to our cabin in time to applaud from our balcony as they serenaded the ship out of port. What fun!
  As we went out of the harbour, we could hear loud music from Frosh Week parties. We had seen students around town and our guide had mentioned that everyone in town was relieved when this week ended every year.
  Then a lively salute to the music of the British Invasion. Tomorrow's early, so an early night.
