A fantastic day yesterday with lots of wildlife, some earlier than we'd expect. The day started when we heard woodpeckers in the nearby woods. On the loch-side the swallows and red kites flew overhead while the otter played in the water.
As night fell, the skies to the north brightened and the owls hooted to announce the appearance of an aurora.

A very short visit to Norway on Discovery, a nice start to the season. We took lots of photographs, as usual, and you can see them by clicking through any of the pictures posted here,
It was a cruise where our main shore activity was to meet with friends & relatives. We did our annual update of Norwegian tourist information. Most of all, we enjoyed it during our first cruise on Discovery.

It was raining again as we sailed under the Askøy Bridge on our way into Bergen. After a morning of rain (as forecast by Captain), it brightened during the afternoon.
Statsraad Lehmkuhl sailed out, we'd meet here again later. The whole harbour was very busy although Discovery was the only visiting cruise ship.
