When we were finished with the conference a few of us traveled by the fast ferry back to Trondheim, while the rest of our team returned in the van with all of our equipment.
While waiting for our ferry to arrive at the terminal I took a last look at the coastline, and captured these memories forever on film for your viewing pleasure!
The coast of Norway in this area was stunning in its beauty – reflecting the gentleness and calm waters that represent well the lifestyle and peaceful attitude of Scandinavia.
The weather during my stay in Orland and on the inland shores of Norway had been beautiful – and this fast ferry trip promised to be a wonderful experience.
The promise of this wonderful journey to Trondheim by fast ferry turned out to be everything I thought it would be…and more.
One of the guys taking the ferry trip with me snapped a few pictures of me with my camera, and I did the same for him on his.
Here I am in this cropped view of the previous photo – dressed for the weather and enjoying immensely the beautiful Norwegian sunshine!
The tide was out in these photos – representing and reminding us of how the events of our lives can ebb and flow as well.
I would have loved to have seen the open ocean on the western shore of Norway, but the calm and peaceful inner coastline was so very beautiful.
The trip to Trondheim was still a long voyage – even on a fast catamaran hulled ferry that traveled as fast as a speedboat.
Another photo of yours truly on the coastline of Norway at low tide – enjoying my final moments on the western inner coastline of Norway.
Sometimes you just have to travel to distant shores and remote places just to understand how small we are in relation to the size of this beautiful world called Earth.
Here’s the arrival of the car and passenger ferry to pick up those waiting to return to the mainland of Norway – but this wasn’t our ferry to take.
In the distance our fast ferry approaches the ferry terminal at a measured pace – leaving its speed for the open sea lanes of the fjords.
This fast ferry trip to Trondheim exceeded my every expectation for the absolute beauty of speeding through the beautiful fjords enroute to the wonderful city of Trondheim.
A photo of our fast ferry quietly docked at the ferry terminal in Trondheim – and sadly we would have to spend a few days in a hotel in downtown Trondheim while waiting for our return flight reservation back to Oslo and then London to work out! 🙂
