Downtown Stavanger

We decided that the boys would most likely not enjoy walking around downtown Stavanger, so Craig, Mayra, Lily and I went downtown for a jaunt today. It rained early but cleared up into a nice day. We toured the old neighborhood of Stavanger, where the houses date back to the early 1800's. We also went to the Domkirke and showed them the old Anglican cathedral that is at the center of Stavanger Sentrum. We introduced ourselves to this year's cignets...there were four born to the old swan couple downtown this year.
We ended our day walking along the harbor and then going to the Oil Museum. Craig and Mayra have both worked/work for oil companies with holdings here in the Stavanger area, so it was very interesting. Craig was able to share some of his stories from when he was traveling out on the offshore oil rigs in the North Sea off the coast of Norway in 2001. We had a great time.
