I've been so busy since returning from our cruise last week, but I did manage to download the photos to the PC, so I thought I would share a few with you. The scenery was fantastic.
This was taken on our last trip ashore at Kristiensand - The trip we did was called the WW11 experience. This gun is placed on the most southerly part of Norway and was put the there by the Germans when they invaded Norway in 1940. There was also a similar gun placed opposite on Denmark, together these guns covered most of the entrance to the Baltic Sea, making it very nearly impossible for anything to travel into these waters during the war. We then went onto visit the place when the SS set up it's headquarters in Norway, where there is now a museum to the Norwegian resistance, and also the dungeons where the SS carried out there interrogations on the Norwegians. During their occupation there were over 2000 people killed by the SS and those that were not killed were taken to work camps in Poland. It was a very moving experience. The week was over far too soon, but we had a fantastic time. I hope that I've not bored you with the photos. If you click onto them they will enlarge.
Thanks for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
