So after arriving in Bergen we had a very nice dinner at Bryggeloftet & Stuene in Bryggen – very good food. We were sat in the window so had a good view out to watch the harbour and had a lovely meal.

The last day of 2016 we walked about in the rain. Joe wanted to do some shopping so we had a look around, but didn’t really do much. Back to the room to dress for dinner. We had made a reservation for dinner at the hotel before we left on the cruise, so headed down for a drink before dinner, then prosciutto at 7pm, then into dinner around 7:30. Four courses and it took until about 11:30, so a slow pace. It was really nice and the food was excellent. We then went out on the restaurant balcony over the harbour and watched the fireworks all over Bergen. They were going off on the hill on the other side – up past Bryggen – but the main display was just down the harbour from us and we had an excellent view. Then there was a display up on Mount Fløyen, then more down the harbour. We had a good half hour of really nice fireworks to see in 2017. Then to bed.

Today was lovely and sunny. We got up and had breakfast (a small breakfast as still full from dinner!) then went to the funicular railway to go up to the top of Mount Fløyen. There was snow and ice at the top, which you couldn’t see from the bottom! Joe got several shots of the town from the overlook and we had a good walk around. I saw a red squirrel! Then we walked back down taking our time and seeing everything. Sun going down now but we’ll probably have a quiet night in. Museums tomorrow!
