Last week I had been told that it would be good for me to eat less and move more. So, when the weather was quite nice yesterday, I decided I would finally do my walking tour of Haugesund. I had wanted to do it for ages, but had always found excuses not to do it. Yesterday I waved all excuses away and told myself quite sternly to get a grip, get my shoes and get going! And I even listened to myself!!
The first two photos are of Harald Hårfagre (Harald Fairhair). It's a statue that has recently been re-erected at the viewpoint where it stands. He was a Viking king who lived in the 9th and 10th century and strived to unite all the provinces of Norway. Which he did as far as I know. In the top photo you can see that he is holding a helmet. Contrary to popular belief, Vikings didn't have horns on their helmets! And his hair certainly looks great.
Perhaps that's why there are so many hairdressers in Haugesund!
