Rettelser 24. mars 2021

I juni var vi en tur på hytta på Emblem utenfor Ålesund.

Det er frodig der,
men turen fra Oslo tar for lang tid til å holde hagen velstelt.

Ålesund (Norwegian pronunciation: [ˈôːləsʉn] (About
                    this soundlisten)) is a municipality
in Møre og Romsdal County, Norway. It is part of the traditional district of Sunnmøre and the centre of the Ålesund Region.
The town of Ålesund is the administrative centre of Ålesund Municipality,
as well as the principal shipping town of the Sunnmøre district.
The town is a sea port and is noted for its concentration of Art Nouveau architecture.
Although sometimes internationally spelled by its older name Aalesund,
this spelling is obsolete in Norwegian. However, the local football club
Aalesunds FK still carries that spelling, having been founded before the
official change.

Legend has it that Gangerolf (outside of Norway better known as Rollo),
the 10th-century founder of the dynasty of the dukes of Normandy,
hailed from the community of Giske, north-west of Ålesund. At least three
statues of Rolle exist: in the town park in Ålesund, in the city of Rouen,
France, and in Fargo, North Dakota, United States.

In 1835, Ålesund had 482 inhabitants. By 1900, the population had
increased to 11,777.

In the night of 23 January 1904, the town was the scene of the Ålesund
Fire, one of the most terrible of the many conflagrations to which
Norwegian towns, once built largely of wood, have been subjected.
Practically the entire town was destroyed during the night, a gale
aiding the flames, and the population had to leave the town in the middle
of the night with only a few minutes' notice. Only one person died in the
fire, the 76-year-old Ane Heen, but more than 10,000 people were left
 without shelter

Jugendstilsenteret - The Art Nouveau Centre of Norway
Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany had often been on vacation to Sunnmøre. After the fire, he sent
four warships with materials to build
temporary shelters and barracks.
After a period of planning, the town was rebuilt
in stone, brick, and mortar in Jugendstil (Art Nouveau), the architectural style of the time.
The structures were designed by approximately
20 master builders and 30 Norwegian architects,
most of them educated in Trondheim and Charlottenburg, Berlin,
drawing inspiration from all over Europe.
To honor Wilhelm, one of the most frequented
streets of the town is named after him.

The town has an unusually consistent architecture, most of the
buildings having been built between 1904 and 1907.
Jugendstilsenteret is a national interpretation centre, visitors
can learn more about the town fire, the rebuilding of the town
and the Art Nouveau style. Ålesund is a partner in the Art
nouveau network, a European network of co-operation created
in 1999 for the study, safeguards and development of the
Art nouveau.
The term "Little London" was often applied to the community
during the occupation of Norway by Nazi Germany due to the
Norwegian resistance work that took place here. Among other
things, the city was central to the flights to Scotland and England.

Bersethuset er godt likt av måkene i byen.
Vi tok med båten tilbake til Oslo. Den ble ikke brukt lenger på hytta.

I juli tok vi en ny tur på hytta.

På veien stoppet vi noen dager på Høvringen.

Vi fikk noen fine dager på fjellet.

Kirsten og Elling Wiik ble med oss en tur på byfjellet Aksla.
Her der de sammen med Karl Martin på Rundskue.
Tårnet var en gave fra utflytta ålesundere til byens 100 års jubileum i 1948,
etter et initiativ fra den lokalpatriotiske foreningen "ålesunderen".

Orust (Swedish pronunciation: [ˈûːrɵst])[ is an island in western Sweden,
and Sweden's third largest island. In 2014 Statistics Sweden declared it to
instead be the fourth largest island, under a definition which adds artificial
canals to the possible bodies of water surrounding an island.
It has been noted that under this definition, all of Götaland would be the
country's largest island, rendering Orust instead the fifth largest.

The largest town on Orust is Henån, the municipal capital, where
approximately 1,800 inhabitants live.
Other communities, many of which are fishing villages, include Ellös, Edshultshall, Hälleviksstrand, Mollösund, Morlanda, Stocken,
Svanesund, Svanvik and Varekil. Orust is home to approximately 15,160 inhabitants in the winter and many more in the summer. Its main industry
is the shipyards, the two largest being Najadvarvet and Hallberg-Rassy.
