That's My World - Bergen city

I have had some day of from work and today i vent for a morning walk. It has been a cold but sunny day, and we have been out for two long walks today.

First of all, a picture from my neighborhood. As you can see, the sun is shining..

This next 4 pictures are of a monument for the Norwegian sea trawlers who trough all time since the Vikings, in War and peace had their work and living at sea.
It's a seven meter high monument located at Torgallmenningen. Made by Dyre Vaa (1903-1980) in 1950. Consists of 12 statues and four relief in two heights.
