It was a day of mostly waterfalls, including two of the most famous in Norway — Bridal Falls and the Seven Sisters.
Bob has decided that global warming is not the cause of rising sea levels — it has to be all the output of the waterfalls in Norway!
After breakfast, we decided to visit the chocolate factory. It is not a factory in which you can observe the process but the chocolate is made downstairs from the shop where it is sold.
We were a little disappointed that we were not going to see a fjord from the water. Our itinerary from the tour company took care of that by scheduling a 65-minute ferry ride through the Geirangerfjord from Geiranger to Hellesylt. It is arguably the most beautiful fjord in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2005. More information here. It is considered both a ferry trip and a tour. The ferry was quite nice and had frequent announcements about what we were seeing.
You can see from the waterfall pictures that there is not anywhere to put a road. That was true through most of the fjord.

Looks like lots of beautiful places. Great pictures. Did anyone try the bleu cheese chocolate? How cold was it on the ferry (and in July)?
Check with you later on the chocolate.
Ferry was cold in the wind, very comfortable in the wind shadow of the boat.
