Boat Tour of Oslo, Norway

Faith and I took a boat tour of Oslo and the "fjords." Oslo doesn't really have proper fjords, but it was a nice, scenic tour of the area and a very nice day.

A mini-update. The area is called Oslofjord and it is not considered a fjord in the geological sense, but rather it simply means "waterway" or in this case "bay". No false advertising here, merely false cognates (or "false friends" as a cunning linguist I knew referred to them).

I was in Oslo from May 21-24, 2015.
