Norwegian Travels – Views From the Sandvika/Edøy Ferry

We stayed for a week this past summer on a small, flat island off the west coast of Norway called Smøla. To get there, we took a ferry from Sandvika to the island of Edøya, which is connected to the outer lying island of Smøla by bridges. It was an overcast day but the views of the mountains in the east contrasted with the flatness of the islands in the west were dramatic.
