The Oslo opera house

Afternoon sailing with an old friend turned into a sightseeing event, as the only wind we had for an hour and a half was a few minutes of light air. It lasted long enough though to move us from safely drifting in Lysakerfjorden, right into the shipping lane with a ferry approaching, before it died down again. That was the moment we gave up sailing and went sightseeing instead.
