Diesel Ship Kysten - Toensberg, Norway
The Diesel Ship Kysten is tied up at the historic dockside in Toensberg, Norway, My Honey's first home town.
Keep in mind that we were using much older digital cameras back then, but it is fun to see the tour, the food offered during the trip, and the inside of the ship. Catherine is wearing the white jacket, My Honey is wearing a medium blue shirt, and I'm wearing a dark blue shirt. Long before I started blogging in 2009 here on Blogspot, I posted images to my own web site for family and friends. Our family stretched across two continents so the Internet was a great way for us to stay connected.
And, there is more: My husband worked on Kysten briefly many years ago when he was home on vacation from working at sea and attending Maritime Marine Engineering school. While working at sea he saved his money to attend school while home on vacation to become a Maritime Marine Engineer, licensed to be Chief Engineer on any size or type ship on any ocean. Yes, I am proud of him.
There are wonderful memories connected to this old ship.
Wikipedia site, but it is in Norwegian, also.
