    Hjelmeland has many cute old houses that have been restored and this makes for a very nice stroll along the waterfront.

    A lot of people come to Hjelmeland by boat and the harbour jetty is beautifully set in wonderful surroundings.

    Hjelmeland lies on the main tourist route called "Ryfylkevegen" or Ryfylke Route, aka the main highway number 13. This is the second ferry you have to take after leaving Stavanger, and there are many more to come...

    One of the 2 local stores. The other one is in the mini-mall next to the ferry jetty. Interestingly, most stores used to be in the village centre (first photo on my intro page), but after the ferry jetty was moved so that through trafific did no longer pass through, just pass by, the stores moved as well. I guess you have to go where your customers are. This store, however, stays put.

    Favorite thing: Ranked among Norway's cheapest and best small banks. Only this head office, no branches, only one ATM, this one, they've withstoos the trend of merging and conglomeration.

    Favorite thing: It seems I have a penchant for town halls. They abound on my Norwegian VT pages, and why not? Most of them, like this one, were built in the early 60s, after a major restructuring/merging of Norwegian townships and municipalities.
