A quick stop in the village of Råkvåg

Last post from our day trip to the Fosen peninsula in the heat last week. We made a quick stop in old fishing village of Råkvåg on our way back to Trondheim. Råkvåg is a small village of 238 inhabitants (as of 2013), but has some tourism because of the old fishing wharves there. In Råkvåg one can find the largest collection of wharves outside a city in Norway. It is considered one of the best preserved smaller places in Norway. The fjord there was one of the best for herring fishing. The museum there was unfortunately about to close when we were there, so this is all the background information I have. Still it was a beautiful to just go for a stroll among the houses and wharves.
