Weekend Reflections #85






This is traditionally a shelter where the fishermen would hang up their fishing nets to dry. I'm not quite sure if it's still in use. This one is located in a small inlet from Rolvsfjord near Bergen.
I asked my husband if he knew why they would place this structure on an island, away from their house; they might need to mend the nets once they were dry, and then they had to get in their boat to get to them. To which he replied: Maybe that was the only way they could get some work done in peace, away from the wife! :-))) LOL!
