Mefjordvær is a little fishing village on north-west Senja. It boasts a panoramic view of a mountain wall that plunges into the ocean. Mefjordvær has medieval church history and wooden artefacts that resemble St Olav which are kept at Oslo University.

Ten points if you can guess what the poles are for!

Good try!  (I would have said for seagulls! lol.)

The poles are the beginnings of a fisherman’s pier which is usually used for hanging nets and drying fish.  The poles are left in the water to settle.  They sink further down over time.  The tides also help the poles wiggle down to a firm base.  When they are firmly embeded, the builder then continues the construction.
