Every little town has a (hi)story

Melsomvik is a cooperative community building a better future from themselves, they came together to create a space to spend their long days in their short summer. Right across the bay from an ex-whaling station they placed their diving platforms.

On the path to the new area, is this antique bell. It was to alert for fires as streets were narrow and locals were worried with the industrial area close by. The industry was to repair ships that chased, found and hunt big whales in the Arctic a couple of hundred years ago.
