The King is happy to be on tour again, and Nordmøre seemed to be just as excited when Queen Sonja and King Harald started the tour in the county of Møre og Romsdal Wednesday.
Glorious weather and gaily decorated Nordmøre expected the two when they landed in the idyllic coastal municipality of Aure this morning. The Royal couple arrived from the king's ship which had anchored out in the bay. According to their habit are the royal couple staying on board on even in this county visit. From the pier the journey went by horse ride to Aure church, where there was real festival, with bands, drill girls, choir and speeches.
- It's incredibly nice to be on County visit again. The Queen and I do many exciting things in the course of a year. But some of the things we're looking forward to every year, are these trips with the king's ship, where we have a few intense days with the opportunity to become acquainted with 5-6 municipalities in one of the counties, said King Harald in his speech.
