(First days of Haugesund Today)
Haugesund today
The intention of this page is to distribute a fresh snapshot from Haugesund, normally on a daily basis. Haugesund town has no automatic web-camera, but Eirik Hustvedt carry his digital camera with him when driving around visiting customers all around Haugalandet.  This page is part of Eirik Hustvedt's theme-pages: Church organs in Haugesund. At the bottom of the page, you'll find links to other Haugesund-pages and information-sites.

Anything you want to see?
Send Eirik Hustvedt an email with your picturewishes, and he will do his best to take your picture from the Haugesund-area!
