It’s been raining a lot this summer here in Norway. And I can count all the days we had the sun shining to our faces and warming our skins and giving some lovely tan. Not much outdoor activities for me when it’s raining cats and dogs
So far my family and I have managed to:
Then one time the sun came shining beautifully in the middle of the day, so we decided to go canoeing
and had a picnic around Rygge area.
Since I was the photographer, you only get to see my shadow here
Days have passed by then finally … good news: sunny weather on the 17th !!! One of my brothers called me and we agreed to meet in Tusenfryd Amusement Park. We were so excited, aside from the nice weather (not clear blue sky though MUCH better than rain), it was my kids first trip to this park. And on my end, I would finally get to see the “new” rides. Believe it or not, the last time I was in this park was during the first year it opened – which was decades ago…LOL…
Watched a bit of circus while relaxing…
Playing with my cute 8 month old nephew.
I just stood and waited (quite long) to take some shots and video of these guys, but I had so much fun. Look at these facial expressions …. priceless… LOL
Time to go tracking for some adventure at “Eventyrstien” and stumble on some trolls…
Getting ready to head home – the park closes at 7pm – but first, a ride in “Grandpa’s car”.
Lastly, a commercial shoot with Stabburet leverpostei (lever pâté) … ha..ha…ha…
What a marvelous day …. Moments definitely to be treasured
From an adventurous sunny day to a warm and serene trip… Last Thursday was the last time we enjoyed the sun – so far. We went to Jeløy and visited a place called Edith’s Garden.
It was a beautiful day for a stroll esp. in a place such as this. We ate cakes and pastries in their cozy café,
had some ice cream in their garden and watched the kids play,
visited some galleries around the area …
and admired a vintage truck we found along the way.
We drove to a Hotel/Restaurant a few miles away to have an early dinner. A truly splendid place with delicious cuisine! They even got a Rolls Royce waiting for us to give us a tour around the area!!!
That was of course just a joke We didn’t reserve the RR. It was only parked there coincidently so I could have a photo taken beside it … lol
Perhaps the Fendi shades, Bulgari and Tiffany bracelets, necklace and ring from Briel might somehow go with Rolls Royce, but my Radcliffe dress, Skechers ballerina flats, Friis&Co. bag and fabulous looking bangles from a flea market absolutely didn’t. The photo was nice though..ha..ha..ha…
A little stroll in the garden after a delicious dinner, then it was time to go home. Indeed a delightful day, it was!!!
The summer season is not over yet. We still have a month – well so I hope, but I wish the rain would go away and come again some other day ’cause we certainly want more of these glorious days
A wonderful weekend to all …..
