Hege with one of the trollies of luggage. I had another so there was plenty to push around.
Hot!!!! Very very Hot!!!!! We have been in Bergen now for over a week and the weather during that time has been absolutly fantastic with very little breeze to cool things down. Since being home here we have had a couple of trips into town for shopping and a few walks and also have been able to lend a hand helping Chris and Hege to do some landscaping down on the bottom lawn. Also keeping Lilly occupied as she is still on school holidays. Last Friday night we all spent out at the cabin with Rune and Lillen and as the weather was so hot we spent a lot of time in the water. It is always so nice out there, the piece and quite and the scenery just lends itself to relaxing. Went out fishing into the north sea, in the evening and then on Saturday we all went down the fiord by boat to a village with a coffee shop and then kept going until we had completely gone around the large island that the cabin is on. Sunday was Lillys birthday celebration here at home in Bergen, with friends and their parents coming for the afternoon. It is
Lilly decided when we got home that she would have a few of her princess's and prince's to have a tea party with Nana.
always special for us to be here for Lilly or Stellas birthdays. We are so enjoying the catch up time with the kids and they grow so fast and develop so much in the time that we don't see them. Stella at 3 is quite the character and has a very good sense of humor. Lilly of course is going into her 2nd year at school and is quite the young lady, already very fashion conscious. Her english is very good and it certainly helps when Nana and Pops are struggling to explain some thing to some one when we are out and about. Today, Wednesday the rain has come but only for a day, then it is meant to return to fine and hot. Every one has been enjoying the weather and keep telling us that this is the longest spell they have had for years. On Friday we go to Stavanger for a few days. It is about a 3 to 4 hour drive with a couple of ferry crossings included . New country for us so looking forward to it. Hope all is well with every one who reads this. Pip/Rod
In 2012 I retired after 43 years in retail and am now living the dream of following the sun. For some years I have travelled to Norway to visit our son and his family and now I am retired and have more time at my disposal I can include other adventures. In 2012 I had a fantastic experience sailing from Croatia, through the Greek Islands to Turkey. In the coming years I hope to continue seeing more of the world. ... full info
