Hi to you all,
I sent this greeting to friends and family in Norway (who had everything from -3C to -19C at the time) to cheer them up a bit and to remind them that there will be a new summer some time...
You may need a bit of cheer up yourself if you are stuck in the office during this great summer!
I really enjoyed visiting Devonport. It is close to the city, but still a small world away when it comes to the more quiet lifestyle than city life can bring.
To arrive in Devonport felt a little bit like childhood summer holidays when you arrive and just know that there is a whole lifetime of time off coming. The houses and wooden fences are white and it reminds me a lot of the houses and towns in southern Norway which actually have rules about what colors you can paint your house in (read: white, white and more white!)
Here are some more pictures:

A very welcoming bench by the ferry building in Devonport.
The cushion says "enjoy" so twist my arm then... :0)
Art Of This World Gallery - great art shop in Devonport
A tree to climb...
After seeing this tree, I understand where
Peter Jackson got some of the inspiration for
the Lord of the Ring movies.
Ready to go...
Lovely, white houses
Summer greetings from Torhild
