There is hope though. We are in May and the national day is on the coming Monday. Every school will be participating in the parades with flags and songs, orchestras will be playing and the weather will be great. Yeah right! At least it is a day where we can eat as many hotdogs and ice creams as we want.....(don't tell me it applies to kids only!!!)
Here are some photos from previous summers from both the south and north of Norway.
|Søgnefjorden, south, summer -04|
|Søgnefjorden - the red houses are just for boat equipment...I think...|
|Sjøhuset, Kristiansand (where we live) - a popular restaurant|
|Sørvågen, north of Norway, summer -04, we stayed in one of the red "rorbu" on the right side of the picture.|
These days they are renovated for tourists to stay in. Very popular and recommended.
|Tromsø, north of Norway, summer -04|
|The midnight sun. Didn't get through the sky but still beautiful.|
|Djupfjorden, north of Norway -04|
|Reinefjorden, north of Norway - 04|
