It is our National Day today.





















Today I have seen many beautiful national costumes, we call them BUNAD.
Here you see a male "bunad" on one of todays models.
He was out with his pet pig, GOLIAT, who was happy to be out celebrating and sniffing around.
Goliat was also decorated with a ribbon in red-white-blue.

Some people start their barbecue season today, and most children are allowed to eat as much ice cream as they can manage.

Rain and sunshine.
There are always lots of things happening around the whole country, and celebrations going on at schools, with family and friends, out on oil rigs as well as abroad when we celebrate our 17.MAI / Norways National Day.

A belated wish for a Happy National Day. You found a good model for the photo, and you composed the dual portrait very nicely.
