Ice cream.
















The driver of an ice-cream van waiting for the ferry to Tou.
Today it was sunny and slightly warmer, so a bit warmer now, and I am ready for my favourite ice lolly.

In Norwegian Is = ice-cream.

Number 913













Number 913 is delivering beer to one of the many pubs-bars-restaurants near the harbour.
Munkholm is a low alcohol beer from the brewery Ringnes in Oslo.

After all the rain we were lucky to get a bit of sunshine today.
Blustery wind and +14C.

Why?





















Why do some people have a strong need to put their signature on walls like here?

A very rainy Midsummer Celebration in the Stavanger Region..





















It is Midsummer's Eve.

We have some good food and cold drinks on the table soon.

Outside it is like this: http://pent.no/forecast/Stavanger;58.96530;5.71796

It is probably as empty as this image shows in some of the parking areas in town.

School holidays have started and many people have gone on holiday or away for the weekend.

I hope YOU are just where you want to be to celebrate Midsummer's Eve or
St.Hans, as we call it.

Cat lover?
















Perhaps a cat and a cat lover is living up there?
Or perhaps several cats and cat lovers are living there?

8 YEARS...





















I celebrated 8 years of blogging this afternoon, with coffee and cake in the kitchen.

8 YEARS WITH BLOGGING.

EVERY DAY A NEW PHOTO.

Thanks to all of you who take time with commenting and "likes".

Thanks to fellow bloggers who do the same, or have another type of blog, which I find inspiring.

Thanks to fellow bloggers who I have met over the years, some several times, like Mo in London.

HAVE A NICE SUMMER EVERYONE!

Fina vere!




















It is dialect and that can be difficult.... but the message is clear:
From where you find this wall, there is just walking distances to all what you need in town.

I guess it has to do with getting more people using the centre, instead of going to shopping malls.

Smoking.


















Less people are smoking, and there are rules and regulations in Norway.
Still possible to smoke outside restaurants, but not always popular.

The old "sign" ( Smoking forbidden) that I saw at the air show last weekend, reminded me about the old days when the smokers could smoke most places.

I guess it is the same many places in Europe now.

The adder.





















This is the only adder I have seen this year, and I am out walking every day....

HAPPY MONDAY!




















It is a bit of rain in the air and +12C.

Today I will show you just a snapshot taken one early morning in one of the narrow little roads in the city centre.

I know the feeling.... just HAVE TO find out what is happening in the book I am reading.
So when the woman came walking towards me.... I grabbed my mobile phone in the pocket, and caught the moment.

What was she reading? Jo Nesbø

I hope she will forgive me for publishing this, without asking her.
It just made me so happy to see a person so occupied with READING.

So what are you reading at the moment?

I am reading Elena Ferrante's book " Historia om set nye namnet" ( book number 2)

The Air Show is over for 2017.

















This is another photo from SOLA AIRSHOW 2017.
The plane and people represented the Royal Netherlands Air Force, and they are heading back home tomorrow morning.

The airshow has been a success and the weather has been good.
I have never seen so many men with huge cameras, lenses that looked like they belonged to paparazzi....

They must have got some great action shots!

Sola Airshow 2017












No rain today!
Perfect for the SOLA AIRSHOW this weekend!

Lots of people inside, and lots of people watching outside from all around the airport.

This weekend there will be plenty of planes at the airport.

Sad news.)

Pet XL and Igroom Spa.
















Pet XL is the name of a new shop that opened their doors this week at Forus.
It was started by some enthusiasts who are aiming to open several more shops in other Norwegian cities.

The shop is huge, and I will definitely be back for some shopping.

What I thought was great was the fact that they had included a spa for dogs, and will have a vet there too.

The owner of the Igroom Spa had a cute customer that looked like it was just a pleasure to be there.

SUMMER is here.
















It is the first day in June.
The sun is shining, and l hope we will have a nice long sunny summer!
This cute car reminds me of  summer days.

I will be pleased if someone can translate the text in the window.
