KRIA, a beauty from the south.





















A beauty from the south, a Colin Archer boat made in Randesundet (near Kristiansand) back in 1983.
The couple had had her for 15 years and enjoyed lots of nice holidays & trips.
I met Astrid and John on Sunday, and I have to say that KRIA looked very well kept.

They told me that there is more info. on "Finn", and yes, the photos are a lot better than my snapshot, so do take a look if you know the site and are interested.

Antique market.





















This weekend there is a big event at Figgjohallen, south of Stavanger.
An eldorado for collectors and buyers of all things collectable, vintage, retro and of course antique.

So nice to take a look.

This is Ellen Ørnes. She has been the number one on Norwegian TV, as well as writing in magazines and her own books telling about all things that have to do with the different periods and styles etc.

For those who wanted a valuation of old items there were opportunities to do so.
People came from many places in Norway to show and sell from their collections.

Yellow door.





















Number 2 is a white wooden house.
The entrance door is bright YELLOW, and that I like!

In Norwegian I would have said: Gult er kult.
Which means: Yellow is cool.
Anyway, it sounds better and it rhymes in Norwegian

Have a good weekend!

LYKKELAND.


















The filming of "LYKKELAND" finished in Stavanger yesterday.
It is a film about what happened in the 1960's when our city changed in to the OIL CITY.
Hopefully we will see it on NRK in the autumn of 2018.
There will be 8 TV episodes, and there are still lots of work to be done.
Filming abroad is on the agenda now.

Here you see two stylish men, Mr.Rakovic and Mr.Sandvik.
They worked as film extras and I had the pleasure to see them and others in action.
