E-type Jaguar.

This is just a snapshot taken on the E39, heading north, close to the junction to Kvadrat/Sandnes.
It was a beauty out on the road. "I am pretty sure it is an E-type Jaguar" my husband said.
Perhaps he is right. One thing is for sure, now is the time to get them out on the road.... no rain the next few days.

A sign....

A sign can be so much more than "just a sign".
I like this creative and artistic sign to show where to find the Botanical Garden.
Unfortunately, the artist is unknown and not mentioned on the sign.

Car accident.

Car accident late this afternoon....
Only one person involved, but the car did not look good,- even worse on the other side, with a barrier straight through the car!

Mathilde Christiane.

If you have been to Sola Strand Hotell, you might have noticed this; Mathilde Christiane, looking at you from the reception area. She was at the front of a Swedish shipwreck found back in 1822 on the coast just outside the hotel.

Suddenly snow this morning.

I was a bit surprised this morning by the amount of snow this late in April.

If you google "RUSS and NORWAY" you will find several images of people dressed in RED or BLUE clothes, decorated and looking quite strange to people who do not know what is going on.

Young people have started celebrating finishing their 13 years at school, that is the reason.

Some German tourists I met in town thought they were out demonstrating, but they are just having a good time at school and perhaps even more so outside the school.

These two young students Rut Elise and Katarina were out with the dogs.
They will be at the big RUSS event at KONGEPARKEN soon together with Russ from all over the country!

Newborn baby.

I went to the hospital this morning and while I was buying coffee at the entrance area, I noticed the little baby and her mother.

The mother told me that her baby girl was born on Thursday, so this cute little girl is only 3 days old.

Welcome to the world little girl!

May life treat you well!

Congratulations to her family with a new member.

Garden centres are open.

We are lucky to have several good garden centres in and outside Stavanger.
Easter is a good time to start preparing the garden for a new season.

Today was COLD again, with a bit of wind, plus a bit of
rain and snow in the air....

I bought herbs, colourful plants are next on my wish list....

Out on the beach today I noticed these two sporty happy teens, Hannah and Malene.
They were getting ready to surf out on the North Sea waves.

We have had a wonderful day.
Blue sky and lots of sunshine.

PS. YELLOW is GUL (in Norwegian)
For me, yellow is the colour of Easter.
Today, my photograph captures both the colour and the name (Gul).

Opening in 5 minutes.

The Irishman, the popular pub close to the Culture House is opening their doors in 5 minutes.

Looking nice and ready to have guests sitting outside too.

So many shops have closed / are closing for good in Østervåg.
What is wrong?
Do we use the shopping malls outside the city centre, and don't use the city for shopping anymore?
Thanks to Italian BENETTON who have sold nice warm and colourful clothes for years.
The last few years there has been too much "Sisley" in the shop, so they have not earned much on me as a customer.

Ilse Jacobsen, Tommy Hilfiger are two other brands have also
given up.
Shopping malls or internet?

A Sunny Sunday.

Sunshine and a bit of warmth today.
People enjoying coffee etc. from the bakery.

(The sign and text is "similar" to an old Christian Easter song by Grundtvig.)

An old beauty in town.

Normally it is on bright sunny days that we can be lucky enough to see beautiful old cars out on the roads.

But yesterday was one of the rainy wet and windy ones.
Suddenly this old beauty passed me.

I think it will fit with the "WET" Theme Day photos.
For other images take a look here:
