Thank you for the music!

We sat outside the coffee place at Hå Gamle Prestegård,
and suddenly heard the piano music and 8 men singing (They had arrived with their motorcycles)

Just like these kids we were drawn to the room.

Thank You for the music!

A nice memory from this years summer.

Tomorrow it is SEPTEMBER!

A feel of summer again today.

A bit of country life left in town.

I had never heard about the TROLL PENIS rock, until the paper wrote about it after someone somehow managed to get it down! Even international papers wrote about TROLLPIKKEN as it is also named.
Now when it is back on, more and more people are taking the walk up in the mountains to see it, and perhaps to have their photo taken when they are climbing on it.

If you are in the area, head south of Stavanger, and it is close to Egersund.
I recommend good waterproofed shoes, and to start early.
Nice walk when the wheater is good.

This is the book JENS, that was published less than a year ago.
It is about Jens Stoltenberg, written by him, who also has been our prime minister here in Norway. And who now is the Secretary General for NATO.

Strange that the book is already on sale as low as-70%, and I find it amusing that it happens less than 3 weeks before the election.

The Labour Party is not doing very well these days.... so I guess they have to work hard to change their position and the government.

More yellow in town.

More yellow...
Looking up...
Sunny day!

Afternoon sunshine and rain.
AIDA looks like a big beauty!
She came from Ulvik and is heading for Kiel after a stop in Stavanger.

Double rainbow.

We have a mixture of sunshine and plenty of rain.
Yesterday morning I was out in the car when I suddenly discovered a double rainbow.
I am so pleased every time  I see rainbows.
This is a photo taken with my iPhone.

What does the fox say?

This is a vintage plate from the 1960´s named "The fox" and decorated by Ridley Borchgrevink.
It is one of the trendy vintage things that young people are collecting from Stavangerflint.

(Well, I have only seen one real fox in my life, and that was at a parking area next to a tube station in the north of London.)

A few years back we had Ylvis with this Norwegian
song ( English text)  playing all the time:

Happy weekend!

Happy weekend wherever you are.

Touring Europe.

As most of you know, we have some very narrow roads here in Norway.
This is the biggest RV I have seen this summer. The Canadian couple who owned it had the car towed behind it. Inside they had a boat.... And they were heading to the Stavanger region, so drive carefully if you meet them. It is huge!

PS. I did not tell them about all the roadworks, nor about the fact that Stavanger is the Norwegian city with most roundabouts.

I hope they have a great time and that they will see lots of sunny days too.

Sunshine and rain

It is a mixture of RAIN & SUNSHINE.

Biker tour.

They had all been working in different African countries with various jobs such as aid workers.
Six of them were Swedish and two came from Norway.
For eleven years now, they have had an annual MC tour.
This time they were touring in Norway, and as some of them said, these trips are a real highlight of the year, something to always look forward to.
"Grabbarna" as they referred themselves to, had high spirits, and even gave a "private piano and song concert" at the coffee place at Hå Gamle Prestegård.
It was a pleasure to meet you all!
Safe journey on the wet Norwegian roads, because today it has been pouring down most places on the south west coast of Norway.

Closed doors.
The tourist information has moved!

More rain ...

Plenty of rain and a bit of sunshine today!
Several old wooden boats are around the harbour this weekend.
It is a big event and some boats will do trips out on the fjord for those who would like to use the opportunity.

Enjoy your weekend!

Jörg and Silvia from Vienna

This is Jörg and Silvia from Vienna /Austria.
They had arrived in Oslo a few days back, and had picked up their UK registered rental Campervan there, before heading south, and yesterday going to Lysebotn (a popular destination for many tourists in this area).

Nice talking with you.
I hope you enjoy Stavanger!
The weather is not so good, and I guess you are pleased for not sleeping in a tent just now.

Roots are important.

Just to show you an image of how important ROOTS can be in life.

An image taken at the Sandnes area on one of my many walks.

I am not sporty.... just try to keep walking, no matter what the days are like.

More flowers.

This time from the colourful "Fargegaten,"
or Øvre Holmegate, if you look for it on the map.
