Boats on Mondays

We did a walk around in Oslo Harbour with our Dutch friends some weeks ago.

Suddenly we came across this boat. Have you ever seen a boat with such shapes and forms and wings? You can read about the Earthrace here. They have a biodiesel engine and they will try to go around the world in 65 days.

For the time beeing the boat is on a promotion tour in Europe. If you want, you can enter the boat, for a certain amount of Money. You can follow where it is on it's promo-tour on it's homepage.

At first, I had to wipe my eyes, I'm tired so I thought I saw wrong... What a funny shaped boat yes! I can't really decide if I think it's ugly or cool.... I think I must get used to seeing it first.

Around the world in 65 days sounds insane. I wouldn't want to do that, more like around the world in 65000 days.... *giggles*

Good night, I'm going to fall backwards into the bed now, we have a very special day to wake up to :-)

Tor, my son is very fascinated with boats and wants to design them when he is grown. He was quite impressed with this one!

Looks like a giant junk sculpture! I much prefer a canoe! (Well, maybe not to go around the world in!)
