TORs - August 30 - My last post

Dear readers,

the headline is correct.
This is my last post.
Sorry. I'm fond of you all.
It's been a blast.
But time changes.
I have been a blogger for one year Friday August 31.
Everything has an end.
I'm not able to change that.
My last story is from our Canoe tour last Saturday.
In the Wilderness and the sound of Nature and the paddles.

1) Friday, August 24 - 2007 - Norway, South East:

Radio/TV/Internet: Weatherforcast for Saturday, August 25: Variable - may be showers, may be Sunny, may be windy, may be chilly, maybe maybe maybe...

2) Still Friday early evening:
To cold to sit out at the Platform.

We lit up the fireplace - old newspapers and wood. Cold and humid. At least we tried to have a pleasant time in front of our tiny fireplace. But fire? No, only smoke. You know, not up into the chimney - but directly down and into our small "livingroom". Smokealarm - piiiiiip .

At least the 3 of them worked according to product descriptions. Not bad. But it's a hell for your ears to stop that noise ----

3) August 25 - Saturday:

4) 6 am: Sunny - 14 C

5) 7 am: Sunny - 15 C - some wind

6) 8 am: Sunny - 15 C - still windy

7) 9 am: Sunny - temp? We slept again


8) b11 am: Sunny - 20 C - hmm - what to do?

9) 12 am: Sunny - 20 C - Brunch

10) 12:30 am: Sunny: 20C - Canoe on top of the Car

11) 1:30 pm: 20 C - changing wind directions - Started canoeing in the wilderness - on the Lakes

Then: 4 hours completly incorporated with the nature. Only the sounds of birds, some amphiums - queck-queck, insects, jumping fishes - splash, a moose, flowers, waterfalls, wild blueberies, partridgeberries, cloudberries, crowberies, windsounds from the leafes of the different trees.....

12) and a beach for our own - skinny dipping - *giggles*

13) 6 pm: Shopping - the tiny grocery store did not have our cats fav's

13.5) 6:30 pm: 17 C - Time for Cat feeding and some moister lotion

That was the end of my year as a blogger.

Please enjoy our tour into to unknown:

Here you can see Anna's Croc - to the left. But where is Anna?

In the Lake of course. To cold for me to swim. Besides, if we both were in the water at the same time; who could take this photo?

Anna, prepared for the return to "civilisation":

Returning over the lower lake. Can you feel the silence and the sound of nature?

Well, this was my last post in my first year as a blogger. Goodbye.

PS. See you in my second year as a blogger, I hope. Starting August 31-2007

Tor, how could you! I've been away for a few days and look what happens. I was filled with sadness - until I reached the end of the post, and then I was filled with... something else :)

What a relief!

Blogger Gattina said... (furious stammering!!and can't find the right four letter word !!!!) are you crazy !!! I almost got a heart attack and thought you dived into a deep depression ! But only Anna was diving and in water not in depression ! How dare you even to think about a "last post" it sounded like your "last words" !
Congratulations to your 1st year of blogging and the fact that I met you (and you me)and I am happy to hear that you will start your 2nd year and I hope many others ! Don't forget we have an appointment when we are 80 !!

I was feeling rather sad that you had decided to be a non-blogger, but now that I read your last sentence I am happy again! I knew you couldn't quit, you enjoy it too much! And how would we ever find out about the adventures of Rosa and Felicia and Stompa without your input?? Good luck for your second blog year, may you make many new friends and enjoy many conversations all over the world!

Love you blog!

Have a great weekend!

Kind regards from England.

yeah glad I didn't have a heart attack here..

Glad I found out it was your 2nd year now! And yes you do have a sense of humour, but I'm thinking you guys have been away too long.

This looks identical to our canoeing experience! Such similar beauty and rustic scenery. I'm sure I'd love it there...although your water might be a tad colder than ours! Anna ia brave.
