A Hot Saturday in Oslo - Norway

We have had two weeks now with warm weather here at 60 degrees North - around the Oslofjord.
Air: 30 C plus and Sea: 20-22 C

We could go swimming. Both Anna and Solvi. (Anna in Blue Bikini)

Her I'm propelling in the Big Blue. Ha-ha - still like a kid in the Water.

Then after, preparing a meal at the Summerhouse Platform: (A meal dedicated the Light, Summer and Climate)

Starting with Avocados - with Wolf Fish caviar and Mayonaise in the bottom

Then our main dish. Ready to be served, with olive and grain bread.

But, what are the ingredients?

A cold Salad. Let's go back in time. What's here? Every ingredients but the dressing.

Enlarge to have a clue. OK?

And even before: Crispy lettuce. Hard boiled eggs. Tomatoes. Fresh Garlic.

Some boiled ham (mild) plus boiled potetoes and a Camera and a tiny Chair.

A dressing based on Natural Yughurt and French Dijon Mustard. And some Pine Nuts.

What could be better during a Warm Summer Evening?

What to drink? Fresh Water or White Wine or the both. We did have both. The White Wine was a crispy Sauvignon Blanc.

A Fantastic evening, sitting on the platform watching over the fjord and all the Boats. It was really crowded out there. But that's another story.

Sunday afternoon it was Sebastian's 7th BD. Like X-Mas for him.
(that's another Story as well)

btw: My regular readers: We are on track to recover from our loss. May be I'll soon visit your wonderful site soon again. Miss you all.

Oh it's beautiful and the food looks yummy. We also have had hot weather, and tonight we grilled outside so we didn't have to heat up the house.
I've been in the puppy pool with the dogs and made a short video on
Hugs to you and Anna!

I can imagine myself waking up at 3.59 to catch the sunrise and staying late to see the sunset, that's so wonderful :D

That is such a beautiful spot and view! How I envy you! We are not quite swimming yet but I bet some are after this recent heat wave.
Glad you are somewhat back on track and can experience the joy of your summer house.

Northern Europe has all the sun and Spain has to be content with 22ºC (air) and don't ask me about the water temperature, I don't go in before it is at least 25ºC!
How wonderful you are enjoying such fantastic days, and I see you are not starving either :)

Hi Tor.
It was so good to come here and see that life can still smile at you, though I suppose you still have hard days and times.

The salad looks great.
