Childhood Friends

What is better than visit a childhood Friend?

I did from Monday afternoon to Tuesday afternoon. Of course, Anna was invited too. We had a blast.

An unforgetable gathering and meal in the afternoon and early evening Sunshine.

You see my friend? A man can do more than one thing at the same time. The old Myth is hereby declared dead. Understood?
Selfpicked Blue Mussels and Rasberries (both wild and cultivated) among others. Here we are with Rasberries. In the evening. Some Coffee and beverages from a certain District in France starting with the letter "C".

We stayed outside and talked and talked. And Talked and Talked. Never ending.
Suddenly I looked down to the Oslofjord, and on the Evening Ferry sailing from Oslo to Denmark (I don't like the design of this ship)

As said, we had a blast:
Even the Moon went Crazy. "Moonshine"? Haha. Not at all, it is just how the moon looked this Moonday Night. Have you seen the Moon like this where you live? If not, you have to visit Norway.
Here, looking up North - ooopss - it's Night. If you click and enlarge you can see the Holmenkollen Ski Jump. This Photo is taken around Midnight.

We sat on the platform talking until 7 am, I think. Then we felt asleep. Photo taken by the Security Cam. Who else? We had water with lemon the last hours. Refreshing.
The next Day: All our women were out in the Sunshine. The 4 of them. Did we miss something?

That's how it is when old pals meet. Even men can Talk.

Have a great time. My next post will be from Mariestad. So stay tuned.

Yea, you had a blast for sure and I'm happy for you. Glad you took a pic of the moon - if not, they might have not believed you :lol:

Self picked Blue Mussels!! Sounds delicious!

Welcome over tomorrow - we are looking forward to see you both!

It looks like you had quite a special time TorAa....You are so right---There is nothing like "old friends". The shorthand in communication and ALL the shared History...It is THE BEST!
I cannot get over how it stays so light, so late....! AMAZING!

How wonderful that you will see Renny and Diane! You must raise a glass and remember me when you are together as I wish I will be with you!

I know what you were drinking that came from a part of France that starts with C! Very nice.

What is the moon doing...are you sure it wasn't the beverage from C that you imbibed???

I can see why Norway is called the Land of the Midnight Sun...fascinating...light at midnight. I woke up this morning at 5.45 am and it was pitch black, but not for long though.

Look forward to your next post from Sweden with Renny and Diane.

It looks like a truly wonderful evening, or night. Beautiful skies, the best company.
