Autumn in Southern Norway

Fall report from Norway
This last week: Raining and raining and raining
This Friday - 20 minutes without rain.
We went shopping.

On the Road between our summerhome - 12 minutes or so, it's lots of nature and history.
Believe it or not, what you here see is a dam - a pound - from which Ice was exported to Denmark, Holland and UK. An industry that lasted for some hundreds years. Before the modern fridges. Hundreds lost their jobs. Time changes. Even bloggers.

This is what we see, when we drive to the nearest "Shopping Mall". It's Autumn. Silence. Colours. Change.

I did think you might be interested to see what the nature looks like, in this season here at 60 degrees North. Southward view. 8 minutes from our Summer Home.

Well, it looks like it really wanted to keep raining from these pictures, my dear....!

I just can't write all that again...Sorry Tor.

Grey skies...shudder. I find them depressing. Give me sunshine anytime, that's why I live in Queensland. We get rain, but not for weeks on end like New Zealand. It runs soooo much there...

Ah it's beautiful, Tor. I love the Autumn. I think it's my favorite time of year! Today I get out my wool sweaters for the winter.

I love autumn when it is sunny and still warm and colourful, but when it is rainy I stay inside and turn on the heating and read or blog...
But I prefer outdoor activities and sunshine and - summer!
Have a nice week and thanks for visiting my blog!
