PhotoHunt -Feb 14 - 2009 - nautical


This was really a challenge. Last week I could nor decide. This week I did. Only one photo-
I can not deny that I'm living in Norway. What has that to do with thise weeks theme: nautical? Well, it's going far back in history. Most know are the Vikings.

Here you see some young boys. The photo is a scan from a slide.
Two of them, well, they are grandsons to at that time the worlds largest oil carriers. Sitting in this small boat with two of my sons. Happy days. That was. (The Out Board Motor they did "harm" before the one Nautical mile back.

More Nautical

Well, we were taught at school that the Vikings were well known for their nautical prowess (as well as pillaging, etc...heheh).

Sweet photo, rather sentimental. I had a problem with 'nautical,' too. I guess I have too many nautical photos to choose from, and wasn't very creative! Nonetheless, it's at http://newyorktraveler.net/photo-hunters-nautical/

Hope you get a chance to visit. Happy weekend!

Vikings or not, but there have always been something about boats and the sea that is attractive. Relaxing. Freedom. Ah.....

I hope you and Anna had a wonderful Valentine evening.

Bubbles. I say no more.... *giggles*

The Vikings came to the island of Newfoundland (now part of Canada) 1000 years ago and built a small community.... the first European discoverers of North America!

Of course a good Viking like you would have many fine nautical photos!

I hope you and Anna are well, dear Tor.
