High and Low with Grandkid in Oslo

My regular readers do know my grandson Sebastian is a very active, young lad.
Last Tuesday we took a tour around in Oslo - not Downtown, but in the Beautiful nature that surrounds the Capital of Norway.

First Stop: Grefsenkollen (382 m or 1 253 feet above Sea)

Seb was not very aware of the fantastic view over the Oslofjord, the Hills and Forests and some part of downtown Oslo. Click to see more details.
But he wanted to be viewed himself. Fantastic.

Papa and Niklas talked about something to eat, and Seb did hear, so he ran into the restaurant.
After our snack, we went down to another destination in Oslo.

Second Stop: Bygdöy. A peninsula in SW Oslo. (Papa grew up here, so did his kids)

We went at the beachfront, but what catched Seb's attention was of course rotten trees. Papa does not have the number of trees he combat to the ground. At least, he used his energy. That's for sure.

Here is more Nature:

Still lot's of Snow, which is not usual on April 7.
In the Background you can see the hilltop we did visit 30 minutes ago. In the 1930'ies was used as a landing field for aeroplanes. Now it's a part of the Royal Farm.

Just before we left, a Mallard couple arrived and started to swim peaceful around in this year around pond. It's in fact below Sealevel at Tide. And nicely preserved to the benefit of all the rare water-insects and other small creatures that lives here.

Just a few climps from the late Spring here in Oslo, Norway.

Sebastian is indeed a very busy boy. Reminds me a bit of my Ian at his age. :)

Lovely view from there. Wow, you really have some snow still left! Well, it might melt fast now when the sun is getting stronger.

It's so great for kids to be out in the nature, so much to explore and experience. The fresh air makes them tired too, so they sleep easier in the evening...
