A Summer is over - some very good memories

The Summer of 2010 here in Norway is more or less over. Where we live, we have had a green winter, and August was the coldest and most Rainy in 28 years. Not one single day swimming. The Ocean was too cold or simply too many jellyfish the type that burns.
In spite of these facts, we have lot's of great memories, among them our trip to Istanbul and Southern Turkey  - in the Bodrum area.
Highlight #1 the OsloBG - The Oslo Blog Gathering in August - Here "behind the scenes"..
 We have collected some bottles from that exceptional event. As you might see (Click on the Photo), a very international collection of wines brought by Lifecruiser, Lazaza, RennyBA and DianeCA besides TorAa.
If you ponder: We did not drink all the bottles during one evening. LOL!
I must admit, it was hard to go back to work after our blog-friends went back to their respective homes around the globe. We had for some Days in a kind of Abstinence.
Missing the presence of the Global and friendly Blogger Community.
We will meet again;)
PS
Anna and Papa will visit some secret places during this Autumn/Fall.
Our Cats are doing well.
And I suddenly realized I've been a blogger since late August 2006.
Since that I've met some wonderful people from around the World.
People we will meet again and people we have not yet met in person so far.
More to come....

Hey sweetie! You've been blogging for 4 years now, wow where does the time go! And we have both been so lucky to meet lots of great people! I agree it was quite a cold summer although I did go swimmming several times, I am the type of person who likes to be tough and go in when everyone else is chicken hehehe! Glad you got warmed up on your vacation to Istanbul! I am trying to talk Renny into a "resteplass" trip to someplace in southern Europe before it gets all cold there too!!!

These are great pictures Tor...I especially love the one of you and Anna. You two look very happy...and having a wonderful time. It looks like our summer might be over too. The weather has been a little cooler and I'm seeing slight signs of Autumn....which is just fine with me. Autumn is my favorite season. Take care... ~Joy

As you now settle in for a long winter's nap, Tor, savor all the memories, as I know you will. I love that all the plannings of the year came to a successful end. You can all be proud of yourselves!
