October Sunday in Norway

What to do when the Summer is over? And after returning from a fantastic week with Claudie and Pierre in Provence (more to come from that visit) to a chilly place?
Well, something we had to do.
Summer Greetings 
Close the Summer Water in the Summer House.To avoid freezing and Water leakage and heavy repair and bills.
2010-10-16 - Summerhouse 
My Son and Grandson went out there with me. Only 30 minutes drive our so. Checking the Grapes. Result: No harvest 2010.
2010-10-16 - Summerhouse - Apple tree 2 
Grandson loved to pick the last of the Apples.
2010-10-16 - Summerhouse Apple Tree 1 
He ran up the ladder like a Monkey.

2010-10-16 - Summerhouse - Apple Tree 3 
And picke Apples, one by one. Very carefully. And droped one by one to his Father. At least that was the intention;) Can you see him up in the Tree?2010-10-16 - Summerhouse - Apple Tree Seb on top 1 
Here he is at the very top. Can you see him? – if not, click to enlarge. Only Cats and Birds can be that high in the 70-year old Apple Tree.

After what we had done what we had to do in the Summer House, we headed for Oslo.
2010-10-16 - Tourist info Oslo etc 
First stop: Tourist Information – Oslo and Akershus (Departement surrounding Oslo)
2010-10-16 - Seb and Hot Dog 
Hungry youngsters. Papa had to tank up his Car, they too, in their way. Hot Dogs.

Next project: Helping Maria in the Marina.
2010-10-16 - Sailboat must be ready for the Winter 1 
The Sailboats Mast had to be taken down, before laid up for Winter storage.
2010-10-16 - Sailboat must be ready for the Winter 4 
We were lucky: Clear blue Sky.
2010-10-16 - Sailboat must be ready for the Winter 3 
The next Day, the Boat was safe and sound in it’s Winter Storage.
(It’s a must due to Ice and Snow up here at 60 degrees North)

More from here and there to come….

Litt vedmodig å lukke for vinteren... om to måneder går det rette veien igjen. Det er en litt tve-egga tanke!
Vil ikke bytte bort de fire årstidene. Hva hadde vi å glede oss til i så fall?
