Papa has to do what Papa has to do - vacation

Both Anna and Solvi have Vacation, but papa did work this morning and even this evening. In the meantime, he had to do what a man have to do these days:
Beeing women's Chauffeur. They wanted to go to Sweden.Shopping of course. It’s not that far from the Summer House – let’s say around 75 minutes. Each way. Plus 2 hours Shopping.
Papa went hungry, so he bought a baguette ++.
When the women in question discovered that fact, what do you think happened?
 We agreed upon to find a nice place to have an open air luncheon.
10-15 minutes off the Motorway. Idyllic?
Here you see them - Open Air Lunch.
Mind you: A dangerous place - Sea cabel just beside. Woman and warning Signs?
Papa is just a driver...
Can you see the Fish?
Don't worry, papa could not see them either;-)
Papa went for a short walk, and enjoyed this house and garden
Is it a Summer House? Or do people live here year around?
The Ladies are enjoyoing their Shrimp Salad. Papa suspects it was some sweets in the plastic bag. Who knows. After all. the both of them were very pleased;-)
PS. When back in our Summer House 9 out of 10 sweet pastries were missing. Mysterious. LOL.
Saturday we are going to Istanbul. Hope my PC will work from there. For short reports.
Have a great time everybody.
PS 2: Will you join me at Paradise Beach, to learn how the History of Northern Europe Change around 1808?

Papa experiences a strange Saturday - travel in Norway

Hi,  my dear readers.
Gressløk i full blomst
This Saturday we have had 3 Seaons within 5 hours here in the Summerhouse. Temperatures ranging from 9C – 48F to 22C – 72F.
From Noon to 5 PM: Sunshine, Heavy Rain, Thunder, Sunshine, Rain.  Storm and no wind at all.
Rosa fed up with rainy weather 
Rosa prefered to stay inside. The best weatherforecast there is.
Here are some proofs :
Blowing in the Wind
Rain and wind
Blue Water 
Suddenly changed to blue Water
Green Winter 1
Moments later: Then Rain again…
Rain and chairs on the Deck 
Chairs on the Platform
Platform in Sunlight
Suddenly: Wet deck reflecting Sunshine
Kitchen view - West 
View from the Kitchen. Wet Rocks.  60 feet right up.
What to do but lit up in the Fireplace…Royal Swedish Wedding
or watching TV – The royal wedding in Sweden…
Sky view 
or looking up and see some sudden blue sky…
Tomatoes and Pimentos 
… and checking out the Tomatoes and The Hot Peppers.Felicia 
Felicia is the one of us that handles changing weather the best. She is the Queen of all seasons.
Have a great time all of you.
Remember OsloBG?
You can as well visit our visit to the Japanese Garden in Portland, OR.

Cats on Tuesday

Hi dear Cat-friends,
It’s have been a a too long time since last report and visit to “Cats on Tuesdays.”  Just a short report from Norway.
Stompa is still missing, since April 22. No reports about him the last 2 weeks. We still hope…Cats after Mating
Our two female Cats moved with us to the Summer House 4 weeks ago. They love their freedom, but it has been a chilly Spring. Here is Felicia to the left and Mr Grey to the Right. Yes, there have been “Cat-Music” around for a while. Here on the Roof, over the Rest-Room.
 Three cats after Mating However they can take advantage of freedom. See the Male Cat in the Centre. And Felica and Rosa. After this, we have heard no mating sounds. Click on the Photo and you’ll see what I mean:-)
Rosa on the Roof
Relaxing. Here Rosa.
Felicia  and Mouse 
And Hunting.  Like Felcia.
Like us, the Cats have long Days. We are away for 12 hours – Monday to Friday.
Have a nice time with your beautiful Cats.
What we really wish:
Your presence during OsloBG in August 19-21-2010
