Arriving Oslo by Ship a November Morning

It’s curious how we often think: What we see everyday, might be so familiar we do not think it might be excotic for people who lives in other parts of this tiny planet…2011-26-11 Pipe
You are hereby invited to join my experience when entering Oslo by Ship on Saturday Morning, November 26 –2011. With Photos and a few Words.
Oslo - Nov 26-2011  Followed
See the follower? Just before 9 AM . What a Hunt.
Juleseminar 2011 - Saturday Morning in Oslofjord 
We are followed – Who will be the Winner?
 2011-11-26 Ships and Fiord Here we are in the inner part of the Oslofiord. The Ship behind is coming from Kiel in Germany. It’s the Worlds largest Car ferry and as well a cruise liner, with all what you expect of fascilities on a Cruise. Our Summer House is, by the way,  just on the right side of the Ship, in the Background Hills.
2011-11-26 Steilene Osloford
This Island – in fact several, used to have Oil Tanks when I was a little boy. And it’s a saying: The Sun allways shines on Steilene, the name of these tiny Islands. To day you can stay overnight here in old style seaside and Light Houses.
2011-11-26 Kolsås
In the distance you see some typical Hills around Oslo. The White Building to the Right:  Here was Oslo Airport until 1998.2011-11-26 Huk 1
This is Southern part of the Penninsula where I lived for 30 years.
It was an Island, but due to the raise of the Land after the last Ice Age it is now a Penninsula.
2011-11-26 Lille Herbern 
During the Oslo Blog Gathering in 2010, we had a common Dinner in the White Building just in the Center of this Photo. We then took photos on the Ship from Land, this time from a ship towards land and Hills.
Oslo - Light House Dyna
Dyna Light House and Foghorn. I remember when as a little boy , Iwas in our Garden, less than a Mile away a foggy afternoon and heard the “Sorrow Sounds”  from here. Two Days later:  Whooping cough. A Token?  To Day it’s Restaurant… In the Summer

Can you see the Ski-Jump in the Center of this Photo? Holmenkollen. The competions there attracts several 10k attenders every year, since more than a 100 Years. It so easy to get there with Oslos metro systems. You can walk as well. In my Childhood we did walk down -35-45 minutes...
Enlarge the Photo and you will realize how close it is to the Down Town
Here you can see Oslo City Hall – and some HillsJuleseminar 2011 - Oslo City Hall etc
The Blue Sea, the Hills and  what you do not see: The capital of Live Music in Northern Europe..

How fun. What a nice tour of Oslo and of course the waterways too. My favorite part is a boat and water. I love the big cruise ships too. We are going to have to visit Oslo one day.

We have met Tor and it was wonderful. Nothing better than meeting your blogging buddies.

Have a terrific day. Big hug to you and Anna. :)

Dear Tor, you're always delighting us with amazing pictures of the so called "tiny world". I've always wanted to visit Norway and these pics give me a hint of the breathtaking views you're surrounded with. Thanks a lot from an Italian friend.

Vi har en fin innseiling til hovedstaden, men jeg tror likevel den ikke kan måle seg med øygården inn til Stockholm.
Tok et fantastisk 'lysbilde' av utsikten fra annen etasje mot byen i ettermiddag. Det blir innlegg på Our World om vel åtte timer!
Ha en fin kveld ;:OD)
