MIDSUMMER FREDAG

Av EvaLena Hallgren - 19 juni 2015 16:12

Today Sweden celebrate midsummer, but here in Norway it’s not until the 23rd. Weather has been great for 3 days now. Not much heat, but sunny so there’s no complaining.

Today we are at a place called Polar Camp, and it has absolutely magnificent views............Sky is blue so we decided to stay here 2 nights.
Again Lotta made a delicious supper, salmon and a salad. This time I did get a small taste............

   

 

The drive to get here were on roads even more narrow than before, and I could sense Mom was a tad nervous since she started to talk to herself .........................(she does that when she’s scared )  I think it got even worse when we saw two RVs that had met and smacked their rearview mirrors together.

 

   

Another scary thing is the tunnels, the longest one so far was 8 km, dark and narrow.......
 
 

  

This where I sleep, and it's very comfy cosy

Today we did something absolutely amazing, we went for a long boat trip and saw a pilot whale, that’s been living in this fjord for 10 years. We were told he always comes to greet the boats. We figured it must be quite lonely since he seems to be the only whale here ??
 
   
Before we went on the boat, both Mom and Lotta gave me a real squeeze, to make sure I’ll be ok ...............like I was going to get scared ???
Ok tough guy says Mom.............how come you were shaking the first 2 minutes than ? .............Me ?? I was cold ......Winking smile 

    

Lotta got herself a shower from a waterfall, Mom came inside, since her camera does not like salt water

 

 

 

Mom got to try her luck at fishing..................no fish tough

 

 

Here's a few more pictures from the boat

 

       

 

The mountainside showed amazing fossils and some places looked like a work of art, can you find the witch ? 

 

   

 

This is our Captain Mr Albert

 

 

 

Amazingly, there’s some beautiful flowers growing on the mountain side.

 

 

we picked flowers for our midsummer table, and tomorrow we’ll be on our way again, first a ferry, than driving, and finally a bike ride to get where we’re going. ................It’ll be a surprise Mom says ......................I’m hoping it’ll be warm

We both had the best night's sleep and woke up early to a very foggy and damp morning. After coffee (for Mom) we went for a walk in the quiet woods. Mom decided to stay here one more night to rest it's a very rustic place but it's quiet and dark at n...

We left the hotel around 11 am and continued North on route 1 following Maines coastline, many small villages start to look much the same but New Caste stuck out not only because there was a 24-hour rest stop nearby. My Mom had just stopped so both o...

 Good morning, last night the weatherman on the radio kept warning that we should expect severe storms and to stay off the roads, so Mom started to look for a motel to get inside. Little did we know that where we are now is more expensive than any ot...

After Washington DC, we continued to Gettysburg a small town in Pennsylvania where there's a lot of history.  Battle of Gettysburg was a turning point in the Civil War, the Union victory that ended General Robert E. Lee's second and most ambitious ...
