Saying Goodbye to Summer

It has been a wonderful summer. I am sure a lot of Norwegians would agree with me on this. I am glad we stayed in Norway this year. Last weekend, we have been lucky that the weather was perfect for a little trip on the fjord.

Strømstad is a cozy little Swedish Town where we can buy cheaper cigarettes and wine (Hehe) and half the people you meet are norwegians.

We got some good sized mackerel which we had last Saturday night.

The most enjoyable thing to do after fishing is sitting by the fireplace and enjoying the stillness of the night

  1. Hei Renny, Summer this year is one of the best that I have experienced in Norway. And I am getting hooked to fishing (free dinner!)

    Cruise, Norway is such a beautiful country and nature here is just fantastic!

    Charles, You are most welcome anytime. We normally eat outside when we can 🙂

    Marichu, thanks for leaving a message! Will be visiting your blog too.

    Joey, actually, we do not live in strømstad but I have no problems living there too.

  6. What a wonderful post AL. Yea we’ve had a wonderful summer in Norway and you’ve summeriesed it the very best way. I haven’t been fishing this summer, but some years ago we had 40 makerell in 2 hours. Sitting in front of the fire and grilling the fish afterwords is the top of the cream!
    I wish you and your family a wonderful end to your week:-)

    Iskoo – fishing is very relaxing… plus I get free dinner 🙂

    Winsome – I am satisfied with the summer this year although an indian summer day in the autumn won’t be bad (but I do not think it would happen here)

    Nino – thanks. the town is really a cozy place.

    Beng – I hope you can come over too so we can meet 🙂

    Ethel – medyo nawawala na nga ang sunshine dito. Minsan sumusulpot pa rin.

    Doc Abner – Actually, telephone camera lang yung ginamit ko dito. I am still saving up for a good camera.
