Revebukta Camping

Just a stone throw away from our summer house is a camping area, Revebukta. Unlike some other camping places, it has very limited facilities but it is a very safe and friendly place. the price for an overnight stay is around kr. 150 (21 Euro)
We normally take a walk in the area when we can.

Between Christmas & New Year

If there is one thing we do when we have the time to relax, we escape to Skjeberg and stay at our little cabin. This year, we used a lot of our weekends there.

and Odd visited us on the 28th of December. I always enjoy their company. They make me feel young.

To Charles and Odd, thank you for a wonderful time!

This is how it is like by the fjords between Christmas and New Year.
I sometimes think that I enjoy coming to this place in the winter than in the summer. It is very peaceful and beautiful (almost magical).

Someone forgot to take his boat ashore for the winter.

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.

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