        We've moved a bit away from Bjerkestrand..., but we're still on the beautiful south side of the island Frei in Kristiansund.
        And what do you know..., it's almost 15 years since our daughter Vilde was born and babtised. Today it was time for her confirmation to the babtism, and together with family and friends
        she (and of course we as proud parents) celebrated it all. I cot her permission to post this picture to friends at CVF, so here's the proud fathers daughter :-)

          Congratulations to you all! This is one of the things that life is about.

          By the way - nice bunad, what is it called?

            Thanks Tommi!
            yes, this is life...., I mean; you have to have a job to pay your bills..., but the rest is life in highest grade! :-)

            Now, the clothing there is a Nordmørsbunad, from Nordmøre (Møre and Romsdal county (län) is made up of the three parts Sunnmøre (Ålesund), Romsdal (Molde) and Nordmøre (Kristiansund). The Nordmørsbunad has three types of wests (two type red and one green) and some other differences a guy can't possibly know anything about ;-)

            The price is no secret, so when I tell you what this bunad outfit with silver and shoes cost in Norwegian Kroner, hold on tight to your chair: NOK 56.000,-

              Congratulations to Vilde (and you all) from sunny Wiltshire too!!

              As I think I've mentioned elsewhere on CVF, Mrs PoloUK and Mamma PoloUK made Mrs PoloUK's bunad. That didn't make it a lot cheaper, but it kept them both quiet for months!!
              Cheers,

              Mark.

                Funny story,
                but the great part is that they actually created something rather personal together.

                Absolutely right Tommi.

              That didn't make it a lot cheaper, but it kept them both quiet for months!!

                    Thanks Cecilia and Ralf!

                    You'd better prepair for a pretty great day down there in Stuttgart Ralf. And a daughter grown into an adult just over night. Though in my speach (because, you've also written one?) I pointed out her many good years as a youngster before even thinking about being something as dull as adult :-) Wish you all the best!

                      Springtime May has passed long time ago, I guess all went well in Stuttgart and here we're back to autumn again. Time for yet another walk down to Viken farm at Bjerkestrand :-)

                      The road called Bjerkestrandveien, with my home to the left on that next hilltop


                      We are in the middle of September, but it looks like summer...., and I like it


                      This area down by the sea belongs to Kristiansund community and is open for free use for the citizens.






                      On the area there are benches and grills, provided by the community (hope that is the word for 'kommunen')

                        Family dog, a golden retriever. Camilla is her name...., or Stella Nautica as is her real name from her pedigree


                        Nice area this




                        On our walk down to the area, we passed many rowan berries


                        And, Cecilia, the old milk barrel :-)

                          Freifjorden in hazy condition and strong headlight


                          The nearest operational farm to Viken has cows


                          A faded dandelion. Remember we picked them up as childs, said 'Bye, bye grandpa'...., and blew them all away :-)




                          Do you spot the otter? Looks like a small log...

                            One more red extraction exersice...., not entirely a success, as some green came along in the shadow area...


                            Bjerkestrandveien in b/w returning home


                            From outside my home looking the other way...


                            Hope you all enjoyed this early autumn walk with me... :-)

                              Walking Bjerkestrand has turned into a "Walking south side of Frei"-thread.
                              Tonight, I drove to the grosery store, and on my way home, I desided to stop by the former ferry quay at Kvitnes, and the shore over at Freistranda beach.
                              The reason was of ourse clear skies, almost full Moon and expectation of some Aurora Borealis.
                              I was not suited up for cold, windy photography, but had only sneakers, a jeans and my jacket...., so after a short hour out, I had no feeling in my fingers. IT WAS COLD! :-D

                              Anyway, here's the view toward Gjemnessundet suspention bridge, and the remains of the old ferry quay can be seen in the foreground. (Difficult to pinpoint focus in manual)


                              Reinsfjell (992 meters) to the left and Gjemnessundet bridge


                              The Aurora Borealis was not expected until midnight, but two hours early...., here it appears on the north-eastern sky


                              The "photographymobil" parked at Freistranda. Freikollen (629 meters) in the background


                              Had to get the Big Dipper in the frame :-)
