    Thank you!
    And you know what...., Venus is left there by intention...., as I could not get myself to cut it away.
    The moon is very hard to take a picture of, but as dean Martin say; -"When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie..., it's amore" :-D

          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.

                      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')

                          Inside the lavvo, tent, teepee or what you call it...


                          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...


                            Tried to extract the red of the boat passing by, leaving all the rest in b/w

                              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... :-)
