    Spotted this contraption on Aspovaagen during our"Indian Summer" (24. Sept.2017):


    Looks like they are enjoying their outing on a slow mowing raft:


    Reminds me of my childhood days when we would bang together rafts from just about anything that would float and paddle around on the same Aspovaagen.
    (Minus the life vests and outboard motor of course. A couple of home made paddle oars would do)

    This spring I took a picture of an apple tree in the middle of town in full floweringØ


    Here it is now, with the apples nearly ripe and ready:

    Somebody had already picked the low hanging fruits and broken off branches to get the not so easy to reach apples as well.

    A "closer" look at Nørvøya:

    Beside the legal aspects: I would prefer the pink one, even i don't like the color. The white one must have a catastrophic suspension with these wheels.

    There are now TWO stretched limousines offering party tours in Aalesund. Seen here parked near Molo Micro brewery and Pub at Stornespiren:

    (The two entertainers sitting there in their bowler hats)

    Apparently somebody must have become jealous and complained: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/2017/09/05...ick_articles=2

    Summer is paying a brief visit to Aalesund:


    But for how long, with those clouds rolling in:

    Another spot not much visited is this nice lookout point in the City Park:

    It is a small hill situated next to the beginning of the steps up to Fjellstua and the beginning of Brorgerne's vei, which goes all the way along the north side of Aksla.

    On top of the hill is this memorial dedicated to Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany, in thanks for his assistance after the big fire in 1904:


    Looking up to a familiar sight on top of the steps:

    Another walk in parts of Aalesund seldom seen. Here is from Bergveien:


    A well restored hose at the corner of Bergveien and Vannspringdalen:


    Vannspringdalen is an alternative route to Aksla:

    Those with sharp eyes can see the stairs going up to "Dammane" on top of Aksla.

    It is high season for some of the largest blooms during August:

    Nice colour?

    Then the mountains are bare, at least as seen from downtown Aalesund (Rutebil Sentralen):
