Spring is here…

photo by J+B=Us.

Although it does not feel like it all the time, spring has arrived in Norway. Snow has melted away, flowers are coming up and in some cases blooming, 3 layers of clothing is not needed and sun glasses can be spotted at every outing. Now, don’t think that makes it warm. Today it is just a few degrees above freezing and a bit cold for us “new comers’, although the natives seems to be enjoying it still?

This is a photo from last weekend where we did an outing down to our local beach. There are (apparently) 4 blue flag beaches in Norway and we have two of them just down from here.

Kaelyn and Alex got very excited when we said we were going to the beach. Took some work to explain that the beach does not automatically mean swim wear… Particularly this time of year in Norway!

Even though we did not go swimming, we had a lovely outing to the beach with a picnic and collecting of shells…

And no, you will not get me to jump from the 10 meter high diving platform! And that is a promise!
