A random typical historic farm building
The Folk Museum in Oslo is an expansive site with lots of historic housing and cultural bits. During the summer there are a lot of people dressed in costumes of the day who interpret the various bits. But in mid-September, it is far more quiet and only one person in costume was observed. But this is always worth a visit to see a lot of how people have lived in Norway over the years (like 1,000 years).
Looking up the fjord at snow-capped mountains.
Two pics from the Naeroyfjorden. There will be more such pics in the next couple of days.
Cormorants on a channel marker in the Naeroyfjorden.
This is one of quite a number of photos from the weekend. More will follow.
A relax day in Norway, so putting up a pic from Borneo for something fun.
This is a trilobite beetle.
Norway pics will likely start again on Monday.
Hiked around Fornebu/Snarnøya for some hours. But was more using the binoculars than than the camera. Saw a great number of bird species, but not so many photos of such.
A few pics of other things are of note.
Frogner Park scenery
Touring around Frogner Park today, plus a few more sites generally on the west side of Oslo. The weather was great and just had a nice bit of it.
There are a lot of bees and such in Oslo. During the summer they are everywhere. Seems reasonable, as there are lots of flowers.
But the season is turning, and they are less common now as many of the flowers are done for the year. But some will be around until the snow starts.
Creeper turning red
Fall is coming, and some of the leaves are starting to change. Things in general are starting to change as well, but still quite warm out for Oslo this time of year. A few pictures from our travels around Grønland today, with bonus macro pics from the yard after dark.
Walking around the lake, we saw quite a few bird species, and generally had a great time.
The Oslo Summer Park is the same place as the Oslo Winter Park, but with different activities. In the winter, it is all about skiing and snow sports, while in the summer it is all about downhill biking and struggling about in the trees on the climbing course.
The climbing course really isn't about climbing, but more like traversing, on the many, many aerial obstacles they have set up. There are simple high wires, various rope bits, and just about anything else imaginable that can be set up between trees to make for a really fun day of off-the-ground fun. Plan a whole day for this bit.
