Swimming Summer

The last week the weather has been amazing here in Norway, and this is turning out to be one of the best summer in a very long time. I’ve been spending much of my time after work and last sunday taking advantage of the heat and sun and gone swimming in the sea several places.

Went to Sola Beach, a nice sandy beach close to the airport and spent a lovely day swimming, sun bathing, reading and building a sandcastle.

On Wednesday my day called and asked me if I wanted to go on a boat trip. I was quite happy to and it was a very nice trip.

And visiting favourite spots in the local area on my walks is a great alternative to going to the beach when the temperatures are around 10-14 degrees Celsius. This summer has not at all been like last year. […]
