Our summer-house, that I wrote about in the previous post and a few others. Is as many of you have gathered a place I come to relax. It is situated on an island close to the quite famous Lysefjorden where you can find the pulpit rock. I find the scenery quite beautiful and dramatic. The photo above is taken from the bay where our summer-house is. The name of the bay is Kjeksevåg which translates to Biscuit Bay
The island’s name is Idse and it’s not a very large island, but not too small either. You have a few people living there and there are a few farms and quite a few summer houses. There used to be a school here but now there aren’t enough children on the island to keep the school and with the bride going over to the mainland it’s not a very long bus ride over to the nearest school.
I love how I can be this close to home and still get away to a quiet life with beautiful nature and where you can slow down and not stress. Some of the houses and farms are very picturesque and you feel like you’re in a very different time and place then when you’re in Stavanger. And it’s just an hour 15 minutes drive or a 30 minutes boat ride away!
