Photos from Yesterday – I’m a survivour!

I survived the 17th of May. All the marching, playing, the rain and sunshine. Even the part of the day where I was locked out of my apartment after being so tired I had returned the car and the keys to my home and got back with the keys to the car (luckily I got in after about an hours wait). Below are som photos from the big day:

The start of the day was so wet I was afraid to get the camera out

For the second parade in a tiny place called Gjesdal the sun was shining. And the view was lovely. There is never many people watching the parade there because almost everyone is in it.

The third parade is the one furthest away, there was a combination of sunshine and rain, so you both got wet from the rain and from th jacket getting a bit clammy. But fantastic scenery and people were so grateful we came.

Forth parade was in Oltedal the valley with its own “Hollywood sign” if you look closely you can see it on the hillside.

Then it was of to eat in Kongeparken, an amusement park in Ålgård. We ate and had a small parade in the park.

Last on the programme was a small parade on to the new football stadion in Ålgård, but by now it was raining so much I didn’t want to get my phone wet, so no photos.

I got an ice cream in the end!

    1. I don’t know why they do. It shouldn’t be like that I think, but such is. I do enjoy a relaxing holiday myself. Thank you for the sympathy it really wasn’t any fun at all.

  1. What a busy exhausting day! A lovely tradition but I wish the weather could have been kinder for you all. Also you take part in so many event it seems you do’t get a real chance to enjoy the festivities yourself. I like the ‘Hollywood’ style sign.

    1. The “rule” is, mostly for the kids, that this is the day you get to eat as much ice cream as you can. So only having time for one isn’t so good. But it was a very nice one. Thank you for stopping by 🙂

    1. It’s very exhusting and you are too busy to enjoy most of the time, but it is fun in parts. And it’s nice to see how much it means to people that we come to their parade to play for them!
