The first day of the year, after a good long sleep in and some blog updates, I looked out the window and saw that the weather was quite good.
It was just around 0 degrees and even if it was a bit foggy there was no wind. We had to take advantage and got in to the car to go for a good long walk. We drove for 7 minutes to the largest lake in Stavanger called Stora Stokkavann.
From 1931 until 1959, this lake was the reservoir for the city’s drinking water. Since 2009, the lake has been the crisis back-up water supply. The walk around is just around 8 kilometres and in this weather it was a very lovely walk.
The walk was very lovely and we were far from the only people walking, but luckily it was not crowded. These days that is very important to me to try to avoid the most crowded places and to spend time outdoors when we are not supposed to meet to many people. But I am very happy that we have many places we can go for walks outside and not have to stay only inside our apartment.
After the walk I relaxed for a while in front of the TV before we had some food. The temperatures kept dropping and it got quite cold, so the rest of the evening was spent on the couch under a blanket, watching some more TV.
How did you spend the first day of the year?
