Spring weekend

Old canning factory

This weekend has had a very spring like feeling. After sending a me day on friday I had a relaxing evening and a chilled out morning. After that I had a entertainment competition with my band. It was all good fun and not a serious thing. The highlight of the competition was a visiting band from Wales. Consisting mostly of elderly people that started playing late in life.

When I had played in the competition, I hurried home to go change for one of my best friends’ 30th birthday party. There was sooo much good food and the company was great. We enjoyed some fun party games and a few drinks.

So today started a bit slow. I went out for a nice breakfast and the weather was so nice that I went for a good long walk by the sea through an old industrial area that is slowly but surely is being done up quite nicely in the old style.

Now I will go back to the wonderful #sundayblogshare at the “big up your blog” group at Facebook and enjoy some good blog posts.

Grey Sunday!

The Oil museum of Stavanger and grey skies 

Yesterday I celebrated the 30th birthday of one of my closest friends. It was a very good party and it lasted till early morning. So today I decided it was a good idea to go for a walk to get some fresh air. The weather could have been better, it was grey, a bit of fog and a light drizzle of rain. But the fresh air was nice and did me good.

What have you decided to do the is weekend?

Pokemon Go 

Yes, I have to admit that I have downloaded Pokemon Go. I’m still not sure it’s quite something for me, but I decided to se what all the fuss was about. 

The reason I wanted to have a go at it was that I thought it was juni of cool when I walked outside and noticed people who looked like they hadn’t seen daylight in quite some time walking around talking to stranger about a game…

Hope your all enjoying your weekend!  With or without pokemons

The day after our first tour around Bergen we decided to go up another of Bergen’s seven mountains, Ulriken. This is a taller mountain with it’s 643 meters above sea level.

To get up we took the cable carts that are called Perle and Bruse. The weather was a little cloudy, but quite good.

When we got to the top we had lunch at the lovely restaurant that serves local food. If I wasn’t driving I would have tried one of the local beer.

As we sat eating the wind started acting up and there was quite the amount of fog comming in a long with rain.

So when we were going down the cable carts was stopped due to the wind. We had to wait for about two hours for the wind to have calmed down enough for it to be safe for us to take it down again.

It wasn’t the best trip down from there I’ve had. Dangling in the cart not being able to see much. But it was completely safe and we where happy to come down.

Nice Bonfire by the sea

Yesterday we had our mid-summer celebration here by our summer house. The weather was lovely and spirit high. We started in the morning by cleaning the beach, cutting the grass near the beach and carrying things to burn on the bonfire.

Sun Starting to Set

During the day there was a fishing contest and evening there was a treasure hunt for the kids. And then there was the lighting of the bonfire. After eating lovely food of freshly caught crab as a starter and a wonderful barbequed beef for a main ending with ice cream bought from the ice cream van that dropped in.

All the people from the summer houses nearby was gathered down by the bonfire and we sat there enjoing the sunset, each others company and something nice in our glases.
