Ah, well - these photographers!! No further comment on that photo!! We just sometimes have different interests :-). We went from Sogne Fjord up into the mountains - this is just one of the glacier arms coming down from Josterdal's Breen (breen = glacier) - the pool was great to have a splash!!

On the other side, further to the Atlantic Ocean, there were lakes full of water lilies - here are just a few - and she nearly had her splash in the water :-)).

The Atlantic Ocean near the famous Atlanitc Veien (veien = road) was full of funny smelling, moving plants! I tried some - they tasted awful!

Hungry as I was in so much fresh air, I tried my best to get a share of her sandwich! Bet, I would be faster than what she could put it to her mouth?

Ups! Someone else was interested in our sandwich - a 'Great Black-backed Gull' (Larus marinus).

After another long drive through the rain, we finally made it - 71° 10' 21" North, 25° 47' 0" East, the North Cape, Norway!

And one photo to prove, that I was there! Lucky us, we had 20°degrees celsius that morning (with a camper, you can just stay overnight.):

Fasten your seatbelts, I'm ready to take off!!! And what did I see?

Reindeer!! Now these were far more interesting than sitting nicely at the Cape - pitty, she did not allow any chasing..

Some other smelling things were found in Nusfjord, a small fishermen's village on the Lofoten Islands: Dead fish heads left outside to dry:

We spent a gorgeous week on the islands and I had many good runs along the beaches. We saw whales, seals and on this beach an otter (sorry - no photos) - she allowed me to run and chase the yet sleepy seagulls off the beach :-) - see: I'm very happy!!! (We camped where the houses are in the background)

Once more they got a bit nostalgic about an old bicycle trip - she found the rights hill and nearly the same angle as years before, where she made her most favourite b&w photo - there were so many newly built houses, that we searched long for this view:

On her homepage, you can see a scan of the old b&w fineprint, he's enlarged in their own darkroom - that was before digital :-)) http://www.playativity.com/30201/30301.html

Gotta go now - more on the Lofoten Islands and our way home in the third and last part of my story...

Oh Joy, what a lucky girl you are!!!  I love visiting Norway with you, as expected, yes expected now  :-)  there are plenty of fabulous pictures!! I have been there too but never saw reindeers on the beach ... and it makes it so more attractive a trip when view through our setter's eyes!!! especial when this setter is super dynamic and accompanied by 2 photographers!!!!!  Joy tell you mum please, that she doesn't have to reduce your holiday blog at 3 parts ... I can do with 10  :-)
