This is to family Duper, our friends and hosts in Guesthouse Ana in Mlini, on the lovely coast of Croatia:

Finally at last, here are some images taken during our memorable 10 days stay in your lovely house and garden, and in the nearby areas. Truly, we have spoken a lot about the nice and relaxing days at your place. And the interesting conversations. And not to forget, the many delicious vegetables and olive oil from the garden. Hopefully, we will have a reunion in not too long. Lots of greetings from Oscar, Marthe, Øyvind, Helle and Terje.

By the way: Since we returned from Mlini, we have had a 4 week long xtremely hot period here in Trondheim. With temperatures between 25 and 30 degrees C! Which is very rare in these areas of Europe. I think the record note was 32! So you see, we have had solid dose of hot weather here in the far north. I myself, who is not that keen on such high temperatures, was longing back to the smoother temperatures, and the showers we experienced, during our stay in Mlini… A truly memorable holiday, as these images hopefully will show!

Luxuriant garden, obviously good soil for growing your own food.

Another beauty in the Guesthouse Ana garden- the White Y (funny name, but it has a white y under its wings, that´s why..).

Oscar´s favorite activity was looking for snails. Here´s one of them.

Bye for now – and hoping to see you soon!

Kjæresteskyer

Varmt så det holder, og lite med skyer på himmelen for tiden. Litt for lite og litt for varmt for en som har skyet oppholdsvær, frisk bris og 15 grader som favorittvær.

Men på tidligkvelden i dag dukket plutselig et skypar opp på himmelvelvingen, lett svinsende fra nord, og nærmest vinket medlidende til en svett menneskekropp på terassen sin. Kjærestepar kanskje? Opp i skyene forelsket? Forholdet ble raskt oppløst, men det det var arti og litt rørende så lenge det varte da. Satser på at det snart kommer noen skyvenner og dekker større deler av himmelvelvingen (har vel ikke mange med meg der, regner jeg med…).

Kontraster på vannet!

Trondheimsfjorden og Nidelva i kveld – en usannsynlig sommerkveld i juli med 25 grader og en lett, varm bris fra nordøst. 2 farkoster tar seg frem på vannet på svært så ulikt vis:

Et av verdens største cruiseseilskip, franske «Club Med 2», med sikkert minst 300 mennesker ombord, forlater Trondheim etter å ha tatt et kort farvel i fullrigget tilstand. Litt senere samme fine sommerkveld – en enpersons farkost padles stående, rolig og balansert, nedover Nidelva mot fjorden. Fasinerende kontraster i måter å ta seg frem  til vanns på…
