Loving all the details (and the little red house)!

I forgot to mention that the attention to detail by both man and God is stunning (way to raise the bar).

I am trying to imagine taking a stroll in that magnificent 2:00 am light. I think it would do wonders for my writing.

Stupid question: Do Norwegians tend to have longer hours because of the late sunset? Or is it beddie bye at 10:00 like us?

What a trip! Have fun with your sister and can't wait to see what you have for your picnic lunch!

I'm really interested to know what we'll be having to eat at the picnic!

Little red house makes me swoon.

Norway is a beautiful country. I live in North Dakota where a lot of people who homesteaded the area are of Norweigean descent. Some even have relatives yet there. North Dakota has close ties with Norway. Norway's royalty comes to visit every few years. Some years ago a local lady visited Norway where her father came from. As she toured the farm where he grew up, she noticed a poem on one of the rafters of a barn. She copied it down and either asked her father or found out that her father wrote the poem there before he left to come to America. It is a beautiful song. So all of this talk of Norway has me remembering this song. A local high school choir performed this in Norway during a summer tour. Enjoy a little performance of this song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSiTwGlGNxs&feature=results_main&playnext=1&list=PL453FCF72789EA90E

Little Red House. I want it. Please arrange shipping. Thanks. xoDonna

Wonderful seeing thru your eyes. Enjoy the rest of your trip with your sister.

I seem to have missed what skerries are, could you elaborate?

That loo is just sparking! Redolent with a certain reassuring quality.
Just a suggestion, if you visit Italy again? You may find the loos a bit questionable by comparison. Their loos are 'hygienized for your protection.' I have no idea what this means, but I think it's something that occurs once, early in a loo's life when it gets a sticker attached to it that says its hygienized, and is rarely if every repeated. I saw enough examples of questionably hygienized loos to where I felt it was not an isolated phenomenon. I love Italy, but, its facilities are rarely equipped with all the features that are standard in well, I'm sure in Norwegian loos.
Oh and not sure they come with cats for company either...

OMG..I'm gushing over here...what awesome sweet peeks of your Bergen experience thus far...everytime I check your blog I let out a squeal of bliss and my DD's who are home these days (summer break) want to know what all the fuss is about and they generally don't have to ask since they almost always guess whose blog I am looking at. I reserve my audible responses for my favorite travel guide. ;)

bergen is beautiful at 2am.....what a joy to have so many daylight hours, and then such beauty in the night!
so glad i came to norway in june.

Thanks for taking us along!
