We found a large antique store with a wide assortment of goodies. But the best part was this tiny seating area literally on the water.
We sat and stared, watched the gulls play diving games and fly in formation, sipped our pear sodas which are locally made. And dreamed about being sailors on the 7 seas.
In an atmospheric setting such as this the mind plays tricks and writes stories. I'm on my second novella and carol is on her 3rd opera.
Next time we conduct botany experiments and study the flora and fauna more rigorously.
For now we are content to find a shabby rocker where we might sit and spin tales, untangle sinister plots, and in general lend our keen crime solving abilities to aalesund's cold case file.
First case: figure out where all the inhabitants have gotten off to and who is partying so late at night and listening to johnny cash and waylon jennings at 2 am.
