In early August, I visited Marie and Pål in Fredrikstad for a weekend. We planned to go for a long walk on Saturday, but it rained like crazy for much of the day. After a lot of cups of tea the rain finally stopped, and Marie and I went for a walk not far from Fredrikstad.
It started out cloudy, and we thought these views were about as much as we could hope for 😉
We found lots of chanterelles in the forest!
We both took lots of photos, as usual…
And going for a walk with Marie always means I get some photos of myself 😀
The clouds kept clearing, and it actually turned into a very sunny afternoon – how nice!
Nice views down to a boathouse and boat.
We followed the coast, where it was usually easy to walk on the rocks.
The heather was already starting to bloom, so pretty!
Marie while we took a break for drinks and snacks 🙂
This way please!
You can tell where the wind usually comes from around here…
Some of the rocks look like submarines!
Beautiful bay, with two sandy beaches nearby.
We turned back into the forest from here, past this dreamy cabin…
Through the pretty forest…
Very pretty views on top of the hill, with bare rock, flowering heather and beautiful trees.
Apple trees near a house we passed…
Pretty country road close to where we parked the car.
What a beautiful walk, especially with the unexpected sunshine! And when we got back, Pål had made homemade pizza, perfect way to end a perfect day 🙂
