A walk near Fredrikstad

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!

Sunshine! And slippery rocks...

Nice views down to a boathouse and boat.

We followed the coast, where it was usually easy to walk on the rocks.

Beautiful coastline

The heather was already starting to bloom, so pretty!

You can tell where the wind usually comes from around here…

Some of the rocks look like submarines!

Submarine or rock? :)

Beautiful bay, with two sandy beaches nearby.

We turned back into the forest from here, past this dreamy cabin…

Very pretty views on top of the hill, with bare rock, flowering heather and beautiful trees.

So pretty with all the heather!

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 🙂
