A bike ride

A bike ride

Four photos from my bike ride in the forest today. Spring is here, but last week the weather was unusually cold and it even snowed a couple of times (meanwhile in Tromsø it was 17 degrees… crazy!). Yesterday it rained non stop so I was glad when the sun came out again today. I’m excited that the hiking and biking season has started again 🙂

Nedre Blanksjø, a pretty little lake

Spring is here! I went for a walk along the fjord, enjoying the pretty clouds and the sunshine. I found a lot of “blåveis”, a blue flower (common hepetica in English) which is a well known sign of spring in Norway but it doesn’t grow in Tromsø 😉 Geese are arriving in big numbers, there are buds on the trees – I love it 🙂

Sunset at Bygdøy

Warm light at sunset



Today was a gloriously sunny day in Oslo, and I decided to go for a walk on the Bygdøy peninsula. There is a coastal path which goes around the whole peninsula, and there are some really nice beaches. Lots of people were out to enjoy the sunshine, there were even people having BBQ’s and picnics on the beach, with the children playing by the water – never mind that the fjord is frozen!! 😀 The atmosphere was really nice, and it made me long for summer 🙂 The sun was setting by the time I reached Paradisbukta – it was so pretty…

Several boats were frozen into the ice

Pancake ice!

Doesn't it almost seem like summer?

The rock formations on Bygdøy are really interesting

Fancy a swim?

Some people were feeding the gulls - which meant I could take photos of them :D
