Today's photos are taken from my balcony. The view is towards the center of Oslo and of the Oslo fiord. As you can see the spring has done wonders to the nature, it's green everywhere. Very lovely, after a long, cold winter.
The second photo is a closer look at the harbour area, showing furthest to the left the Oslo City Hall (the brown, square building). You can also see the small islands right outside the harbour. There are ferries going to and from these islands. On some you can only visit during daytime, but on others there are small cottages where people live during spring/summer. My grandparents had a cottage on one of these islands. Only 10 minutes by ferry and we were in paradise. These days you have to be a millionaire to get a cottage here, but in the beginning (early 1900, I think) they were put there to create summer homes for the working class people. Normally these people could not afford going away in the holidays, but not they had a great place where the family could live from Easter to Autumn.

We have run this blog for quite a while, and feel like we need a break to do other things. We will still post photos, but not as often as before. Hopefully you will continue to visit us from time to time. :-)
