The regatta near Dyna lighthouse

Another photo from the Færder regatta. They're sailing past the Dyna lighthouse, a famous sight in the skerries of Oslo. The lighthouse is from 1874, and used to be very important for those who sailed here. Today it's mostly a tourist attraction, you can rent is as a place to have parties and they have a restaurant there as well.

That sounds really nice, Dina! I bet you would have enjoyed that... :)

I have to find myself a man and do exactly what you suggest. ;)

I like your photograph of the scene with the boats. It has a certain calm about it that appeals to me and is quite different from seeing the ocean swells.

Surprise, surprise, surprise. It's me!

What a delightful sight! There is beauty and grace in all those boats. Both the sky and the sparkling sea enhance the photo.

That's a beautiful photo! It's been almost 15 years since I was in Oslo - it looks like it's about time, again! :-)
