I couldn’t help but take a closer look and snap a few photos when we walked past this abandoned house/cabin… full of stories, secrets, lives led. Black and white seemed fitting.

The weather has taken a little turn: Temperatures above freezing, wind and occasional rain showers. Which means that some areas are no longer ski-friendly :) but it also means that my son can skip rocks in the ocean and my daughters can look for treasures.
And I have to admit that I’m not upset to see tufts of grass sticking up through the snow. Spring is on it’s way!
We are so blessed to live surrounded by mountains and the sea. There is beauty all around. The low tide created lovely patterns in the sand, with puddles of water reflecting the shifting sky. More treasures from the sea.
Yes, Gray is ok.

In Norway, we have an expression that you might be unfamiliar with, depending on where you live in the world…. it’s called “perfect Easter weather” (perfekte påskevær). We don’t mean green grass, daffodils and tulips, and short sleeves. We mean this:
Snow, sun and little or no wind… perfect weather for Norwegians to enjoy during their week of Easter vacation at their cabins, skiing, snowmobiling and spending time outdoors.
Today’s conditions are what we like to call perfect Easter weather.
Hope it continues through next week….

The Arctic Race of Norway will be coming to the North Cape on August 14, 2014. If you are considering being a spectator and cheering on the cyclists as they race towards the North Cape Globe, then here are a few good reasons to travel to 71˚N, join in the festivities and explore the area.
Reindeer: If you haven’t seen them up close, then here’s your chance. These guys like to hang out in our backyard.
Majestic landscape: Islands, mountains and the sea.

The midnight sun is just around the corner. In the next 6 weeks we will go from 14 hours of daylight to 24/7. Today the sun rises at 5:15 am and will set at 7:25 pm. This is the view from our house.. sun and snow, lots and lots of snow.
