Climbing to see the sun

Today, my youngest child had a free day from preschool.  Since our house lies in the shadows of a nearby mountain, the sun hasn’t reached our home yet.  We decided to bundle up and climb up the hill behind our house to where the snow was aglow with rosy light.  This was our view:

    1. Yes, definitely a day to remember, and since she hadn’t see the sun for over 2 and a half months due to the polar night season, it was a great experience for us both. You should have seen the look of delight on her face!

    1. We are blessed to live with the mountains behind our house and the sea below. It was fun to see her face when she saw the sun for the first time in over 2 and a half months. She even giggled with delight 🙂

    1. One of the best things about living without the sun for 2 months is how much we all appreciate it when it comes back. My youngest daughter, only 4 years old, was the one with me and you should have seen the look on her face. She was delighted to see the sun again.

  1. That’s a wonderful view! We have been in Honningsvag today, February 6th, and it’s been overcast but dry. We looked at the shop but think you must close over winter. Good to have seen where you work, and we recorded ourselves on the town webcam to remember the day.

    1. Wish we could have met each other! Hope you enjoyed your day, even if it was overcast. Great idea to record yourselves on the webcam! I don’t think so many tourist that visit here know where it is. Enjoy the rest of your journey.

      1. Thank you. Maybe there will be another opportunity! Right now we are leaving Kirkenes. Of course, we are in Honningsvag tomorrow morning at 5.30 am if you would like to visit!
