Alphabe Thursday.

This week we study the letter O for Ms Matlocks class. Since we have been in Oslo (Norway) on our trip I’d like to show some photo’s from the beautiful Oslo fjord.
To explain:  a fjord is a long, narrow deep inlet from the sea between steep slopes of a mountaines coast, common in Norway. As you can see many people live here. I can fully understand as it is beautiful .
If you want to know more about this fjord go here :




This I believe is a little church in the middle of the water,  outside on the left  were chairs.


There are several islands . Take a look at the link below about it all.


All so beautiful.

Back for Alphabe Thursday.


For Ms Matlocks class we had to study the letter N this week.

Since we were on a cruise visiting countries in Europe I chose  the word Normandy as we visited that beautiful part of France and that lovely little old city called Honfleur.  In this collage I just made a very small impression of photo’s of a very little  piece of Normandy. The tall bridge is called the Normandy bridge that is crossing the famous river Seine. The harbour photo I made in Honfleur.

We were so lucky to have the most beautiful weather during our cruise .

I will show more photo’s of this visit in later blogs.

Like in almost every city in most countries in Europe , when it is a beautiful day, many people have their coffee , lunch , dinner or drinks  on the pavements in front of the café’s and restaurants as you can see on this photo.

Doesn’t it look nice? You sit and watch the people passing by. Great fun.

Last weekend we visited friends who live in the country. I made photo’s of these  old farmhouses . I like the form of these houses. The roofs are built like a pyramid. I can’t find the proper English word for it. There are many of these farmhouses in the north west of our country.
And I have another sunrise I want to show you.

Long Weekend.


Today I am joining several memes  at once because I am busy watching the Olympic games. Do you watch the games? I love looking at all those young sportspeople from all over the world doing the best they can. Wonderful.







This beautiful sky I saw some days ago at sunrise, about 5 in the morning. I am usually not such an early riser but I couldn’t sleep. This is the real photo, no photoshopping.

The photo down here is of a sunset in the same week.
