At Sea~

Off the coast of Norway.
So pristine and lovely in the fall sunshine.
There are scores of islands off the coasts of Norway and Sweden, all reachable only by boat.

The patrol boats are impressive and fast.
Our boat leaves quite a wake!
Smaller boats need to be careful not to get too close to the wake!
The coast of Sweden is remarkable too!
Internet service is few and far between. Please excuse me for not being able to follow your blogs and cheers to you today from the coast of Germany!

  1. I hope you had opportunity to see Stavekirke (800 year-old wooden churches) in Norway. Perhaps Geiranger Fjord (sp?) and the Jotenheimen Mts (sp?). The morning air when crossing a fjord is crisp, cold, and very refreshing.

    1. Yes I have been in the past to Stavanger, Trondheim, Gerainger, Bergen, Nord Kapp, all up and down the west coast of the fjourdlands on a prior month in beautiful Norway. This is the eastern side where we haven’t been. Never can get enough of Norway!

  2. Cindy, these are lovely photos…such colorful houses. I don’t often leave a comment because there are usually a gazillion people who’ve said what I think…But I do want you to know that I truly enjoy your blog and your photos are amazing; they allow me to visit parts of the world I’ll likely never get to. πŸ™‚

  3. The first pictures look like a model city built by someone even though I know they are real, the colorful houses just stand out. Enjoy your vacation and keep the pictures coming. A.G.

  4. Reblogged this on Spirit In Action and commented:
    Thank you Cindy! The water there is so dark and deep. Imagine it must be near autumn so far north-which is wonderful to imagine here where it is still over 90 every day! I love the colorful houses and So many trees!

  5. Is that common to see houses painted yellow and red like those in the pictures. Only two colors – ones’re red and the others’re yellow.

    The wakes look interesting too. I am wondering what make them that way.

    Nice photos!

  6. That first picture is so cute, and the houses so like toy blocks, it almost looks as if you took it with a tilt-shift lens. πŸ™‚ Lovely. I’m jealous of your travels and photo opportunities. Ken

  7. I somehow missed that you’re in Europe. How fun! Are you passing by Gothenburg on your way to Germany? I’ve lived there many years. It’s one of my favorite cities in the whole world. Enjoy your travels!

      1. Wonderful!! Enjoy Stockholm. It’s a very busy, but beautiful city. If you have time take a boat out to one of the islands. The East side of Sweden is very different compared to the West side.

        Have a wonderful day!

  8. Oh, such a great trip you are on. Thanks for sharing it with me, I love your photos. I find myself longing to travel, but I also love to be home. I imagine your hummingbirds are wondering where you are. πŸ™‚

  9. Dear Cindy, I love all the Scandinavian countries and the Norwegian coastline. I think this is one reason I like it so much in the Pacific Northwest. Thank you for sharing. Hugs! Veraiconica

  10. This is so nice of you to capture this area of the world, Cindy! My mother’s father’s family (Grandpa Mattson) came from Sweden. I loved the colorful and sweet little seaside cottages depicted here!

      1. I found an old black and white photographed book with Scandinavian sights. I have it on my coffee table and these photos you shared ‘bring them to life’ in color! Thanks for this, Cindy!
