By the Sea

We have been enjoying different excursions each day.Yesterday we caught the train into Oslo and had a wonderful time walking along the waterfont there, sampling different flavours of icecream and browsing the trendy shops. We were on a hunt for a wonderful wool shop that Melissa had visited earlier, but were unable to find it until we saw the name " Husfliden" on a shop further down the street. It was 2.55pm and the shop closed at 3.00pm. I embarrassed my family by sprinting down that road as fast as roadrunner...just got there in time to buy 10 balls of beautiful alpaca 4 ply, in gorgeous shades of blues, greens, teals and acquas.

This is the Nobel Peace Center.
The "World Knitting Day" was held here a couple of weeks ago...I would have loved to have been there for that special event.

Today we visited a market in a nearby little town and then had a picnic on the beach...the sea was icy cold,but the locals were toughing it out.
