Had to take a different bus to work today than my usual one, and the one I took went through the city. It makes for different photo opts than I have on my regular route. Here, we passed the light rail train that was just leaving the city.
Sunday was just as gorgeous as it had been the last week. Summer heat and sun and we wanted to get a lot out of the day. We decided to take the boat out to a small island and have lunch and maybe swim a bit there. This is down by the harbor where our boat and the book cafe I have many photos of are located.
Later in the day we went to the beach as it was a bit too windy and cold to swim on the island - much better in the bay where the beach is.

This is one of the iconoclastic images from Bergen, the city where I come from and reside. From Wikipedia: Bryggen Bryggen (the wharf) has since 1979 been on the UNESCO list for World Cultural Heritage sitesThe city of Bergen was founded in 1070. The area of the present Bryggen constitutes the oldest part of the city.
We spent the whole day in the city center, going to the library so the girls could pick out some more books to read, went to see an art exhibition that my youngest daughters’ class had a part in as well as the Master exhibition of the students from Bergen art school. My youngest is really fascinated and interested in art and exhibitions, and loved the guided tour and all the interaction the kids got with the guide.
Afterwards we wandered around a bit in the city as it was a fairly nice day. Some rain, but also sun in between. Further down at Bryggen the Farmer’s market had their sale booths, and we sampled some of the goodies and bought a really tasty brown goat cheese.

Day 103/366: Morning Glory
“What are you going to do with your life?” In one way or another it seemed that people had been asking her this forever; teachers, her parents, friends at three in the morning, but the question had never seemed this pressing and still she was no nearer an answer… “Live each day as if it’s your last’, that was the conventional advice, but really, who had the energy for that? What if it rained or you felt a bit glandy? It just wasn’t practical. Better by far to be good and courageous and bold and to make difference. Not change the world exactly, but the bit around you. Cherish your friends, live passionately and fully and well with the means you got, within what is. Experience new things. Love and be loved, if you ever get the chance.
