Scenic Drives On The Lofoten Islands

9 Sep 2012 – in Vestvågøy & Flakstadøy

Tue: Happy Bday May and rain rain go away but what a pleasant surprise to visit this interesting Viking museum in Borg where archeological finds bear witness of a rich Chieftain, being a part of the Scandinavian cultural elite. Several finds are pointing towards the fact that Borg had extensive contact with not only Norway but the European continent.

Was even fortunate enough to buy this 3kg+ salmon off the hatcheries and made salmon in nearly everyways for 3 meals! Yummy, delicious and fresh fish for 3 people/3 meals NOK250 S$54.

Wed: Happy 1st Bday Olai, youngest grandchild. Another scenic drive via Sennesvika, Steine, Stamsund/route 815 to Henningsvær for lunch at Kafe Lysstøperiet*** Good shrimp open-face sandwich at this candle makers/cafe where the candles burn down in this lovely web shapes.

Thu: KK found a hiking path at Krystad/Kvavika where he took a solo hike. PP & decided that the weather was too unreliable and drove to Ytresand, Ramberg/crazy people trying to surf…

Flakstad kirke/russian influence, Gravdal/Buksnes kirke,

Ballstad, another delightful village with painting on the wall.

Am still 3 days behind with postings but it is soooo difficult to choose what pix to upload in additional to that the wordpress upload is reaching its limit and an upgrading will be necessary!
