Bærums Verk Dagene

20 Jun 2017 – In Beautiful Weather

Sat: safe & sound in OSL after 8+hrs flight from FLL and nearly 2hrs in line at the passport control@the OSL airport. Kinda of expected this as the previous 2visits were the same! You do not have to stand in the long line if you are holding EU or Norwegian passports or if you are Norwegian residences. But all worth it to see #6

Lush and green from the rains which fell the past few weeks. Blue&strawberry flowers in bloom but will not have the chance to taste them.

Sun: Happy Father’s Day to all Fathers. Bærums Verk/Bærums Ironworks is a village in Bærum in Akershus with a pop of about 8000.

It is located on both sides of the river Lomma. Iron ore was found in these areas the 1600s and a foundry was built near the farm of Wøyen, further downriver from today’s Bærums Verk.

Had an outdoor lunch@Lille Cafe and the seafood open-face sandwiches hit the spot; #6 was not complaining about his huge soft-ice with toppings.

Today you will find more than 50 shops, restaurants, workshops and galleries with handicrafts and art in this village.

A small metal ladybug for the plants here and a lilac-coloured glass♥for my hand-blown glass collection.

Mon: movie date with #6@Saga – Captain Underpants, the First Epic Movie is the pick for elementary schoolers with the potty humour. Based on the popular book series by Dav Pilkey, the story follows two prank-loving best friends who hypnotize their angry principal into believing he’s Captain Underpants, the hero of the boys’ comic books…

First time sleeping thru’ most of the movie at a full-price ticket with 3D-glasses on! only to be periodically wakened by #6’s delightful giggles 🙂

Sooo good to hear that – this sweet and innocent child is growing up too fast.

Tue: Bjørn does not believe in planting plants if they do not produce edible results, fortunately the neighbour’s garden is quite a feast to the eyes where flowering plants are concerned. A classic symbol of grace and elegance, the pink rose is often given as a token of admiration and appreciation, so admiration and appreciations to the neighbour’s garden.

A lovely walk to Eivind, my GP’s clinic@Pilestredet Park to drop off some packages, this time taking another route to see new sites –  Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences (HiOA) is Norway’s largest state university college@Pilestredet. Sofies gate 1 – used to walk by here when May was living@Krafts gate and liked the archway opening into a green courtyard

Eivind was not in today as he is now semi-retired and busy travelling. Have known him since our student days in Dublin! Will try to catch up the next visit. His pix credit is to him.
