We've had a lovely weekend, it was whitsun, so the kids were off school monday. On Sunday we went for a drive-this is the fjord which ends at our place, the island left of the middle is where the monastery ruins are, it is such a serene, lovely place. We didn't go there today, but we have plans for later.
Today (Monday) we did a whole different thing-we gathered the sheep and walked them to their summer pastures in the mountains. DS1, DS2 and the good neighbour helped out, the girls also came by the first lap of the way. This year we walked fast...usually it takes us two hours to walk from sealevel to where we let them go, at around 450m. It is steep and heavy to walk. But we did it in one hour...DS2 and I dragging ourselves up by pure willpower, while DS1 and TGN were running...And the sheep? All happy to get up there, knowing exactly where to go! We got them through the gate on top, and they never even paused, they just went off. See you all back in September! And yes- there ARE sheep in there, maybe if you click on those two pictures in the middle, you might see a couple of woollen 4-legged creatures...!
There is a great view from the top, again you can see the island with the monastery ruins,it is the dark island in the middle.
We had a great day.
wishing you a happy week!
