...long and winding road...

Thought I'd share a couple more photos, these are from Hoddeviksanden, which is supposed to be as close to a surfers paradise as you can get! There are "long" waves-perfect for surfing-or so they say. There are also strong undercurrents. A reporter from NRK, the Norwegian Broadcasting Company, came here to make a story for a youth programme (called "Newton"). He didn't notice the currents...he was out in a wetsuit, and just drifted off! A young surfer got him back.
There are several beautiful beaches around here, but the sea is pretty cold- there is nothing between us and Iceland but the ocean. Somehow the landscape too reminds me of Iceland...

It does kind of remind one of Iceland, maybe by Djúpavík or something. Lovely pictures.

Beautiful, as always. Guess I am going to have to save up my pennies and come to Norway to see all the beauty.
I guess it is somehow true that the grass is always greener on the other side. When I looked at the pictures I had taken and posted on here it seemed somehow more lush than when I just looked at it.
