Good morning, Brooklyn friends,
I meant to give a sign of life much sooner, but between traveling, sightseeing and meeting new friends, the time slipped by.  As I had mentioned in my last post,  I flew to Norway to spend a few days with my friends Joe and Eunice on a beautiful island in the Hardanger fjord. It was my first time in Norway.
What a magnificent landscape.  What a photogenic place. The red boathouses and barns, the white sailboats on the dark, clear water, the glaciers and waterfalls, all are amazingly beautiful and charming.
I was lucky enough that the sun shone during most of my stay.
Thank you, Joe and Eunice for introducing me to your friends and family and for sharing your island.

I am now in the Auvergne, in central France.  Apparently, it has been raining for the past 10 days and it is still raining now, so that I have not ventured far.  More photos and news as soon as the sun returns.

The Norway Bureau of Tourism should play you. I always heard Norway was exquisite (but expensive), and now I really want to go there. Pristine deliciousness, and that last picture of the horse looks like a unicorn! Magical beauty you captured.

You are all too kind. Thanks. As I said, Norway is pretty photogenic. All I had to do was point my camera.
