Wet and Windy in Bergen

I'm spending a few days in Bergen, trying to learn a few tips on MQ. I know Bergen is supposed to be wet, but this headline from the local newpaper shows the downpours I'm currently experiencing are a bit extreme even for here:

In between the hefty wind, rain and hail, I managed to have a bit of a look around the town and see the Xmas decorations, and some of the town more famous sights like the old buildings along 'Bryggen' (which is a world heritage site).

Day out celebrating Dad's Birthday

We went to Santore in Exmouth Market for Lunch to celebrate Dad's Birthday next week. After a very relaxing time in the restaurant, we saw off June and Grace, then the rest of us went to the Sekforde Arms for a couple of drinks (and a game of darts which I won on a double 7!) before coming home.

Valentine's Park in the Autumn sunshine

After a couple of weeks of grey, drizzly days, the sun finally came out today, so Siv and I took a walk over Valentine's Park among the Autumn colours, having a coffee and cake in the cafe.

Siv and I went to see the film Oslo, Aug 31 at the Renoir cinema by Russell Square today. A very good, if slightly sad, film, with lots of memories for us of various Oslo spots we know. We had lunch at Cagney's restaurant afterwards before weaving our way down to Picadilly Circus where Siv bought a puffa jacket in Lillywhites.
