Trip over Valentine's Park

We took a trip over Valentine's Park with Frankie and Scarley to have a coffee and some lunch in the Gardener's Cottage cafe, by Valentine's mansion. Stopping off on the way there and back to feed the squirrels as usual.

Crazy Golf!

On Sunday, we went over to the new Moby Dick crazy golf with the girls, which was good fun (despite quite a long queue to get on)...sadly nobody got a hole in one! Scarlet was the closest when one of her first shots rolled across the hole, but was going too fast to fall in.

Week in Fræna

We're just back from a week with Siv's Mum and brother in Fræna, spending time catching up with friends as well. We went out to the new tourist centre at Atlanterhavsveien, and onto the old church at Kvernes with its distinctive decorations on one day, while we helped Eva pick a bucket of redcurrents as well from Siv's Mum's garden. I took a lot of photos during the week, a selection are below, the rest are here:
