One of my grandmothers lived near a fjord in Norway, and while we were there I wondered what it would be like. The scenery is beyond beautiful, but the winters are pretty harsh.
I took these shots of houses on the Eidfjord.
That looks like an inn or hotel on the left, but I’m pretty sure the red building is a house. I learned that Norwegians paint their houses mostly red, gold or white. Red is the cheapest and white the most expensive, so it’s kind of a status symbol.
Here’s a closer look:
This tiny village might be a little too remote for me. I like having a city close by.
I do like the particular shades of red and gold used here. Can you believe their view?
And then there’s the fjord….
Great weekend, everyone. Mother Nature seems to be on a bit of a rampage these days. Puerto Rico, Mexico, the list just goes on and on. I really hope the natural disasters are done for now.
