…will be right back.
A quiet spot in Norway, going North to the Lofoten. The water is surprisingly greenish,
and then as blue as blue can be.

Ahhh, brings back lots of memories. First picture from the lake below Svartisen.
Svartisen is a collective term for two glaciers located in northern Norway. The system consists of two separate glaciers; Vestre (western) Svartisen (221 km2), which is the second largest glacier on the Norwegian mainland after Jostedalsbreen.
Østre (eastern) Svartisen (148 km2), which is the country’s fourth largest.
One of the outlet glaciers of Svartisen, Engabreen ends at the lowest point of any glacier on the European mainland, at 20 meters above sea level (in 2007).
Svartisen is part of Saltfjellet-Svartisen national park, located in the Saltfjell mountain range.
Second picture is on the ferry from Bodø to Moskesnes. Moskenes is a village situated on the southern part of the island of Moskenesøya in the traditional district of Lofoten. Quiet see, quiet water, which is rare. Fantastic trip 😀 When we returned 10 days later we experienced the typical Lofoten weather, rain, full storm, the smallest of the ferries were cancelled, to big waves, lots of seasick people. But what a trip, experiencing this kind of weather. Must add that neither my son nor my husband, or myself for that matter, gets seasick.
Thank you, Tone!
Big hug, Dina
