It's not just about the novel

Northern light, blue skies


Here are a few photos from around Drøbak and Oslo. Chalkboard signs are ubiquitous in cities and Melkesjokolade is ubiquitious in Norway. I come from berry country; fresh Norwegian strawberries will meet or beat ours. And the waffles I get when I’m in Drøbak can’t be bettered anywhere.

On July 22, I flew to London from Oslo, leaving behind not only family and friends in Drøbak but the pure Norwegian light and lucid blue skies. I miss the people, light, and color still.  A few odds and ends posted for you. Soon, I’ll write about London and Oxford. With photos, of course!

  1. The “water for dogs” sign made me laugh. Thanks for sharing it. Where did you find it?

    • It was outside a cafe in Oslo, somewhere on Thorvald Meyers Gate, which is in Grünerløkka. Can’t say which one since we were just walking by. It made me laugh, too, so I took the shot.


  2. The colors of your sky pics are extraordinary.
