dark side of the moon

with pyrotechnics and lots of noise roger waters enthrawled us with his "dark side of the moon" concert at the packed viking football stadium under fabulous blue skies, there was of course lots of singing to all the favorites: «In the flesh» «Mother» «The Wall» «Set the controls for the heart of the sun» «Shine on you crazy diamond» «Have a cigar» «Wish you were here» «Southampton dock» «Fletcher memorial» «Perfect sense» «Leaving Beirut» «Sheep» «Speak to me/Breathe» «On the run» «Time» «Money» «Us and them» «Any colour» «Brain damage/Eclipse» «Happiest days/Another brick in the wall» «Vera/Bring the boys back home» and to end it all the brilliant «Comfortably numb»

warm water

the ski rack had to come off today to make way for the kayak rack and it was off to Ims for a tour along the fjord coast, in amongst the kelp and winkles, lovely water temperature and even moments for sunbathing on quiet inlets with coffee and sandwiches! more opportunity for the underater housing

a great way to spend the day, beach combing along the Jæren coast, even saw a red squirrel, amazing how much smaller they are than the greys

St Hans

traditional midsummers bonfire, to try and keep the sun up high in the sky for even longer, fires burnt all over norway, but something tells me that the days might start to get shorter from here on in (having just had the longest day on record!) we did get treated to some excellent marsh mallows ;-)
