Some glimpses from our summer at the farm.

This is where we stay. Our little red “bryggerhus“, it’s supposed to be the oldest building on the farm.

By the sea, such beauty.

And this summer the unthinkable happened.. The huge oil spill catastrophe caused by the tanker FullCity. We tried to do some cleaning up, but I don’t know if it was of any help. Some say the oil will be gone by next summer, some say it will take decades. Seabirds are dead by the hundreds and life in the sea is contaminated as well. Even though our area wasn’t among the worst, it was still pretty bad in some places. Lumps of oil, a thin film of oil on the surface of the sea, the smell of oil from seaweed..

The flowers are innocent and unaware of human hybris and sloppiness, a fatal combination indeed.

And so is our one-year-old little girl and her favorite animal, Pus.

    too bad about the oil spill. That’s just so sad.
    Your daughter is adorable, and the rock reminds me of Maine, where my parents spend the summers (and I spend a week, in their house).
