A Weekend in Sørlandet -- Part 2: The Coast

The southern coast of Norway is known for its picturesque seaside villages of white wooden houses with red tile roofs.  Our host took us to visit Brekkestø on a small island just off the coast. What a beautiful place! We  enjoyed walking the streets,  climbing to the highest point, and watching the fishing boats at the harbor. There were no sounds of traffic; only the breeze, the waves, sea gulls, and an occasional fishing boat motor.

I love these blue doors.

After exploring Brekkestø, we headed to a more remote, rocky coastal area. I'm impressed with how rocky the Norwegian coast is and how people manage to build homes there.

Thank you, Anne-Grete and Ole-Petter, for a memorable, beautiful weekend.
