Alphabe Thursday.


This week we study the letter O for Ms Matlocks class. Since we have been in Oslo (Norway) on our trip I’d like to show some photo’s from the beautiful Oslo fjord.
To explain:  a fjord is a long, narrow deep inlet from the sea between steep slopes of a mountaines coast, common in Norway. As you can see many people live here. I can fully understand as it is beautiful .
If you want to know more about this fjord go here : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oslofjord

This I believe is a little church in the middle of the water,  outside on the left  were chairs.

Lieve Riet,

Wat hebben jullie toch veel gezien op jullie reis. Dat is echt een groot voordeel van het cruisen. Mooi de foto's van het Noorse landschap en de dorpjes.

Fijne avond!

Wat schitterend is het daar, het moet heel bijzonder zijn om door de fjorden te varen.

"Création" said...

Ohhh lieve Rietje, wat een zalige beelden allemaal. Wat me opvalt is dat ze daar allemaal van die bijzonder fraaie huizen hebben,
ik zie allemaal mooie dakkapelltjes, erkers en
balkonnen, echt schitterend.

En wat een giller zeg,
dat lieflijke kerkje midden
op het water, heel bijzonder
en dat zal je niet snel nog
eens tegenkomen denk ik zo.

Hoe gaat het met de gordelroos
van je man, jakkes, daar ben
je zo beroerd van. En gaat het
met jou al wat beter? Zelf
ben ik ook al een week behoorlijk min, duizelig, misselijk,
en tegenstribbelende darmen,
pffff, zal wel weer een
virusje zijn denk ik.

Veel sterkte met alles,

Liefs
Josephine ♥

It reminds me of Oregon! Simply beautiful...

Love the photos of Oslo fjord. Beautiful. I always think that the cottages of a seaside village are one of the loveliest sites. When I saw the first one here it reminded me of Port Jefferson Harbor, NY. A place that I just love.
Great post!

Mary said...

Beautiful scenery! I love the floating church :)

This is truly a lovely place. How amazing the church on an island, makes you wonder did they take a ferry out there? Great post for O!

I enjoyed your photos--yet another interesting place to visit. WHERE are those lottery winnings when I need them?

Emille said...

Oh the fjords is one of the things on my list I really want to see (and maybe paint!) It looks like Oslo is a beautiful city!

The church really is a wonder! I love your beautiful photos! Happy weekend!

Jeanne, backyard neighbor said...

Wow! The photos you shared about Oslo are so wonderful. I agree, there are many people enjoying this lovely place. It is so pretty with the water and greenery everywhere. The Church in the water is so quaint. I guess you need a boat to live in Oslo. Smile. A great story in pictures Riet.

HUGS, Jeanne

Andy David said...

Wow, what beautiful pictures. wish I could visit sometime.

Jenny said...

I am mesmerized by that little church out in the water.

I can imagine hymns drifting over the water like waves when they have a service.

Just beautiful!

Thanks for sharing these outstanding pictures for the letter 'O'.
