Norwegian Barbeque

Another wonderful, sunny winter Sunday in Oslo and I had the privilege to have a nice cook out with my wife. We were heading out for Paradise Island (read “Frozen Paradise” for more pictures and information!). We packed our back bag with coffee, juice, hotdogs, mustard and ketchup and some snacks. Of course I also remembered my handy pocket knife as always when out in the nature.

Here you see me grilling hotdogs on a disposable grill. What more can a man ask for as a perfect end to the week? Again this reminds me of my childhood when my parents took us out for picnics most weekends. We didn’t have any disposable grills at that time, but cooked the hotdogs on an open fire.

Right beside us, there were some other families who enjoyed the lovely weather. As you can see, the smallest got a ride in their carriages. I noticed that they had made a snow man and had to capture it of course. I tried to remember, but I have lost track of how many snow men I have made during my life.

Although the water is frozen the weather was warm and sunny, so sunny in fact my wife and I actually got suntanned sitting out on our “beach front” picnic! Between the fast land and the island there is this nice fjord, and since it is still solid ice, a lot of people had the Sunday trip walking on water. It looks more or less like a migration don’t you think?
