Wet tourist in Norway

We see many strange birds among the tourists that visit Bergen during the summer. I spotted this one among the souvenir stalls near our local Fish-market today. Despite the rain that was pouring down and a temperature around 15 degrees C, he seemed to have kept his playful mode and to bring his own sunshine.

I think the locals have a lot to learn from him.

15 degrees C, but you are in the northern hemisphere ??? LOL

I don't want to know what your winter is like if your summer is so cool.

If you can't sing in the rain, then dance! (or is it dangle in the rain?). 15 C sounds comfortable - we have been around 35 C for a while. Whatever the weather, it's a great shot!

Det var en livelig og artig fugl, hehe. Har du funnet artsnavnet på denne? Tror det kan være en "blaut langhalset tøystruts"... men jeg er ikke sikker. Stilig var den :)

Hi Rune he looks like the big bird in Sesame Street!
Thanks for your visit to the Tallships. I thought the Norwegian ship was a three-master. At least that was the information the newspaper gave. The other types of ships were the barquentine, the three-master( fully rigged), some schooners and barques. Anyway whatever type of boat they are all beautiful!!;)

Poor bedraggled thing!

Sylvia said...

Funny picture! It's raining everywhere isn't it?

Reader Wil said...

Hi Rune! Thanks for the correction! The problem is although I am a seaman's daughter, I still don't know the various types of ships, but I shall correct the nameof the beautiful Norwegian sailingboat. I took the liberty of copying your photo, but I shall not use it. It's such a beauty!! I hope you don't mind, otherwise I delete it. If you see more mistakes please do tell me.
