On the Beach - in March

It doesn't have to be snow and ice in March in Norway - not even rain and storm. It is even possible to have a picnic with a proper fire, perhaps for a barbecue, and enjoy a calm ocean and life on the beach.

Whole families are brought along, but this one seems to have been distracted. Too much sun (or smoke?) perhaps?

But one can still wonder how that log came to be attached to the wire above our heads ...

PS Have a nice week-end!

Strange and mysterious pictures . . . I'd like to be there.

Some days, I feel like that log!

Round here, one is forever seeing trainers (the shoe variety) hanging from wires or in trees.

The log is most mysterious.

Viola said...

Virkelig - dette var herlige bilder!! =) Og litt artig med den barnevogna på toppen i bakgrunnen på det første bildet! :D

Ja hva er bedre med picnic på en vakker strand! :)

Det siste bildet her.. nesten så jeg hadde trodd det var to bilder i ett, redigert sammen.. men jeg tror deg jeg..
Men.. hva gjør den der oppe?? =/

Ha en super helg! =)

A gorgeous day and looks like a fun time, but have to admit the log on the wire is odd! Sure makes a great accent for your BLUE sky though! Have a great weekend, Rune!!

Blue sky, water, a little camp site and a puzzling log position all make a good opportunity for a great photo shoot. Enjoyed -- barbara

What a nice way to spend a day.

I can't say I miss picnics and camping, though I'm glad I went in for that once upon a time. That looks like a very pleasant spot.

GW Bill Miller said...

The smoke and sky and sea all share the same shade of blue. Very pleasant.

I would guess that a tree grew up and entangled itself around the wire. When the tree was removed it was safer to leave the log attached rather than try to cut it loose.

Still looks too cold for me. But the sun must feel so good.

Lew said...

At least they keep the fire wood dry up there! We have been having unusually warm weather here.

Darlene said...

I'm constantly amazed how you come upon such wildly interesting shots. I can't believe that log sticking out of the wire. It looks to be a very substantial wire and wherever that log came from or to see where it now is puzzling indeed. But the thing that really gets me, is how in the world you come by these weirdly unusual things. It's like they were just meant to be there for you to photograph.

Of course the other pictures were lovely too. It looks to be a great place for a picnic, and I liked seeing the smoke against that blue blue sky. Another great post, Rune.

Ann said...

The world has so many crazies. In Australia, a shoe on the wire tells drug addicts there is a drug house around here.

Skikkelig vårstemning hos deg,
ser jeg!
Herlig å se disse bildene!
Ønsker deg ei god helg!

Malyss said...

What a strange and fascinating mood you captured here!
First, we're attracted by sea and sun. Then we notice that people were here.But where are they gone? Why did they leave things behind? Why the fire slowly ending? and why the log above?.. It's like if something happened here..Very mysterious! i like this post! A great beginning for a writing class, I'd say!
Have a nice week-end!

my 15 yr old son says, why don't they experiment in one place first. I tell him, New Zealand is too small, unlike USA.

Love deserted beaches out of season.

truels said...

It looks like you have some nice spring weather in Norway too?
...And that log: tells some funny stories .....

Anne-Berit said...

Du verden,så herlig dere har det på vestlandet.Nesten så en kan kjenne bållukta.
Ha en fin kveld og søndag:)

EG CameraGirl said...

Happy the family that can enjoy the beach in March. It's usually way too cold here in Ontario... although this year has been a bit different. I envy your blue skies. Here it has been quite overcast.

I have found logs attached to wires too. I guess company crews don't cut some tree limbs away soon enough, which I am sure is a never-ending job.

Virginia said...

Were there hot dogs to be roasted and marshallows? And I'm very puzzled about the log. What? No answer for us?

Herlig vårstemning! Har også vært velsignet med fantastisk vårvær i det siste. Vet jo aldri hvor lenge en får nyte det, det er tross alt bare midten av mars.

Ha en fin ny uke!

Vaguely unsettling images - where have the people gone? Bill is almost certainly right about the log; we have a similar example near here which occured just as he describes.

E Squared and Mui said...

More "momentary captures" ... one second the smoke is there; the next it is gone ... being in the right place at the right time is everything.

Emm said...

What lovely spring time photos! I miss the wide outdoors with campfires and lakes. Soon...

Rizalenio said...

Outdoors! Beautiful sunshine. How did that log get there? Hahaha.

Wenche said...

Nå ble det skikkelig vår Rune, haha må le av barnevognen i røyken....ikke det beste stedet å være ...men kanskje ikke noen oppi vognen ? :0) Du fanger som vanlig hendelser og omgivelser på en flott måte :0) Flotte bilder :0) Ha en fine kveld ! :0)

Paulie said...

Love going to the beach and don't get there often enough. . . but we got a little surprise last night here. . . drop by and see what it was. The mystery of that log may be just that forever. . . it wasn't me!

Gone native!
