Although the weather has taken a turn for the worse, the view across the fjord this afternoon was still nice because of the reflection in the flat calm water of the marina.
Sivertsen's shop is a rarity for several reasons. I suppose any shop lasting for 55 years as a family run business is pretty good, but the main thing which sets them apart from similar shops is the product knowledge which the staff have. Anyway congratulations to them, and long may they continue. They sell everything from soft fluffy cushions to badass power tools, door locks to kitchen knives, shower heads to home brew beer kits, etc.. etc.. An Aladdin's cave.
They also sell candles, and in Norway candles are very important. Maybe it's something to do with the harshness of the winter, but having a candle burning outdoors is a fairly common thing. This is of course helped by the fact that there is seldom enough wind to blow out a candle.
However, rain, pissing down in the quantity it has been tonight, meant that we had to shelter our 'aforedadoor candle' in a little lamp enclosure, which leads to the last picture in this reflective post.
yun's aa fir enoo.
