Although early spring seemed promising, and we have had a few nice days over the last few months, for the most part it’s been a cold and rainy late spring/summer in the Bergen area.
You never know what the coastal climate and mountains will create. I do enjoy the energy I have in cool weather, the feel of drizzle on my face, and the sound of rain dripping outside my window while I’m sleeping – but enough is enough! I’m ready for some extensive warm weather and sunshine.
This was the forecast a couple weeks ago:

This has been my view out front across the fjord all day today:
Sigh. We’re in our own little fog-shrouded cocoon – I loved it when that happened to our townhouse on the side of Løvstakken, but it would pass fairly quickly. Today has been constant!
Please understand, I’m not really complaining … while watching the tour boats on the fjord sailing past Ole Bull’s villa, I’ve made the comment to friends and family that tourists spend a lot of money to travel to this part of the world to take in the sites and experiences that I have available if I sit on my bench just outside my sliding front door.
But Norwegian-Sea-fogged-in days like today do get to me after a while.
To end with a *little* sunshine … on July 6th Jan and I did get to enjoy a delayed 4th of July American Independence Day “let’s grill outside” celebration:
And this is our expected weekend weather:
Warm sunshine! Yay!
