While Abby was visiting in the summer of 2009, a friend took us to Solstrand in Os for lunch. The lunch was delicious and the views of the gardens and Bjørnefjord were fantastic – and I didn’t have my camera.
So a couple of days ago Jan and I decided to drive to Os for lunch and BRING THE CAMERA.
The day wasn’t a great one for photography, and anyway my photos aren’t as gorgeous as the professional ones on Solstrand’s website. But they are meaningful to me; there are several statues to accompany the view, but there is one that invokes such an emotional response from me I have to visit her alone. When I first saw her – while walking with Abby – I felt she was me, gazing across the distance between my physical location and my daughters’ locations.
It’s no surprise that she is my “default” Facebook profile image.
