Balestrand, Norway Part 4

For the second half of our time in Norway we drove SEVEN hours, took multiple ferries, and ended up in the lovely, small, picturesque town of Balestrand. It was g.o.r.g.e.o.u.s. and to be honest, reminded me a lot of the ol' pacific northwest!

Oh, isn't Norway just so charming? I love all of Scandinavia! (Though it wouldn't be hard to argue that I'm a little biased.)

You'll probably think this is random but my fave photo of these is the fence one in the middle of the post. :-)

It really is stunning there isnt it? It's such a change from the Italians...and it does somewhat remind me too, though vaguely, of the NW. But with so much more character! -Izzzz

My exact thoughts like Kelly, are "charming", quaint, serene...absolutely beautiful pictuers, Molly. I love the colors!!! The white flowers draping over the bench, the sailboat, flowers in the tub, pink charis, white fence surrounding the white house...the fjords (of course)...pretty much all of them!
