When we were walking in the Mount Floyen woodland we came across a small lake, Skomakerdiket. Two girls stood by the shore, next to some canoes and a string of life jackets.
“Would you like to have a canoe and go out on the lake?” they asked.
Deb declined and chose to take pictures from the shore, but the rest of us were strangely drawn to the idea. I think we all have a bit of the Viking within us.
Well, either that or underlying maturity issues…

Hank reckons that with English blondes and red-heads in the family, the chances of “a little Viking” in that boat is fairly high! Just try to stay out of trouble, if you can. If you can’t, well…good thing the Norwegians have mellowed somewhat in 1000 years.
Ha ha! Maybe Hank’s right!
