Ship o hoy

Finally! Finally, we we are heading for Sulo again! After week on week with weekend work and shit it´s country life for me. Free to run, free to sleep on the couch, free to scare the gulls and sheep, and free to overeat on dried fish. Can it be improved? No it can not! So have a good time, because I will!

Hiking in Kvitsøy part III

The lighthouse on Kvitsøy is from 1700. But then it was a kind of burning light-swing-thing.Stupid light, because then they had to burn a fire in a bowl,and it’s not a single tree to use as wood on the entire island. Then in 1829 or thereabout, they made a new one. It is 48 meters above sea level on top, and it’s the perfect height to look for sheep. Not that one needs to look so much for them, but scouting is scouting. Complete package! So I hereby deliver an application: Hire me as a lighthouse keeper! I am the natural choice! Beautiful, charming, attentive and smells good. What more do you need in the top of a lighthouse?

Dreaming of Sulo

Look at that weather! The wind, the sun and the salty sea. These are the days I wish we were at our country house on the Ilay of Sulo! Running wild. Chasing sheep. Eating dried fish under the open skies and rolling, rolling, rolling in the gras while the geese fly south. Sigh! But my dad say that we shall go next weekend! Cant´wait! Can´t wait!

My mum come from a small iland called Kvitsøy. They have nothing there, but sheep. And a few cows and lobster fishers. Population of 538 and not a single wolfhound! It´s a disaster! So when I wisit the population goes up 100%. As a result of this, they also have fences. Everywhere! Barbed wire fences! It´s pure evil! How can I chase sheep when they put up barbed wire you may ask? Not a problem! I use my dads jacket. Place it over the fence, and then I jump! The result? Sheep smorgasbord! In my dreams anyways….
