Visitors!

On Saturday, Pam's friend and fellow teacher Misty from the USA came to visit for the week, and on Sunday my American colleague Norm and his wife Ann came to visit for a few days. Here's a few images from our adventures...
Sunday evening we attended the spring performance of the Nidaros boy's choir at the Nidarosdomen cathedral. It's always a treat to attend music performances here, the 800+ year old building is stunning and the acoustics are fantastic.


We did a driving tour of Trondheim, stopping in the pier district to look at the fjord. The sky was brilliant and I caught this picture of Munkholmen out in the fjord. I still like saying the word 'fjord'.


No visit is complete with a trip to the Hegra festning...


... and a visit to the see the Bronze age viking carvings at Leirfall...


... and a picnic at Steinvikholmen. This place is a medieval DaVinci inspired fortress on a small island. It's accessible by a footbridge. Today, a kindergarten was also picnicking, and those kids were excited to show us an old fish head they had found and were now parading it all about on the end of a stick. We grilled fish and played a game of Kubb (also called Kongespill), a Scandanavian wood block throwing game.
