Hiking together in the forest

Oslo has it all. In the winter we live 15 minutes away from a place to ski, and in the summer we live 15 minutes away from a huge forest with beautiful quiet lakes and cozy streams.

Friday Annett and I left in the early evening to go camping in the near forests. The first day we camped at a small and quiet lake, just fifteen minutes with the bus and a ninety minute walk away of our apartment. There we swum and made sausages on our one-time grill. Apart from the mosquito's, it was a wonderful evening.

The next day we walked up to a much bigger lake. There we put up our tent on an island that was connected to the 'mainland' by a couple of tree trunks. Later Klaus, Ingvild and their very cute Labrador Balder joined us, and even later Kanutte and Tor-Helge as well.

Altogether it has been an invigorating weekend. We had a very cozy time swimming, playing with Balder and making fire and food. Hopefully we can repeat this one more time before we go on holiday to Croatia.
