There was an out-house with sod growing on the roof.

We drove along Lake Olden, where the high mountains miror onto the surface of the lake, to Stryn. Here we ate lunch at a deli. Each of us had a cappacino, one piece of quiche and two pastries shared. The total cost for our lunch was between 60.00 and 70.00 US !!!

Sara at the deli (Grandma says they grow 'em big here):

A beer is about 12.00 and a pop is 9.00 for a glass. A bottle of pop at a convenience store is about 2.50 still expensive.

Sara had a sore throat today so mom bought her "cough drops":

We also just visited a wood carving studio. It was amazing what he can do. www.norwegian-woodcarving.com go visit its kind of interesting.

Wow, those glacier photos are breathtaking! Quite amazing country. It's so cute that Laura and Virginia dressed alike--just like sisters. Looks like everyone's having a blast.

Glede seg over været!
