Friday, November 6.
Woke this morning to these views of Trondheim from our room at Virginia and Nutty’s.
After breakfast we walked down to the International School where Virginia works. A very cosy school, where everyone greeted us with a smile. The photo above shows the school buildings. The building to the right is three stories. The school runs from 2-16 year olds. The buildings are part of an old military complex of which the remains of the old fort are also. It gave great views of the city also.
The main stronghold at the fort. All the gun emplacements faced toward Sweden where they thought the threat would come from. Only problem was that the Germans attacked from the water on the other side.😳😳
Left the fort and walked doewn to the cathedral, passing more of those lovely wooden buildings.
Crossed the canal into the city centre. What magnificent buildings along the watetline, and their fantastic reflections.
Guess we have been to Hell and back, and if we stayed here too long Hell would freeze over.
1st November, everyone is required to change to winter tyres. These have steel studs embedded in the rubber. When you purchase a new car here, you are supplied with two sets of wheels and tyres, one for summer and one for winter. Photo is a winter tyre
We went to visit Nutty’s mum Sigvor and dad Jardar for afternoon tea. Amazing waffles and brown cheese.
Do you want to see my knitting room. Sigvor is a prolific knitter. While she was in Australia she showed the Neilsen clan how to knit Norway style.
Sigvor’s pram which was built by her dad when she was a little girl.
They do have TV, but Nutty and the cat entertained us before dinner.
Speaking of dinner, Virginia on deck.
