In true fashion, I’ve left my packing until today. I did laundry the other day, so I have clean cloths to put in my suitcase. I did a general clean-up in the house – floor swept, dishes washed and put away, plants watered, etc. I went out to fuel up the car and, on the way back I stopped along the road for a last photo, then stopped for a final visit with tante Arna.
It’s kinda sad to be leaving Lofoten, but I’ll have a couple of days visiting in Oslo and really looking forward to getting home on Wednesday.
Ingbritt had arranged for a friend \to pick me up at 12:30 to take me to the airport in Leknes. I managed to get a couple of shots from the plane as we took off from Leknes.
I flew from there to Bodø, had a 1 hour stopover before my 1.25 hr. flight to Oslo with SAS. I took the train from Gardermoen, the Oslo airport, to the central train station, a 25 minute ride. My cousin, Even, picked me up there and we drove to his house. I’m spending 2 nights here with he and Grethe.
They had prepared a lasagna and salad dinner, which was excellent, and then we caught up on each others’ lives over tea/coffee and a really good apple pie.
I ended this tiring day with a FaceTime call to Bonnie.
