From Risor, we needed to get a bit nearer to the airport of Trop, where we had to be on friday. We decided to try our luck at Larvin, right there, where our journey started 10 days before. We were lucky and managed to find the camping site, where we initially booked a cabin that we couldn’t take, due to the ferry being canceled. It turned out to be a huge camping site, the biggest so far.
Dropping off our luggage and driving back to Stavern, the nearby city. At first it seemed to be THE tourist town, but than we found the nearby fort and discovered a great swimming site, right beside it. Not having any trunks with us, we headed back to Solplassen Og Rakke Camping (at least I believe this was it) and took our chances there. Surpringsinly, the camping site is located at the same bay, as the fort and as we where enjoying the fresh water, a colorline ferry passed by to enter Larvik harbor. Another sign, that our holiday was almost over.
After dinner we went down to the water again and climbed along the shore. A gull was flying by, crying all the time above us. A few steps further, we found the reason: its offstping was sitting on a rock nearby.
Further on the route along the south shore of Norway, we reached Risor, which is called the pearl of Norway. Nice little white town, with and ancient church, a harbor right in the city center where people drop by via boat, do their shopping and drive off again. The girls went shopping as well, where as Koeby and me took took our position at the harbor and tried to get some decent shots of gulls flying by – yeah right, I am obsessed with picturing sea gulls, got me.
At about 5pm we went back to camping and put on our bathing suits just to find out, that the water there was not the best. Anayway, it was quite refreshing. Noodles for dinner with a long round of cards was the end of the day.
Almost! Although the south of norway is still beyond the Arctic circle, the sun hardly sinks. At about midnight there is still a blue shine on the horizion. Off course I had to take pictures.
