I mean that completely and absolutely! It is late summer and the weather is fading. Fall is approaching. You can feel it in the night and early morning air. Our days of sunning ourselves in the far north are fading fast. That is why today when I saw the lovely sun shine I sent a text message to my best girlfriends and said I wanted to take a trip to the beach after work.
I picked up one of my friends and we all met at the others house around 7:30 PM! I love the Norwegian summers, not many places you can start your beach trip at 7:30 and still have some fun. We took a lovely 40 minute walk to the beach (for exercise) discussing a book the girls have been reading, the various houses and gardens along the way and practically everything else under the sun.
When we got to the shore we were good and warm and ready for a quick dip. The weather as I said is going fast and the water wasn’t more then 17 degrees Celsius (63 F) but I have become used to the cold waters and just love to swim no matter what the temperature.
When we came up from the water we settled ourselves on the shore, changed out of our swimsuits into a nice warm sweatshirt and sat by the sea with coffee in hand. One of my favourite things is to listen to the waves, the birds and the boats while sharing girl talk with my friends. It was a wonderful evening and left me glowing with health and happiness!
