Day 12 - Oslo

Pretty downtown Oslo... Vigeland Sculpture Park........
Oslo boasts lots of museums......

Hi as we leave Oslo...

First of all, I want to say THANKS to Jeff and Bjarne for being super hosts in CPE yesterday! Jeff picked us up from the ship in their VW Lupo, then we headed N to pick up Bjarne from the school where he teaches and promptly headed to Vejby (no, they do NOT pronounce it ‘veg be,’ but that is how it looks to us!) where we inspected a few changes they’ve made to the summer house, took several photos (check out the ivlog2 blog) and then traveled to Gilleleje for a nice seafood lunch by water (there is a pattern here folks!). Our travels then continued south along the coast to view Kronborg Castle, Shakespear’s setting for "Hamlet," in Helsingor and a stop at a lovely beach. This is apparently the same route that Brian took on his bike from the summer house back to CPH last summer. Whew, that was a lot of peddling!

Today, we got on an Oslo Vision hop on/hop off bus that took us on a tour of the city for a good overview. After lunch, we got back on the bus and got off at Vigeland Sculpture Park where we saw all the beautiful sculptures before hopping back on the bus for a stop at the Norsk Sjofartmuseum, which is the Norwejian Maritime Museum.

We enjoyed a walk from City Hall back to the ship...and plan to upload today’s pics at the workshop tonight. Check them out if you want to at http://www.ivylog2.spaces.live.com/ later on tonight...or whenever! The photo albums will be continually changing as we learn and do more in class. And Dick’s photos can be reached using the same address, only use a "1" in place of the "2". Simple.

Miss Bee, I am happy to hear of the wedding on the 23rd! I’ll definitely lift a toast to Lala and Aero on that date!!! Sure hope he is feeling better. Life is GOOD!
