Inchie and photos

Hi All. Monday again already and I hardly recall last week it flew by so quickly. Welcome to my nearest followers, Olesya and Jo and thank you everyone who calls in at Jumbled Crafts.

Time for another inchie and this time the theme at Every Inchie Monday is fjord

We stayed at the Leikanger Hotel in Norway at one end of the Leikanger Fjord  and one day we went all the way up the fjord to the other end on a boat, it was amazing. We have a video that Vic took along the way and I am looking forward to seeing it again being reminded about it by doing this challenge.

Today I went early for blood tests then we came back home along the beach which has lots of happy holiday makers and residents enjoying the beach huts and the miles of sandy, clean beach that we have here. The beach is cleaned every day early in the morning with a large tractor that has a magic machine attached to it.

The tide was well out when we walked along but speeds in quite close to the promenade wall later.





I did a bit of beach combing and found this mussel shell with barnacles that look like a skull couple close together and also some baby seagull feathers, The adults bring their young down to near the harbour every morning and a few of the adults stay with them until later in the day. They make a lot of noise but seem very happy.

Hope your day is going well.

Love Chrissie xx

Lovely inchie and photos, love the skull shell! Glad you had a nice walk. I had my long lost and recently found cousins here today, was a super day, and now I need an afternoon sleep, they just went back to Holland. Have a fun day, hugs, Valerie

A lovely inchie that brings back memories of travelling on the Oslo to Bergen railway and seeing the fjords.

Love your inchie and the story behind it. I also enjoyed seeing photos of the beach. How lucky you are to be so close to the ocean. I envy you for that!

Great inchie and lovely photos. The weather here in the Highlands has been fabulous. I have to admit to doing some beach combing.

Love your landscape and thanks for sharing the beach photos from across the Pond. I used to live much nearer to the (Atlantic) ocean and miss that. c
