Jeritilley A picture is worth a thousand words..

Opposite sides of the world

Thought for the day…”  Some people are like clouds.  When they disappear, it is a beautiful day”.

“Life does not get easier, you just get stronger”.

Another photo from up in the Artic Circle, and again from Norway.   Today’s photo comes from the small Norwegian town of Svolvaer in the Lofoten Islands.  These islands are known for their small mountains and islands.  Previously, fishing, especially for cod, was the main industry, but now tourism is becoming increasingly important.   The islands are situated at about 68 degrees north, so experience a long dark winter with up to 24 hours of darkness, as well as the midnight sun during summer.   Surprisingly, despite being within the Artic Circle, there is a type of coral found in the seas around Lofoten, and even a coral reef near the island of Rost.     The photo here was taken in the harbour at Svolvaer, the ‘capital’ of Lofoten.
