Evenings In Arvid's Hometown... And Some...

A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery while on a detour...

Very different from our view back home in Fort Lauderdale, but different is always good.

The streets are quiet and just about everyone is already safely tucked away.
Bu don't be fooled this is no ghost town.  The young ones come out around 11pm
 and the party begins.  By then Arvid and I are ready to go to bed. Most nights.

Arvid and I when in Norway stay in his hometown of Horten and we are centrally
located to everything.  Restaurants, pubs, his mom, brother, Michelle and most 
friends are in the town of Horten.  Victoria and Michael live in 
another town some 45 minutes away called Larvik.

Evening in Arvid's hometown of Horten can be quite enchanting.
Different scenery makes for a pleasant change.  For now wishing you all a good day.

Our time in Norway had come to an end for this year.  We have enjoyed seeing everyone,
 but a big part of my heart is back home with Brutus.  Goodbyes are bittersweet, but
 also the anticipation of going home is very appealing.  We have had a very good
time with friends and family, even when the weather was not always the best.

Thank you all for making this another remarkably and memorable summer. The
 memories as always will last a lifetime and we look forward to more good times again.

Yesterday we all had another very good time at Victoria's and Michael's.
We had a BBQ, perfect weather, great food, but best of all we were all together.

Our last evening as always was spent at Michelle's and Emil's.  As always we have had
a great time.  Good food, laughs and fun.  Also, as always very emotional at the end.
A little sad as always, but also very happy to be going home at last.  Thank you all!

As someone said, make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your 
appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return.
 Truly appreciate those around you, and you'll soon find many others around you. 
Truly appreciate life, and you'll find that you have more of it.

It isn't always a change of scenery needed to make life better. 
Sometimes it simply requires opening your eyes...
