Vacation - 15th June: Lofoten

It's still raining and windy. We had to leave the house, otherwise it would have depressed us too much, and therefore decided to drive to Svålvær. The driving was a challenge with the wind and rain - gusts of wind coming after every bend and changed direction. We had a short walk through the city, did some shopping - including postcards since - and drove to the Galleri Espolin in Kabelvåg. The gallery shows lithographs and paintings of Kaare Espolin-Johnson, one of Norway's great artists. I especially liked how he draw people and visualized light in his lithographs.

Back in Krystad the wind was even stronger than before and we had to warm the house - and ourselves. The weather forecast for the next days does not promise us sunshine directly either, hope it's wrong.
