Oslo Day 2

Today’s Adventures took us to the Viking Ship Museum, the Vigenlans Sculpture Park and downtown for a bit of shopping in the Norwegian department store Steen and Strom.

One thing I’ve forgotten to mention are the lilacs which are in bloom along the highway and in the gardens. There are also rhododendrons in bloom.

The afternoon snack today was a waffle smothered in jam which has also turned into the breakfast hit with our young traveler.

Something else to note was the great little playground next to the sculpture park where our monkey got to stretch his limbs at bit.

We dined at Solsiden Restaurant which is open for only 4 months of the year. The Restaurant is situated dockside, just beneath the Akershus Fortress. Definitely dinner with a view – as long as there is no cruise ship in dock. Eat like a local there and order the play de mer. The seafood was fresh an assortment of crab (2 kinds), scallop sashimi style, lobster, shrimp and crayfish. I will have fond memories of peeling shrimp for days to come.
