Lifecruiser view over Oslofjord
Wordless Wednesday

Oslofjorden is a very beautiful bay in the south east of Norway, which we saw in our Norway trip, both on the way to visit Kari and then after that TorAa and Anna.

They have this gorgeous view every day from their summer house. Lucky them!

According to Wikipedia:

“A fjord is a long, narrow inlet with steep sides, created in a valley carved by glacial activity.

In spite of its name, the Oslofjord is not, geologically speaking, a fjord. In historical times, it was known by the current name of the region, Viken (the bay); it is unclear when (and for what reason) the body of water acquired its current name.”

It’s about 100 km long, stretching from the Skagerrak in the south, to the capital city Oslo in the north and is one of the most densely populated areas of Norway.

There are many activities (sightseeing, fishing, diving and guided tours to different attractions) in Oslofjorden, which you can find at Visit Oslo’s website if you’re going there :-) .

    What can we we say:
    we are really grateful and humbled and even “blessed” -if one can use that expression btw us, by this wonderful post and the others as well from our last face to face meeting. Let it not be the last;))
    The view from around our Summerhouse, well you have seen it, and according to the comments allready giving: It’s special.
    Gives us harmony. relaxe for our two nice cats and ourselfs, and for the most of our our guests as well.
    You are hereby welcome to do a revisit – whenever – during Summertime – so are also your dear blogger friends.
    (PS. It’s something to be fixed – you know LOL – but that will be in proper shape next season).

    Some facts: Wikipedia is not correct when defining a fjord. It’s allmost correct, but the main point is: It had to be carved out by the ice during the last ice age – but that does not mean it also have to be high mountains around. Here in Southern Norway the Mountains were crushed into Sand. The result is Denmark and Northern Germany, maybe also Holland. That’s why the Oslofjord and other fjords in Southern Norway do not have steep and high Mountains like on the Norwegian Western Coast.
    The Main Stream of Ice in regular went Southwards, with heavy pressure, while some sidestreams went West and created the World Famous Fjords in SW Norway.
