Moltebær plukking / Cloudberry picking

Cloudberry picking

Eirin og jeg la i vei ut i skogen i går ettermiddag på let etter molter. I år er det et godt år for moltebæra pga all varmen vi har hatt i sommer. Så vi håpa på mye bær, men noen hadde væt og plukka før oss... Så det ble knapt 1 liter. Men det er greit for det er bare jeg som spiser molter her i huset likavel ;)

Eirin and I headed out in the forest yesterday afternoon looking for cloudberries. In Norway cloudberries is known as the gold among berries. Everyone have their own secret bog. This year is a good year for cloudberries due to the warm summer we have had. We hoped for lots of cloudberries, but someone have been out picking before us... So we just found about 1 liter. But it's enough since I am the only one that eats cloudberries in this household ;)

Looking for frogs

Ved en liten bekk fant Eirin en bitte liten frosk :)

By a little stream Eirin found a tiny little frog :)

Svømmende elger / Swimming moose

Mooses out swimming

Her om dagen oppdaget vi disse to elgene som kom svømmende over vannet. De hadde god fart og den ene kom nesten opp på land, før han oppdaget at den andre hadde snudd og svømte tilbake der de kom fra. Så da la han også på svøm tilbake over vannet igjen. Moro for ungene å se :)

The other day we discovered these two moose that swam across the water. They had good speed and one was almost up on land, before he discovered that the other had turned and swam back to where they came from. So then he also swim back across the water again. Fun for the kids to see:)
