On Friday we are heading to Oslo, Norway for the Summer Solstice. We are hoping to officially start summer in Norway, hopefully there will be more signs of summer there than in Germany. I would like to see and feel the sun and perhaps not have rain, I'm willing to wear a sweater that's my compromise!
I'm excited to see many things but the one place I'm most excited is Vigeland Sculpture Park. The park covers 80 acres and features 212 bronze and granite sculptures created by Gustav Vigeland. Vigeland personally sculpted every figure out of clay and individual craftsmen were contracted to fabricate the pieces into what they are today. These works of art reside along an 850 meter-long axis divided into six sections: The Main Gate, The Bridge, The Children’s Playground, The Fountain, The Monolith Plateau and the Wheel of Life.
I'm looking forward to a mini vacay, and spend some quality time with the family. Summer is officially starting for the West Family Friday do I hear a woo hoo!!
