Pictures from Godøya, June 8 2007

The foot is improving 13% per day. I'm only a few days from being back on track. This beautiful afternoon, the dog was demanding an afternoon walk, and so I went to Godøya. Probably my favorite place in Møre og Romsdal. I followed the seafront path from Gjuv, and stopped after 10 minutes, by the distinct, pointy rock that you pass on this path.

I had been wanting to scramble it for quite a while, but always chickened out. A fall would not be good at all. But today, to get *something* out of an otherwise miserable situation, I decided to climb the damned rock. Half-way up is a ledge. I figured once I got my feet on this ledge, the rest was easy. But the rest turned out to be the hardest part. In any case, I did it, and was very satisfied when I returned to the dog.

We went down to the sea and Troll was howling out of misery while I tried to get a picture of a shy crab. I enjoy myself a great deal on Godøya's shores. It's the only place I could spend a whole day where no vertical meters are involved. I've already done a number of cool things on this island, and yet, there is still so much more to do.

I've added a few pictures, mainly observations of things I see. Some of them I found amusing, especially the seagull..
