The more I cycle or drive along the Norwegian coastline, the more hidden gems I discover day by day. The weather has been quite “skiftene”, that is, unpredictable recently and we have had a lot of rain in the first part of September. But yesterday it was only windy and cloudy, which called for a drive along the coastline late in the afternoon. I like powerful weather. The colours of the sky in a weather like this are so beautiful and contours are much sharper. So I had to go out and take some pictures again.
Justøya is south of Lillesand and is one of the hundreds of lovely islands that form the colourful southern Norwegian archipelago, called Skjærgården. A very narrow bridge connects the island with the mainland and after crossing it, the winding road will lead you to the far end of the island, where the small harbour of Brekkestø awaits its guests. I’ve been to the harbour too and took lots of pictures, but I will show them in the next article. This time let’s see what is there at the inlet.
