Hamar - part 3

Here are some pictures from our trip around Helgøya (øy=island øya=the island) - it was the longest trip we took with the boat, about 5hours all in all.

Here's the mainland on the right and Helgøya on the left, and so we (of course) went in the middle! This church looked so pretty down by the water.
Can you see the viking ship? I'd like one, too! (click to biggify a bit!)
Mom like to sit up front on the boat - and sometimes I get to sit there with her!
..I can crawl up in her lap...
...and go to sleep!

This is the real reason mom like to be up front.. She likes to stick her feet in the water and make the water go all splishy-splashy all over the place! You up there, mommy? When we got back mom wanted to make me swim so she could take pictures of me swimming. She jumped into the water and got her camera ready.

Only one problem... I tried to get back to PA, cause I couldn't see land since he put me out from the wrong side of the boat... Then I sank like a rock (since my butt went down as I wanted to try to climb..) no swimming photos as mom had to come to the rescue.. Sigh..

Maybe we'll prove I can swim (when I don't think about climbing) next summer...


(slightly embarrased)

My Mummy likes to sit on the front of the boat for the same reason. What a great view.

Swimming is very hard! I do not know how to swim, myself.

Those are great pics! Sorry you can't swim, I don't even know if I can swim I've never been swimming.

Hi Bajas!
5 hours!?! Wow that's a long time! But I'm sure with the great view and all it wasn't that bad!
Don't be embarrassed about not swimming, we're not too good at it too... not that we've ever tried to, but we never will.. BOL!
Wags and licks,

Hi, Bajas!
5 hours in the boat?? OMD! My mom says that is a long time! But sure you enjoyed every minute of it!
Well, until came the thing of swimming, right? Glad your Mom was there to rescue you!
Kisses and hugs

Don't be embarrassed, Baja. I don't like swimming either.
Beautiful boat ride. What a beautiful area. You all must have had a lot of fun. *except for the sinking part)

Wow, five hours on the boat...I hope you didn't get sea sick. It looks like you had lots of fun! Maybe next time we'll see your swimming photos...in chlorine water maybe?

I would TOTALLY freak out in the water, you are very brave!
