Syttende Mai

I could write about how I spent some time today tightening wires, measuring, leveling, and aligning stuff on the boat, and how next time I get a chance (which sadly probably won't be until next week), I'll be tacking the hull together with thickened epoxy.  But, I'm not going to write about that.  On this glorious Norwegian Constitution Day, I'm going to eat one more piece of lefse, and leave you with this line from the Norwegian National Anthem:

Ja, vi elsker dette landet,
som det stiger frem,
furet, værbitt over vannet..


Yes, we love this country
as it rises forth,
rugged, weathered, above the sea...

Is it any wonder that I love hiking in the mountains and sailing the seas?
