More pictures from Sola Beach

I wanted to share some pictures from our walk to Solastranden on Monday. Rich had to work but it is spring break for the boys. They weren't happy about walking that far, but we had a blast on the beach. Unfortunately, it was very very windy and the sand blowing was amazing. We actually crawled into an old WWII bunker to get out of the wind and clear the sand from our eyes. The picture of the three kids is inside the bunker. It is not the same one pictured from the ouside. There are several on the beach as the Nazis took over this area and were fanatic that the Allies would be coming to get them in Norway.
I have gone red for the sister sent me some haircoloring (it's $30 a box here and they mostly have platinum blonde....imagine that!) and I took the plunge this week. It came out more strawberry blonde than red...which is good for transition I guess. When I saw it wet, I thought it was pink, so I consider myself lucky....strawberry blonde was a step up from that! I hope to get a real haircut for the first time in over 3 years (Rich cuts my hair) when I get to the U.S. I hope to have it long enough to donate it to Locks of Love for wigs for cancer patients. Yes, I am getting a short bob....Rich finds that easier to cut. My hair is too long now, my shoulders seem to get in the way of an even haircut. (that's his story) :o)
