The weekend was sunny and there was no rain predicted (not that THAT means much). W thought of going to the Dog Forest, where we could hike around, and snoopy could be off-leash, but decided to explore new territory instead.
Just south of Sandnes, there is a small lake called Brastein. Vatnet means “the lake”. Snoopy was so excited to be going for a car ride, as he hasn’t been for quite a while, what with David working the whole weekend on his Statistics course.
The sky was so blue – and so was the water. We walked along the path beside the lake for a while, and then it led us up to a pasture. There were old buildings there – not sure if they had been stables, but they looked to be used for storage now.
We walked to the top of a small knoll and looked down over the lake to this island. There were four swans swimming beside it – in the brilliant reflection of the sun, they were just shadows and very hard to see.
