The Beer of Sneaky Triumph. When I was out buying beer last week, I got three beers: a can of Norwegian beer I know I like, and two different foreign beers yet unknown to me. I only put two in the fridge, so that bastard piece of shit didn't steal all my beer.
And the Beer of Sneaky Triumph tastes good. ^_^
well then, photos.
I hate it, but the summer is just about over.
I chose the path of shadows over the sunny road.
The triumph of life over death. I'm constantly amazed by the trees' strong will to live.
A shallow river. It was nice and cool and tasted pretty good.
Fungus on a dead tree trunk.
I took a break, sat beside this bridge and read a chapter of my current book. It was nice and peaceful, with few people passing by.
No clue what this is. Looks like a cross between fungus and lichen.
The journey continues.
The sunny stretch. Too hot, and I noticed I was short of breath every time I stopped. I'm getting out of shape after all these days confined to my room.
But at least the brook was there like a faithful companion, to slake my thirst should the sun get unbearable.
"Small Tortoiseshell" / Neslesommerfugl (Nymphalis urticae) (ha, that book on butterflies and moths is coming in handy)
Rød Fluesopp / Fly Agaric (Amanita muscaria). Poisonous but pretty.
Yes, we have road signs in the middle of the forest.
More mushrooms, though I don't know the identity of these. Too small to be food anyway.
Just another forest path.
Weird fungus on a tree. Water drops?
Blueberries helped take some of the edge off my hunger. I should've packed a lunch, or had a more solid breakfast. Oh well, I survived.
I call this place "The Sun Wall".. the view is pretty good there.
The Oslo Fjord can be seen in the distance here.
I remember what the zoom function is for.
Can you tell I love all these old wooden bridges?
I eventually made my way out of the woods and back to civilization. A bit reluctantly, but I was really getting hungry.
Home to a cat waiting for me in bed.
She was meowing when I came in, and I was worried she had gotten hurt again, because I really couldn't afford any more vet visits now.. but it turned out she just had missed me a lot, as she turned over on her back and offered to let me caress her belly.
Then I made some food and had my well-deserved Beer of Sneaky Triumph. But I really wanted more than the one beer.. I have other alcoholic beverages, but they aren't beer.
