  • Idyll at Røvær

  • Røvær

There is good communication to Haugesund with a passenger boat. A new nursery school is being built and there is primary school up to class 10, with 14 […]

Ellen og Tarald var med til Kristiansand, med overnatting i Grimstad. I Kristiansand kom Petter ombord og var los til Torvefjorden i Søgne, der han bur. Andre natta låg me i hamna der. Brikt […]
