Summer Stay-cation

If you should be wondering, I can really recommend a stay-cation.
This summer we've simply chosen to stay home a lot. After almost two months in France this spring, we wanted to reconnect with our "base camp" in Norway, and except for a few trips to visit family and some work-related traveling, we've mostly been home, having a stay-cation. 
It's in fact really nice. Long-lasting, lazy mornings, playing in the backyard, going bicycling, swimming or simply sitting down with a book or watching a a movie.
Not having an agenda, no other than hanging out, either together or  by ourselves. Taking life as it comes, even taking our time to do nothing. Spending time with family and friends.
A fun part of a typical stay-cation is the opportunity to go on smaller outings in the area, seeing places and doing things often left out, simply because it's close to home.
These photographs are from  Sveinhaug farm,  just on the other side of the lake. It was part of a summer program of "open farms" in our area, and we went there with my father-in-law, who was visiting for a week.
