Krokkleiva – ‘Dronningens Utsikt’

Samtidig med vårt besøk på Sundvollen besøkte vi ‘Dronningens utsikt’, og vi kan bare igjen beklage at den varslede solen aldri viste seg slik den burde🙂 Men til tross for en manglede sol og dertil disig horisont, så håper vi at dere alle får et best mulig inntrykk av utsikten her oppe fra Krokkleiva?
Bilde 700bAt the time of our visit to  Sundvollen we visited the Queen’s View‘, and we can only yet again regret that the forecasted sun never appeared the way it should have :-)
But despite the lack of direct sun and furthermore a hazy horizonwe hope that  you all will get the best possible impression of the view from up here at Krokkleiva?

Bilde 702bI forrige reportasje (Sundvollen) nevnte vi ‘Vik‘ som det administrative senter i Hole kommune, og her oppefra kan vi se Vik inne i disen øverst i bildet og litt til høyre for midten.

In the previous report (Sundvollen) we mentioned Vikas the administrative center in Hole municipality, and  from where we stand we may seeVik’  at the top of the picture  – in the haze – and slightly to the right of center.
Bilde 703bHer oppefra får vi ogsså et innblikk i det tidligere omtalte Sundvolden Hotel’s beliggenhet i landskapet. Man har da teleoptikk!🙂

From up here we’re also getting a birds view of the previously mentioned ‘Sundvolden Hotel’ and the way it’s located in Sundvollen. We do possess a zoom lense🙂
Bilde 711bHer oppe på toppen finner vi også ‘Kleivstua‘ med en rekke utleiemuligheter, overnatting- og serveringskapasitet. Samtidig er dette et utmerket utgangspunkt for dem som elsker turer i naturen, for her ligger Krokskogen like utenfor døra . . .
Jeg burde kanskje ha vist dere noen bilder fra Krokskogen når jeg først var her, men været var dessverre ikke helt optimalt for denslags. Egentlig burde man bo her et par dager og dermed kunne benytte solrike perioder til akkurat denslags, men det får bli neste gang sjansen byr seg –

Up here on the top we find Kleivstuawith a number of rental opportunities, accommodation- and serving capacity. At the same time this is an excellent starting point for those who love nature walks, for here  ‘Krokskogen’ is just outside the door. . .
Perhaps I should have shown you some pictures from Krokskogen since I was here, but the weather  unfortunately was not quite agreeable for thisI really ought to stay here a few days’  thus be able to utilize sunny periods to nature photography, but there‘ll come a ‘next time’, I hope 
Bilde 708bHer er en av hyttene man kan leie og flere ligger like bak –
Here is one of the cabins across the lawn andf several more just behind it!
Bilde 713b Vi har  ruslet inn i restauranten på Kleivstua. Til høyre har vi en fantastisk utsikt, men fordi det var relativt mørkt inne og veeeldig lyst ute, så ble ikke fotografering mot vinduet prioritert!🙂

We walked into the restaurant at Kleivstua. To the right we have a great view, but because it was fairly dark inside and veeery  much lighter outsideshooting towards the window wasn’t a priority:-)

Bilde 716bVi gjør likevel et forsøk – mot bedre vitende!
Against our better judgement we’re still making a try! (No good)
Bilde 714bEn usedvanlig hyggelig ledelse foretok en rask liten omvisning i den gamle avdelingen:
Gammelt og nytt -side ved side!

An exceptionally nice management enabled a quick little tour of the old section:
Old and new – side by side!
Bilde 717bKleivstua har også en ‘gammel avdeling’ og her slår bonderomatikken imot oss

Kleivstua also has an old sectionand here the romantics of the old days meet our eyes.
Bilde 718bTenk dere denne scenen med kaffe avec og fyr på peisen?
Imagine this scene with a coffe avec and a few burning logs in the fireplace?
Bilde 720bFor dem som ønsker seg en rolig stund med en god bok . . .
For those wishing for a quiet hour and some good litterature . . .
Bilde 725bpgDisse siste bildene er tatt fra stedet som heter ‘Dronningens utsikt‘!
Er det en ‘Kongens utsikt‘? Selvsagt, men da må man ut i terrenget og vi hadde rett og slett ikke tid nok idag!

These last pictures have been taken from the place called ‘The Queens View’
Is there a ‘Kings View’? Yes, of course, but then we have to enter the terrain and as our time was limited, may be next time!
Bilde 729bTenk dere en stille vinternatt med stjernehimmel og alle lysene langt der nede. Hvilket motiv!  Og kanskje griper jeg en gang anledningen . . .

Imagine a quiet winter night with starry sky and all the lights far below. What motive! And may be I’ll once seize such opportunity. . .

      Thank you so much, Sue, but I’ll try to get you something better once the conditions are a bit better. Anyway, it’s only a 45 minutes drive from where I live! What I’d like is to buy a very special camera built for night photography, but then I’ll also be needing a far better tripode compared to what I have. Then there is the money . . . 🙂
      But come winter and snow may be I’ll just do it anyway ? Very nice to hear from you again and the end of my treatment draws closer. (Last injection (as far as I remember) will be February 5th ! ) And I’ll be 78 and dangerous!🙂

      • Great to hear that Very GOOD news my friend.. and I hope to be more in touch now we are back on top with the garden, and I have more time..🙂 Snow!.. Please, not just yet.. :-)…. Good to catch you🙂 Be Good LOL.. and may I say, you look brilliant for 78…🙂 Enjoy your weekend.. And a good night to you🙂 Sue xxx

          Aw, yes I ought to be!😉 I think my avatar must be 5 years old by now, but then thats how it is for most of us I think.
          And I have completely forgotten how I may renew it. (Just as well!) And I do bark more viciously than I bite! (Like most my age)

          • Yes mine is two years old now.. I must renew mine soon also .. Still looking great though I bet..🙂 Take care..

            • Seenorway says:

              Oh yes, Sue, I’m just about to get my ‘beauty sleep’🙂 but then I’ll sleep as long as I want to in the mornings!
              And I still have a number of pictures to work. The forecast predict warm weather untill Xmas, but I don’t really know whether I may trust them?
              With a spring like this year I’ll end up with a 2 month winter, but that has never ever happened before (and I have been living for a few years)
              But – I bid you good night dear friend. We’ll talk tomorrow!

    Ja, da har du noe å se frem til! En ny tur til Kleivstua i strålende flott vær samt litt spasering i turrutene rundt! Ja så må du selvsagt opp igjen til vinteren og oppleve utsikten en strålende lys vinternatt!
