Moss – Jeløy (Syd)

Egentlig hadde jeg ambisjoner om å vise dere byen Moss idag, men – jeg oppdaget fort at Moss har blitt betydelig større med tiden og at byens parkeringsautomater ikke aksepterer norske mynter ( ellers et godkjent betalingsmiddel i Norge) og ingen beskrivelse på bruk av betalingskort!  Da risikerer man ikke kortet i en by langt hjemmefra! Og det ble ingen
reportasje fra selve byen Moss denne gang!
I steden ble det en del bilder fra Jeløy som ligger tvers over Mosse-sundet!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMy ambitions was actually to present youy with pictures from the city of Moss today, but –
I was quick to recognize the the city of Moss has grown substantially since I was last there!
And that the parking meters in Moss do not accept Norwegian coins, eveen if this is an accepted currency throughout Norway. Not so in the parking lots of the city of Moss!
And there were no instructions how to use a bank card on these particular parking meters!
Thus I didn’t want to risk leaving my card within a parking meter in a city pretty far from home!  Unfortunately it’s not gonna be any photo report from Moss as of yet!
Instead I started on the other side of the bridge across the Moss canal:
At the island of Jeloy!
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADet er begrenset størrelse på hva slags båter som kan seile gjennom den smale passasjen på østsiden av Jeløy, men alle former for fritidstbåt-trafikk går fint!

There is limited size to the  kind of boats that may sail through the narrow passage on the eastern side of Jeløy, but all forms of leisure craft traffic is quite OK!
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHer ser vi et bilde sydover gjennom den trangeste delen av denne seilingsruten.
Here a shot southwards through the narrowest part of this passage.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASom dere ser – idyllisk, men litt trangt!
As you can see – idyllic, but a little cramped!
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMen – da er vi altså offisielt på Jeløya.  Det er en vakker og ganske stor øy med mye kultur.
Det finnes også et ganske stort nettverk med turveier gjennom et natur-reservat som vi også skal se nærmere på.

But – then we are officially on Jeløya. It is a beautiful and quite large island with much culture . It has also a fairly large network of footpaths through a naturereserve that we will also investigate further.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPå toppen av en liten høyde finner vi Jeløy kapell med en tilhørende ganske rommelig kirkegård!
On top of a small hill, we find Jeloy chapel with an accompanying quite spacious cemetery!
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAVi følger hovedveien over høyden og inn på Jeløya –
We follow the main road across the hill into the island of Jeloy
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHer inne på Jeløya finner vi en del moderne boligblokker –
Here inside the Jeløya we find a number of  modern apartment buildings –
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHer inne – med vakker hage og utsikt over Oslofjorden ligger et kjent landemerke fra Jeløy: ‘Refsnes Gods‘! Her kan du faktisk bo! Refsnes Gods benyttes sidag som et eksklusivt hotell

Here inside – with beautiful garden and overlooking the Oslo fjord is a famous landmark of Jeloy Refsnes Estate‘!  Here you may even live yourself!  Refsnes Estate is today operated as an exclusive hotel!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAVi befinner oss sydvest på Jeløya. I bakgrunnen lengst til høyre i bildet kan man skimte bebyggelsen i Horten på andre siden av fjorden.

We are located on the southwestern tip of Jeløya. In the background to your far right of the picture you can make out the buildings in the city ofHorten’ across the fjord.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALangs stranden er det opprettet spaserveier for vanlig rekreasjon åpen for alle, men med restriksjoner på slikt som ridning og/eller camping.

Along the shoreline there has been established footwalks through a small reservation area. It’s open to everybody but with special restrictions on horseback riding and/or camping.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATvers over bukta ser vi Melløs, en bydel under byen Moss.
Across the bay we are seeing ‘Melløs’, a section of the city of Moss

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADet er en flott dag hvor vi kan se skjærgården utenfor Tønsberg
It’s a nice sunny day and we are able to see even the archipelago outside the city of Tønsberg
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALøvverket vil snart bli betydelig tettere . . .
Foliage will soon become considerably thicker. . .
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADet er en kontinuerlig fergeforbindelse mellom byene Horten og Moss. Her ser vi et par av fergene møtes midt i Oslofjorden!

It is a continuous  car ferry connection between the citiesHorten’ andMoss’.
Here we see a couple of the ferries meeting in the middle of the Oslo Fjord !

Øyene midt i bildet er ‘Bolærne’; et tidligere kystfort utenfor byen Tønsberg!
The islands in the far horizon is ‘the Bolærne’; a previous coastal fortress controlling the passage up the Oslofjord.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAVi er tilbake i Sjøgata, ikke langt fra brua over til Moss. Her ligger foruten en marina også en liten strand . . .

We are back in Sjøgata, not far from the bridge across to Moss. Here lies besides a marina also a small beach. . .
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAEt veldig flott sted å bo. . .
A very nice place to live . . .

Jeg håper dere har fått et lite inntrykk av  Jeløya ? Og så får vi håpe at jeg ved en senere anledning finner en metode til å parkere bil i Moss centrum. Det var ikke enkelt!

I hope you‘ve got a modest impression of Jeløya? And  we must hope that I at a later opportunity find a way to park a car in Moss centrum. It was not easy !

  1. Vakkert bilder! Lovely to see this area. The hotel looks inviting and I wonder whether the coastal fortress, guarding the Oslofjord, was the location for one the cannons that sunk the German warship, the ‘Blucher’, many years ago?

    • Seenorway says:

      We had several coastal fortresses at the time: Bolærne, Rauer, Kopås and finally
      Oscarsborg. The last one has its own presentation on this blog. (Please use the text widget)
      All these fortresses were in agegement with the german flotilla, but it was the torpedo batteries of Oscarsborg that really did the job and sunk the Blücher.

  2. Beautiful shares my friend.. wishing you a Peaceful week.. Hugs Sue
