Spring is in the air... or is it?

Well here we are in the final week of May and most of the snow has melted away... at least in town. This has of-course been aided in great measure by huge amounts of rain and steadily warmer temperatures. This being said, it does not really feel like spring... not yet anyway. There is still quite a chill in the air and the winds coming from the Barents sea are as frosty as ever... but then again, this is the Arctic after all. Last weekend we celebrated the 17th of May which is the biggest civic holiday in the country. Having celebrated the 17th of May in Oslo and Moss in years past it was fun to see the celebrations in Vadsø, which although smaller in scope where still fun. Anyway, hope you enjoy the photos.
