Arboretum & Botanical Gardens

We met an American family at the Viking Festival last weekend, and had dinner at their house last night.  They live on the grounds of the University of Bergen's Arboretum and Botanical Gardens.  It's an amazing, beautiful place, and they're a super nice family. 

The Arboretum has the largest Rhododendron collection in Scandinavia.

It also has a fantastic park.
As we walked through the grounds, Harmony (the mom) told me about different edible weeds and their health benefits.  My favorite was sour grass.  That may be what I'm chewing on in this photo (I don't remember).

Hunting for Crabs in the Lagoon (There were tons of them!)

Here we are on the balcony, making organic s'mores (I didn't even know that was possible!).  All of us are in the picture except Harmony, who was behind the camera...

...But here she is sharing a happy moment with Izzy.  Check out the view from her balcony!
