Living close to the ocean in northern Norway

View large.

Here you can see a typical village in northern Norway placed very close to the sea.
From old times the living house was painted white and barn (and boathouse) in red. This was because red paint was cheap and white was more exclusive.

  1. When you are showing picutures like this we can have a good idea about the life in Norway,mainly all long the coast…Sometimes it’s very difficult hear some news about your country and you pictures talk with us telling about the ordinary life in your beautififul land…
