I went to a large family get together and spent the night sleeping in a boat house at Tjome Island at my auntie Riri's house (the other beds were taken...how lucky was that!)  Below is the view from the boathouse door at 4.3o pm, Almost midnight, 3 am and at 6 am (when my sister was enjoying her coffee on the 'brygge' (pier).  The light was mesmerizing and I found it impossible to sleep, getting up every hour or so to marvel at the light.
