Sunday afternoon in Stavanger region sun is shining and the wind is strong.
Stavanger municipality is located on a peninsula on the southwest coast of Norway. The climate seems to be greatly influenced by the Gulf Stream which creates warmer temperatures throughout the year compared to other cities at similar latitudes.
This sunny and windy day finds us in Sola Strand.
Sola strand means sunny beach. It is a 2,3 km long beach close to the airport of Stavanger and it is one of the most popular beaches in the Stavanger region. It is a well used spot for wind- and water-sports and summer holidays.
The place is stunning, white sand, clear blue waters and a sky that reminded me that heaven is a place on earth.
The temperature could prepare us for early September swims, wind though has always the last word in this place.
With a strong wind of 6m/s the only people that really enjoyed the waters today were the kite surfers.
We took off our shoes and walked on the sand. Our footprints were soon covered by the wind & the wind messed up our hair. We watched the light dance upon the water and soon left this paradise for our next destination.
Walking down the beach reminded me of a poem of D Awanis I read last night

As for her,
She might has forgotten
where the home is in the world
For she’s always everywhere—
in every countries she crossed
on every streets she wandered
at every motels she spent the night
above the sand and ocean breeze
below the tallest buildings and crowded bridges..
You make her feel like
the closest thing to feeling that again
