Lillesand in September

Lillesand is another of the small, white towns on the southern coast of Norway – many will say that it is the essence of them. As with all the other of these small towns, it is partly dominated by tourism, mainly Norwegian. But here we see it as it is out.of-season.

All these towns are dominated by it harbour, and usually lots of pleasure crafts. But at the end of September things are quieting down.

Small, wooden houses are gathered around the harbour, with narrow streets and quiet life.

I think this is the main shopping street in the old part of the town. Are you patient, you might get a halo, too.

You can bring your book to the park and a have good read in peace and quiet.

Of course, a small town must have a park with large decorations.
