The first island you arrive to when driving to Hvaler is Kjøkøy.

I decided to stop there one day this summer of 2018 to visit 'Skams klove' A fascinating gorge -or a little very narrow 'valley' there -called Skams klove. It's actually a little tourist attraction. There are also rests after a fortress from the WW2 just above it, but not worth photographing as there's only stones left..
The gorge is 200 meter long and about 12 m deep -and quite exciting to walk.

After reading in the local newspaper about a not very good looking apartment block in Fredrikstad -I went there to have a look. Quite amazing actually as it does seems partly abandoned and ‘decorated’. Not very well maintained either to put it mildly. Seems to be some sort of problem house for the local council as the owner can’t be bothered with it….. 
Not good for the city but still good for my camera. But I found the contrast between that ugly block and the old beautiful house beside it fascinating. 

A parking house near by was also interesting for my lense!
