Message in a Bottle



Every now and then bottles with letters and notes float ashore and they're always a great joy to find! This one didn't contain any handwritten letter but a receipt in a foreign language that I don't speak. After a little help from google translation and some detective work on the internet the receipt turned out to be from a restaurant in the Czech Republic. How it traveled all the way from a zoo North East in this landlocked country
in the middle of Europe and ended up on a beach by a Norwegian fjord is a mystery. I suspect that at least the paper has traveled up North in someone's pocket first :) Like the neck cover of the bottle says: 
In vino veritas - In the wine there is the truth.

Sea Pottery


The Fiddler

This piece originates from a large cup that dates back from 1870 to 1880 with an image of a wedding ceremony from Sunnmøre in Norway on it. Although the fiddler appears to have only a few strings left on his fiddle (squeek!) at least he's got six fingers on his right hand to make up for it! :) Most likely he is playing the Hardanger Fiddle (hardingfele) which is actually an 8 stringed fiddle and also Norway's national instrument - Sounding like this:

If you want to see how a whole cup looks like, similar to the one that ended up in the sea ages ago, here is a link with pictures and more information from Digitalt Museum Norge:
