This is a picture of my home town Ålesund the way it look like from a near by mountain where I often take trips. The picture is not as sharp as iI had hoped it would be, but I like it newertheless.

Is this from the mountain on Skarbøvik? That looks like the view from there toward Ålesund. My father grew up on Skarbøvik. I have been there twice, in 1952 and 1996. I'd love to get back.

I'll have to scan a picture I took in 1996 (using film) from what I think is the same mountain, and post it here.

No, it is about 12 kilometres in the opposite direction on a mountain called Emblemsfjellet, which is located in a suburban called Spjelkavik. But you can see Skarbøvik just to the right of the triangular shaped mountain which you can see in the middle of the picture. (This was a challenge to my limited English, but I hope you understand)

Ah, I see it now. I should have recognized the two small hills on Skarbøvik, just to the right of the triangular mountain. The triangular mountain could be the one I've heard called Sukkertoppen, if it is on the same island as Skarbøvik. The bigger mountain behind is on a different island, I'm sure.

I still have relatives living on Skarbøvik, and I hope to get back there before too much longer. It is a beautiful area.

When I was first there in 1952, the bridge from Ålesund to Skarbøvik had just been built but was not open yet, so there were no cars in Skarbøvik. Very peaceful. There was a small ferry that would take people across any time of day or evening.

I know we were in Spjelkavik -- the name sounds familiar -- but I don't remember any details. I'm sure we didn't climb Emblemsfjellet. Maybe next trip.

Your English is much better than my Norsk (I have practiced saying "Jeg snakker ikke Norsk.")

Best,

Eric
