My dad is like those migrant birds: he leaves the country some time before Christmas and doesn't show up until about easter again. I can understand why: the western part of Norway, where he lives, is wet and cold during winter (no snow really, and if they get snow, the authorities doesn't know how to handle it), and Las Palmas, Canary Islands, is a much better place to spend those awful 4-5 months.
The Canary Islands is a five-and-a-half hour plane flight from Norway, so obviously we don't see him much during winter. But this winter we did, as we spent a whole week on the islands!
The photos of him might not be of best quality, but I don't really care, I scrap them anyway. I rather want to help the kids to remember that grandpa actually lived on those islands, and that he still could raise a glass in a beach restaurant at the age of 75, than not doing it because the photos was a little orange...
The idea to this layout came when I saw the sketch challenge #21 at MME and the theme: Celebrate Today. My dad all reasons to celebrate that spesific Sunday, finally having his daughter and grand children visiting him.
Thank you for stopping by to see my dad and my work :-)
