The delay of our visit to Flor & Fjære turned our pland a little upside down. We had planned dinner on the flower island on the night of our wedding anniversary, instead we ended up with lunch the next day........which meant that we would be way too late for dinner the next night at the lovely Manor Baroniet Rosendal.
I phoned the Manor to tell them about our changes and asked: "I know we will be too late for dinner, but will it be possible to get some food when we come? Just some bread and cheese or something?" The young girl I spoked with reassured me; "No problem madam. I will make some food for you and leave it in the fridge"
We were tired after a long day on Flor & Fjære, then hours of driving, and came to Rosendal late. What a lovely surprise then to find plates of art, real art, in the fridge. I sat the table for two, plates, glasses, cutlery, napkins, and the art.......which was made to be eaten. Salmon, vegetables, homemade bread, salami and tomatoes. Pure cold Norwegian spring water.
Heaven on earth.
Avlshuset at Baroniet Rosendal belongs to the group of historical hotels I call The Wooden hotels of Norway. Most of these are found along the western coast of the country. Terje and I visit one of them every summer, a link to posts about our other visits can be found on the right board on my blog.
I am learning over and over again that I can not have it all, and it is for me to make what I am given The Best!
Enjoy your visit.
