I finally did it! I put the dog in the car and we went to begin our exploration of the district of Østfold with the town of Moss.
I parked at Moss Church and started walking along the pedestrian road that starts alongside the church. It turned out that there was a city festival going on so there were a lot of booths selling waffles and hot dogs.
Moss is beautiful with flowers now in June. Lilacs and rhododendrons and colorful flowerbeds surrounding majestic chestnut trees. I climbed the steep streets to the highest point in Moss.
Descending from Canon hill I next came to King Christian Fredriks square (I believe this was a Danish king from the time of the union with Denmark). The Dam in the background is decorated with sculptures of the working man and woman.
From Christian Fredriks square I followed cobbled streets along the Moss river, flanked by restored brick industrial buildings. Walking along Strandgate at the bottom was boring. Asphalt, traffic, modern cement buildings, along the docks. Every now and then a glimpse of the water, until I finally reached the bridge over the small boat harbor which is really a sort of canal linking one part of the fjord with the ferry port. Lucy and I sat in the park while I read and ate my sandwiches before walking back to the church parking lot. I came upon the Moose statue, just as I was approaching the end of my walk.
