In May 2003 Gunvor and I visited the United States and Canada. The tour went first to Minnesota and Wisconsin, then to Washington state and Vancouver Island, BC (Canada). We had a very nice vacation visiting family and experiencing these "partly Norwegian" parts of the North American Continent.
Here is a selection of pictures of family members, relatives and friends that we met. We have included pictures received from Jean Brookins.
