:: The Vikings of Bjornstad ::
Henrik Ibsen Park Picnic
Woodside, California - August 2013
Sons of Norway Henrik Ibsen Lodge Web site
The Sons of Norway put on an annual picnic at the 27-acre Henrik Ibsen Park owned by the San Franciso-based Henrik Ibsen Lodge.  The park is in the Coast Range Redwoods on the San Francisco peninsula.  It's a beautiful setting for a picnic - and Vikings.  The Vikings of Bjornstad got the opportunity to join them in August, 2013.  A few photos (primarily of the park) follow.

Inflatable fun.
   

Nothing is more Viking than a rune stone.

There's no shortage of tall timber.
