PICTURE SERIES: As summer winds down in Norway, memories linger and the locals start looking forward to next year, not least to visiting fabled Sørlandet. It takes a boat ride to get there, but the historic village of Lyngør, set on a group of islands off Norway’s south coast, is well worth the visit.  UNESCO has honored it as aWorld Heritage site, worth preserving for the future. During summer it’s a playground for Norway’s well-to-do.
