Wilder blustered the tide,
And I sat on the shore, and gazed upon
The white dance of the billows.
~ Heinrich Heine, The North Sea.
Hi! I’m Kirsty.
I’m a marine biologist working in an oil and gas company, with ambitions to make my love of photography a larger part of what I do. I’m also a home-maker, an inappropriate-laugher, an experimental baker, a procrastinator, an organiser and one of life’s fallers (gravity definitely has a stronger grip on some people). I love the sea, photography, warm evenings, cold mornings, tea, and the excitement of writing the first words in a new notebook.
I’ve been drifting north since I was 7 years old… born in Lincolnshire, England; moving to Yorkshire; then to Aberdeen, Scotland for university. I met my Prince Charming – Mike – when I was 20, and we moved together across the North Sea to Stavanger, Norway, earlier this year. We’re getting married in July 2015.
I plan to use Over the Billows to share updates on the life of an expat in Norway, a girl 12 months from getting married, an avid cook and a passionate photographer.
Feel free to stop by and say hello!
