A small view out to the sea. That the beach was unsnowed would prove advantageous for sauna purposes.

Bugøynes is mostly built on an isthmus between the mainland and a large rocky outcropping, though it extends out a ways on both sides. This is from the outcropping side (where our house was) toward the mainland, showing the riprapped east edge of the isthmus.
