Barbies in Pershyttan

In the beginning of this week we took a little trip to a small mining town called Pershyttan. It is just 3 km from where we live. This place has been restored and kept as a working museum of the mining and iron handling in our area, which started in the early 14th century.

It is a beautiful area with possibilities to have a picnic, walk in the forest, enjoy the nature or, if the museum is open, visit it. There is some old train wagons made to a café, so you can enjoy a cup if you did not bring your own. Pershyttan is one of Sweden’s best preserved charcoal-fueled blast furnaces from 1856 and this place has one of the biggest working water wheels.

We stayed for a short while in the upper parts of Pershyttan and I took some photos of my two Barbies, while the rest of the family enjoyed the surroundings. And we kept our distance to the other families enjoying their time.

I hope that you are doing well. 

Bentley met a cat! 'Come on, play with me!'

He turned one year in April and has been with us one year since June. 
I have been deep down in the rabbit hole, like Alice in Wonderland, when it comes to my life. Since my last entry it has been much ado about nothing, really. It has been the normal stuff in life - graduation for my youngest daughter (aesthetics/theater) in the middle of the covid-19 and all that it can bring, planning for a summer at home instead of the cottage, walking Bentley, starting my summer class, searching for literature, getting sweaty during the heat wave and now freezing when the degrees drop down to half of the heat wave’s….
