Suvi on a trip
|I am ready, let's go! Made a simple dress the evening before and|
the shawl I crocheted in the car, on our way. It is twisted and can be used
in two different ways.
|Hellou from the south Öland. Some old houses in the background.|
On a sunny day, we - the whole family, took a road trip to the city Kalmar and the island of Öland. I took Suvi along and thought that it would be fun. And it was.
Kalmar is a city in the southeast of Sweden, by the Baltic Sea and was one of the most important cities between 13th and 17th century. It was a fortified city, with the Kalmar Castle as the center. In the year 1658 the importance diminished, until the industry sector made a difference in the 19th century. From Kalmar you can drive over the Öland Bridge to the island of Öland. We did that.
Kalmar and the island of Öland are pretty beautiful and very flat. Perfect for them who love to bicycle! We drove our car and could enjoy a lot that way. On the island the cattle walk and live freely. No fences at all, so you had to look up!
|Suvi in a rose garden. It was a bit windy and late evening, that is why the focus is a bit off.|
|Suvi by the Baltic Sea, in Mörbylånga. I picked some pebbles there.|
|Suvi and some pebbles|
|Suvi relaxing in Mörbylånga.|
|In Mörbylånga. She is doing her best to not say anything about the smelly alga.|
|Windmill, a typical sight on the island of Öland.|
Around the Kalmar castle you can walk, have a picnic or just enjoy your free time. Inside the castle you can experience how it was in the medieval time. I visited the little renaissance garden they have. Such beautiful flowers and plants. We drove even to the tiny city Mörbylånga on the island of Öland.
|Flat as can be. A memorial place on the island of Öland.|
It was a lovely day and it was nice to have a day with the family. On that day I got a note that my package, sent by Lise at Daggry Saga, had arrived. I picked it up the following day and found this cutie, that I bought, inside. More about her later on....
|Meow. More about her in the coming post...|
