There's this thing in Sweden called Midsummer which is about celebrating the summer solstice and the entrance of summer into the annual calender basically. And Swedes eat and dance around a pole like frogs (in a non-sketchy way I PROMISE), which, admittedly sounds incredibly strange. The beginning of summer in Sweden is also the time when the Weather decides to take a weekend off and offers temperatures around 10 degrees celcius. But in spite of that we manage to come together, friends and family, and it is the one time you might see me actually swim in the sea, despite the 15 degrees.
My little bro.
Karin and Gillian.
Ludwig is really resembling James Dean here.
Bill with ethnic hat.
A lot of hats were worn. Here by Mattias.
Anne-Li looking lovely.
One too many schnaps perhaps? Or did I just happen to catch them at an off moment.....
.....Seeing as Daniel and Peter do have the ability to look perfectly normal.
Gillian walking up from the water.
The chocolate dessert made by Anne-Li and Peter.
Filip and Daniel footballing.
And even more footballing.
I took a walk through the dangerously high grass to reach this little site.
Found a boat and still water.
The reflection of the sky in the water.
The bay stretching out into the sea.
I thought that this was just too cute. And also innovative! When you need to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night that is.
Couldn't resist a picture of the sky turning pink. Although that telephone line really ruins it all.
So that was my midsummer, it was incredibly cold (9 degrees) but the company made it worthwhile.
