Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned.
This small island is called Grinda, it has some rental cabins, a camping ground, two places to eat and one little shop/coffee place for boat tourists to stock up on frozen food and shampoo I guess. We went to a place called Backfickan, just on the water. I had a delicious hamburger, and then a coffee to go – because now it was time to explore…
Well, not explore really. Just walk around, snap photos, admire the swan family’s super cute kids , and to take a look at the beautiful fauna…
Love wild flowers! Though of course, what one really wants on an island, is to be close to the water.
Because it is not a big island, and we didn’t feel like hiking much, we soon found ourselves back at the waterfront. There we found a spot in the sunshine and sat down to do some art journaling.
I enjoyed the silence, but also the sound of the sea gulls and the waves against the rocks, while sipping my coffee…
I did a bit of doodling in my summer time spiral bound art journal. I’ll show you more soon.
After a couple of hours (while drinking lots of water and having another ice cream) the ferry picked us up and did the reverse tour back to Stockholm.
I have high hopes for more days like this one in my future. High hopes, and a big longing already. I hope you enjoyed following along to the Stockholm archipelago?
What a beautiful country you live in. I would want to spend at least a week on that island. Are you following Mary Ann Moss and her Sweden travels?
between the two of you I am really enjoying my “visit to Sweden”
Thanks Angie, every country has its own charm I think, but it’s quite easy to become a bit nationalistic here in summer – everything is beautiful, from park and gardens to nature all around. And yes, I read miss Moss’ blog, love it! Thanks for your visit to my blog!
You find the most wonderful quotations! I really love that Peter Marshall quote. Beautiful photos of a beautiful summer day.
