Today was a great day for a vacation. So we took one. Nice workout in the morning, bike ride into town for errands and Mariette’s parents over for “fika” in the afternoon. Fika is coffee and pastries of some kind and it is a Swedish institution. Swedes are the world’s second-biggest coffee drinkers behind only the Finns and fika is probably a huge contributing factor.
Today’s post is mainly shots of our little house and surrounds.
At the right end of the railing is a ramp that can be used to roll wheelchairs down into the sea. The rocks in the distance is what I think is a spontaneous nude sunbathing spot. Scandinavians are pretty relaxed about things like that. There is an official nude beach on the other side of town which we will check out one day but you can bet we will not be posting pictures.
Another shot of the course, same finger in frame. Halmstadians like to boast that this is the golf capital of Sweden but according the a guy I talked to at the large golf academy that opened here a couple weeks ago, there are great courses from here and on down south. This new academy is huge and has heated greens so you can play during winter. It also had a couple acre sized putting green he called “The Himalayas,” which gives you an idea of the undulations running all through it. I will get some shots next time I am out in the area. It is a pretty impressive place.
