Swedish memories - the evening swims






Did you know that Sweden this year became the new Mediterranean? Did you know that this summer Sweden had the warmest and most sunny weather in 20 years? Little did we know before we left, packing jackets and jeans, long sleeves and trainers in case of rain and chilly winds... Little did we know we only would have needed 2 sets of swimwear, flip-flops, shorts, T-shirt and a couple of beach towels...

We remember the evening swims on the dock, we can smell the air and see the mirror calm water in the bay in our minds. The settling sun while papa Jay was fishing. We remember the taste of the brackish (salty and sweet) water on our lips and we can still feel the sensation of freedom when jumping in to the refreshing water to wash off the day off our skin before going to bed at night.

Afterwards we bundle up in towels and sit down to escape into the quietness, only hearing fish jumping in the reed, the spinning noise from the fishing rod being rolled in or another family down the coastline screaming of delight over the bay when doing the same thing as us.

This year was magical. A lot of memories has been made. It is hard to choose what to share. The photos are many. But most of all the memories are in my head, in my heart, and my soul. And I know this summer will be a very special memory to treasure for a lifetime.

Kärlek

  8. Fina bilder! Jag längtar efter Sverige! Kan man längta 'hem' efter ett land som inte är ens hemland? Kram, An (från Belgien)

  11. Vad skönt att ni hade möjlighet att bada och svalka av er varje dag medan ni var här! Själv hade jag aldrig den möjligheten, men jag drömde om det MÅNGA gånger...

  13. Ja sommaren iår var helt underbar. Vi var vid stranden var dag när vi var hemma. Men någon svalka blev det inte av att doppa sig. 28 grader varmt i vattnet i hanöbukten i nordöstra skåne (Åhus) där jag är ifrån. En smärre chock fick vi när vi sedan kom hem till Norge igen och hösten är på väg... regn, kyla... parkdress och regnkläder på barnen... från att ha gått i shorts och t-shirt (som max) ena veckan till ytterkläder, det var verkligen en chock.
