Last Saturday was a glorious sunny day. The thermometer on our patio read 12˚ under direct sunlight (it was probably about 2˚ in the shade).  Cameron and I decided to take a little walk down to the lake. Normally we’ll take a little jaunt around the boardwalk, but this time we decided to join the hundreds of Swedes out on the ice.

Let me stop here to remind you that I grew up in Vancouver and the deepest frozen water I’ve been on was probably a flooded farmer’s field.  So, even though I knew that if all those Swedes pushing their babies on the ice weren’t worried I shouldn’t be either, I did have a little fear tingling in my toes. Especially when I started hearing these super deep sort of poping sounds, and realised it wasn’t someone’s boom box down the lake, but the ice  shifting. (here’s an example of what we heard ). Once I got over my nerves it was pretty exhilarating. We walked out to a little island off the shore and back.

On our way we saw Swedes engaging in the following activities: ice fishing, dog walking, hockey playing, barbecuing, skating, skiing, skiing with a sail of sorts, and also just chilling.

All in all, a pretty great day, and the sun was so warm I think I got a sun tan.

We visited Kaknästoret over the weekend. Saw a beautiful view of Stockholm on a sunny day and enjoyed a little fika. (to see more detail, click on the images to enlarge them).

Cameron and I took a little boat trip out to the archipelago this weekend. It was cold.
