Hi all and happy Saturday!
Today we´re having a BIG family party at mum´s house with the whole family and I am so happy that my older sister and her daughters have come down from Stockholm to join us! I am sure it will be a great evening;=)
Yesterday it was a lovely Friday with warm winds and perfect weather and again, not like autumn at all. So I took Mio in the pram and walked and walked for hours. We were in the forest, by the sea and in the city. So a great day and even greater since I had the opportunity to take amazingly beautiful photos;=)
Here you go - Friday´s photo session:
Walked up to our Medieval tower called KÄRNAN cause it was just a perfect sky for taking nice photos of it for you. Here you can read more about KÄRNAN and if you´re visiting you should enter it and walk all the stairs up to the tower to get an amazing view!
KÄRNAN is situated high up in the city and you can look down over the city centre and over to Helsingör, Denmark and here´s a view photo for you. Denmark is far behind the city hall which is the building with the Peter Pan tower;=) Boats go to Denmark every 20th minute so it´s easy if you´d like to work in Denmark for instance. To Copenhagen you take the train after the boat and it takes us 1 hour to get there. Easy and fast!
Here´s a close up over the City hall and tower:
KÄRNAN is also surrounded by a lovely park and there you can feed the ducks and listen to concerts in the summer time;=)
Found some lovely trees in the park and this one is lovely in its colors:
A close up and it´s so nice with the yellow and brown leaves mixed with the red berries:
Then we walked some kilometers to enter our forest which is called PÅLSJÖ SKOG. This forest is not the biggest but has good trails for running 2,5; 5 or 10 k´s for instance and you can walk or ride a bike from the city towards the castle SOFIERO.
Some cool mushrooms are growing there and I love the colors of these!
Lovely sceneries high up looking down from the forest towards the sea shore:
There are benches so you can sit and look at the lovely views throughout this side of the forest that head towards the ocean;
As well as lovely sights inside the forest. Lots of leaves on the ground makes it look like a fairytale forest now:
Small waters are floating here and there:
And this lovely avenue leads up to the "pink castle" in the middle of the forest. I felt like a princess so had to take a photo:=)
Up in the forest there´s the Crematory where also a big memorial and cemetary is situated and there´s this lovely pond with lots of ducks and other birds in it. A truly lovely place to rest after this life
Mio, just like me, loves to be in the forest and laughs all the time when the leaves are moving, birds are singing and he can feel the warmth of the sun slipping through the tree tops. For me, being in the forest has been so calming ever since I was a child and mum always took us to the forest in the weekends and we had our dog and cat with us;=) Fun memories!
One of the best things with my city HELSINGBORG is the contrast. That you can walk from the city centre to a big forest, then down to the sea and back to the city centre. You get it all in just some kilometers of walking or bicycling,=) So after the forest we walked down to the ocean where we had a diaper break in the public toilet (another great thing with my city) and some fruit for Mio by the sea;=)
After the sea we walked by the small boat harbour:
And then I had a nice hamburger for lunch in the companionship of these small little birds who got some bread from me;=)
And then home to our back yard where this lovely pumpkin greeted us! Halloween soon;=)
NOW ENJOY THIS LOVELY WEEKEND AND HAVE FUN!
