First I want to add a picture of Aina's where we stayed the first night after leaving my friend in Kungsängen Stockholm.

It was a very cozy B&B and very reasonable priced a place I recommend.


This is a sign we saw in Stockhollm that reminds our masters to pick up after us......Dog says I'm doo ...doo .. done,and for some silly reason Mom thought that was hilarious,



At the subway station you can grab a newspaper for free, and it says you should either give it to a friend or put it back..........Swedes are very much into recycling, which of course is a very good thing.................

  After a good night sleep, and a great breakfast at Aina's we continued our drive north following the coastline. It was sunny but quite windy.

This is the Golden Gate bridge of Sweden that Mom got to see for the first time since it was a while since she visited here.......boy was it windy, almost like home where I live before it rains.

    The scenery is gorgeous around what's called "The High coast" Höga kusten, so we stopped very often to enjoy and take pictures, so often that Jan told

Mom "you keep this up we'll never get anywhere"..............so what !! who's in a hurry ?



This giant bear is a coffeeshop Mom remembered well, so of course we had to stop in for a cup of Java. I had to stay in the car but as usual I didn't complain.


Next night we rented a cabin in the woods and I was exploring many new scents.................it was awesome.



Since it's so late in the season,there was nobody in the reception when we got there, but there was an envelope with keys, and a note that said to choose a cabin, sleep well and pay in the morning ...... How about that ?????



We stopped in a city called Örnsköldsvik and there was a market where they sold fresh lingonberries and mushrooms that are called the gold of the forest. There's a skijumping tower where they land almost in centrum of the city.

Mom's is running down memory lane.................whole bunch of stories..........I slept through most.................


We finally arrived in Mom's puppytown and to her classmate from school.

She and her husband lives in a gorgeous house, and we`re sleeping in their trailer. I'm allowed to run around loose,and it's so much to explore.  First thing I did was chasing the neighbor cat that took off in lightning speed and disappeared ? I searched and searched but she was gone ? Than a found a big pile of sawdust to dig in..........that was fun until Mom caught me. I was wet from the grass so the sawdust stuck to my hair and made a great mess...........so I guess you can all figure out what happened next............

  This house is absolutley gorgeous, should be in a decorators magazine.



    they Humans are eating the fermented fish, that's so popular here in the north of Sweden. We're sitting in the little cabin because the smell isn't all that pleasant,(they say????????? I liked it, but didn't get a taste ?)   Had to travel all the way to Sweden to ride in a vette.........  

 These leaves are made of concrete on ruhbarb leaves. Moms friend is extremely talented and artistic

I have so much more to tell, but now the breakfast is on the table, and that's something I don't want to miss, so see you later everybody................hugs and wet kisses

Det är intressant att se vad en "turist" ser i det som är vardagsmat för oss som bor där. Vi har vår stuga i närheten av The High Coast bridge :-) så Ångermanland är vår hemmabana. Jag hoppas verkligen att du och matte får en fin höstmånad i Norrland. Du kanske skulle pröva älgjakt i stället för kattjakt :-)

Ainas verkar vara ett trevligt övernattningsställe. Det ska vi komma ihåg när vi åker norrut. Skönt att ni kom fram ordentligt, men fånigt att du inte fick följa med på björnfikat... Kramis!

Where was the AINA bed & Breakfast??? Before they built Högakusten bridge they only had Sandöbron. My American relatives went to that during the 1950's & expected to see Polar bears walking around there, I think they even sold postcards with them edited on the cards... Did I see a tin of Surströmming on one of the pictures???? Ahh what a lovely aroma!!.. Well Buttons I hope that you really are enjoying the trip so far. I am looking forward to see many more pictures and to hear how the trip is going. Lots of London hugs.. ♥♥♥

Aina's was in Härnösand, and yes I used to send the postcards with the polarbears in front of the trainstation. as a matter of fact, I think you can still buy them

Vilka mysiga sovställen ni hittat!
Och du verkar ju passa väldans bra här i mattes "puppycountry":)
Själv gillar jag inte så'na där sura fiskar, men jag tycker ändå det var lite taskigt att inte låta dig smaka... Lika taskigt som att katten inte kunde stanna och morsa!
Din idé om grävning i sågspån efter blötgräspromenad dock... Stackars din matte!:)
(Förresten, det är inte så att din matte och du är i Sthlm under Allhelgonahelgen? Första helg i november. Är Syfestival då...:))

We left the hotel around 11 am and continued North on route 1 following Maines coastline, many small villages start to look much the same but New Caste stuck out not only because there was a 24-hour rest stop nearby. My Mom had just stopped so both o...
