WEDNESDAY MORNING

Av EvaLena Hallgren - 17 juli 2013 06:57

Finally got a chance to update my blog, I know it was a real long time ago, but it isn’t my fault, nor my Moms. We have been visiting at a place that have very slow connection, and Mom is very impatient with that sort of thing. I did make her try, but she gave up after 10 min..........
Anyway, we’re on our way north again, and we drove on some really bad bumpy. roads (some gravel parts ) yesterday. The scenery was amazing but nowhere to stop and take pictures, so Mom tried to take a few as we were driving
 
     
Mom gave me a job to sit up front as a lookout for moose ??? She couldn't’ be serious ? sure made me laugh
 
 
Nope, she was dead serious, on these roads there’s no fences to protect you from wildlife running out in front of the car, so you better be careful she said. Ok, so I did as told............but after a while with nothing but forest, I got real tired and had to take a nap.
 
 
One night we parked next to a park in the middle of town. Mom lived in this town as a puppy so she knew her way around. As a matter of fact, she was a mail-carrier here, and even if some new buildings has popped up, the addresses and the old town was still exactly the same.
 
           
 
Mom said she had a similar radio when she was a puppy. I looked and thought she must have lied about her age, because THAT radio is real old.............wonder if there be less treats for me now ?
 
 
 
There was a mass exercise class in the park, we didn't join in, but it looked like a lot of fun

 
This giant mushroom water tower has a restaurant on the top,  not sure if it’s still there though. It was real early when we passed here on our way north again
 
 
 
This is a very popular tourist place and as you can see it was real crowded, not a place for us said Mom, but she still wanted to show me the boats and the locks, so she managed to get a spot for Adrienne and we took a quick walk.
 
     
This canal is Swedens biggest civil engineering project ever, 58 locks and 87 km. manmade canal, and for you that's interested in the history, here's a link in English http://www.gotakanal.se/en/artiklar/Historia-ib/The-history-of-the-Gota-Canal/
 
 
 
 
as we’re driving along there’s beautiful rapeseed fields on both sides, but again difficult to find places to stop for pictures.
 
 
once again we’re driving on small roads with rolling hills and forests and lakes and forests and lakes...........and more forests...........who knew there’s so many trees in Sweden.
 
 
 
 
we took a short brake by a lake, and I thought for sure I’ll get to go for a swim.............but noooo.... don’t understand why ? I’ve been told there’s no alligators in these lakes. It’s too cold Mom says ...............and why can’t I be the judge of that I say ?
   
Holy smokes, what kind of button is that ? no explanation on what this is, but there’s some old mines near by, so maybe it’s something from there.
 
 
 
this is the Hulk’s horse says Mom............yeah right, anyone can see it’s waaaay too small for The Hulk
 
 
talk about sizes by the way................at Moms cousin there was a horse disguised as a dog, or was it the other way around ? His head was as big as me, and since I couldn’t figure out what exactly it was, I stayed close to Mom for protection, you’ll never know.
 
 
 
Here’s another animal in disguise, horse ? zebra ?
 
 
This is the beautiful place where we parked at Helge’s house. He helped Mom to fix a few things on Adrienne. She had a little leak on the roof, and the bike rack had to be moved up so the reverse sensors worked correctly. We stayed there several days, but I’ll write about that another day, because now the sun is up, ( as it is most of the 24 hours this time of the year) and Mom want’s to get ready to drive a few more miles north.
hopefully we’ll have PC connection tonight so I can continue my story............until than
wet kisses to all

Ni har verkligen åkt många mil under er resa och Sverige är långt, synd att ni inte kom så långt ner som till oss, kanske nästa gång!
En sån radio hade mina matteföräldrar också som de ärvt efter mattes mormor och morfar och matte tyckte den var rolig att skruva på.
Bra att du hjälper matte lite att kolla efter älgar för det är bättre att titta lite än inget alls ;)

I was sad leaving our great camp with great friends, but they had to leave too since they had jobs to go to. I sure hope we'll see them again. It was raining when we got to Niagara Falls, but after a little nap in the car, it lit up and got sunny a...

As always we got up early and there were no screaming kids at the pool to make me nervous. We made some awesome friends at this camping that so graciously shared everything they had with us, so we stayed a second night. I'm pretty sure they dedicat...

Finally, a place with good WiFi so I could continue my story.  So many days and I'm forgetting all the great places and roads so my story may be a little out of order. Right now we are in a town called Lewistown which is not far from Niagara Falls ...

Yesterday was quite an exciting day, after breaking camp packing up muddy wet stuff we headed to Mt.Washington hoping that this time we'll have a view when the sun rises. HA nope not this time either. It was a very scary drive with fog so thick you...

Yesterday we said goodbye to Maine and entered New Hampshire. We didn't drive very far before we set up camp in Gorham close to White Mountain which we were supposed to go up today, but this morning the sky opened up again so we decided to stay cuddl...
