ALREADY WEDNESDAY

Av EvaLena Hallgren - 21 augusti 2013 20:13

It’s unbelievable how time flies when you’re having fun, it’s already Aug.21 and fall sure is in the air. Flowers are wilting and it’s much cooler. Leaves on trees haven’t changes color yet, but from what I see it’ll happen real soon.................so pretty soon we’ll prepare for our drive south.
Still it’s so gorgeous here, and last Saturday we went to visit Mom friends in their summer house.............we were driving forever on a small dirt road, I noticed Mom being nervous, and I didn’t like it all, as a matter of fact I threw up a little............At last her friend met up in his car to help her find the right road...................and OMG I thought he was kidding !!!! Mom and Adrienne is going to drive in there ???? ..............when I heard Mom revving the engine ..........................I laid down and closed my eyes...............they made it .........(the picture doesn't show what a steep hill it was )
 
 
after a big sigh of relief we both noticed an absolutely breathtakingly gorgeous place. Water on both sides and the cutest little house..............
 
 
This is Jean and Monicas summer house.......................awesome place
  
 
 
 
 
 
There was a lot of catching up and chatting about old times, and a delicious dinner was served............evening went very quickly and it soon got dark and time for bed
 
   
 
it rained a lot all night so the morning walk was wet and gross...............I was not a very happy camper
   
 
later in the day sun came out and everything dried up, so Jean and Monica took us for a ride around the lake...............I never knew there was so many trees...........and a dining place by a lake in the middle of nowhere, no houses in sight ............looked like it has been here for awhile.
 
   
 
This was quite interesting ????? smelled good, but it was weird ? nothing like I smelled before ?..............It’s moose poop Mom said, Ohhh ............like meatballs at the stable ?.................judging by the size I thought it’ll be gourmet , but noooooooooo ............... what a disappointment.
I was told some industrial children made necklaces of it, and sold to tourists.............what about the smell ?? they varnished them ...hahaha
 
 
 
This is called the red gold of the forest......................it’s lingon berries and a very important jam to serve with Swedish meatballs. When Mom was a puppy she had to pick 2 liters to bring to the school kitchen..... and also 1 liter of blueberries. ( the wild ones that grows in the woods like lingon)  
After this visit we continued to a small town called Fällfors, ............A place Mom often visited as a puppy. We stayed over night by the stream where the salmon grows, but I tell you more about that tomorrow, it’s now time for evening “fika”
 
   
 
Good Night and wet kisses to you all

We both had the best night's sleep and woke up early to a very foggy and damp morning. After coffee (for Mom) we went for a walk in the quiet woods. Mom decided to stay here one more night to rest it's a very rustic place but it's quiet and dark at n...

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...
