FRIDAY MORNING AND SUNNY

Av EvaLena Hallgren - 24 juli 2015 06:42

Second day without rain.................amazing, but now it's windy instead so it doesn't feel very warm................but inside Lucy all is well.

Yesterday Mom started early to paint more lady bugs after she found many perfect stones at the beach 

 


later in the day we went in to the small town where they cook candy canes, it was so crowded I was happy to sit in my wagon and watch everybody from a safe place. You should hear all the remarks from people in the streets, like they never seen a dog with their own wheels before.

I don't care I know they're only jealous.

   

According to Mom there is one problem with me in the wagon..............????? She says it has to stop, or else ...........

oooohhhhhh, I'm shaking in my hair .............what is it ? .............Every time we pass a large mean dog, I tell them off very loudly, and since most don't see me or know I'm there....................you should see the look on their faces...........it's hilarious to me ..............but Mom finds it annoying.....................OH well, can't please every body..........AND I was perfectly quiet in that restaurant you snuck me into............don't expect to get your way ALL the time......

 


I got threathen with another ferry if I don't behave..................I saw the ferry and backed down..............I HATE those rides. This ferry is very short and goes out to a small island in Swedens second biggest lake. Noone felt like doing it, so I lucked out this time.

The fishing boat looks real cool ...............

 

   

 

We didn't stay in town vry long, and on the way back Ove stopped to take pictures of this beautiful field with cornflowers...........growing in a field of rye

   

   

 

and Mom shot thistles

 

 

On the top of the hill is The ruins of Brahehus Castle. Due to 270 m height above sea level and 180 m above the lake, a fantastic wide panoramic view of lake Vättern and the island of Visingsö ( where the ferry goes) opens from the ruins. Built for Count Per Brahe in the 1640s, the castle soon was come in desolation in the 1680s and had suffered at fire in 1708. Now it is close to the highway and popular place for tourists and recreation.

 

 

 

 

Back with Lucy Mom contiued painting, and Elvy is showing pictures of some of her crafty things she made in her garden .........


   

Later we drove up on the hill to look at the wiev......................it was spectacular

   

Mom and Elvy is discussing if it's barley or rye ears  on this field........................hahaha, Mom has been living in the city too long.........there's 4 kinds, rye, wheat, barley and oats...............take a pick ....hihihi

 

 

Sweden use wind power for electricity 5% in 2012 and 2% in 2010. (couldn't find any numbers for 2015). Sweden consumes about 150 terawatt hours of electricity per year of which about 6 TW·hours is generated from domestic wind power  resources. Many more projects are on the way and you see these all over the place..................here's a link to more facts about this clean energy

Some people are against it, but since we don't know enough of all this stuff, we have no opinion

 

 


finally a picture of the sun going down about 9.30 PM.............here in the south it does get dark at night......and time flies............it's the end of July, so it'll be winter soon again...............................2 more months at least Mom says, but by than we'll be back in sunny Florida.............................

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...
