June6 Swedens National Day

Av EvaLena Hallgren - 6 juni 2018 22:04

Today is Swedens National Day and the King Queen and all the princes and princesses are dressed up and waving the flag outside the castle in Stockholm. That's pretty much all there is about that.

Every year we visit with Lotta it has become a tradition to visit Blankaholm Guesthouse and eat potato pancakes with bacon, carrot, and lingonberries. There’s no place on earth that makes them better than here says, Mom and Lotta. I liked them too, they were good but not as good as the bacon.

   


We drove around the inlet passing several small villages and took a walk through the woods to the beach. The water didn’t look inviting at all, not even for Lotta.

       


Today Mom moved Lucy to a neighbors yard (to get away from the cock-a-doodle-doo)and a bee farmer showed Mom his bees.

According to Mom, it was very interesting, buzzing bees aren't my thing so  I watched from Lucy.


 

Mom got to hold the bees while the farmer took out the queen to mark her and cut a little tip off her wing so if she would get the idea to leave the hive she wouldn’t get too far with her gang so the farmer can get them back.


 


I thought it was pretty brave of Mom to hold a bee on a finger but she knew it was the kind in the gang that didn’t have a stinger, the farmer had told her so


 

It has been a very interesting day, now it's time for a tinkle and then to bed............

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...
