‘Lida’ : One Of Stockholm’s Many Green Areas..

We took a trip to ‘Lida’ yesterday. It’s an ‘open air park’ (friluftsgård) , of which we have so many here in Sweden.
We started with the easy kids trail…

Of course, the older three kids ran ahead, which left Ted, Richard and I ambling behind, discovering flowers, how to follow trails, homemade dens, and man made ones (a ‘kota’)…

Eventually we caught up with the others at the top of the mountain, just in time for a snack..

Walking back down the trail both Alfie and Ted were highly enthused at seeing the years first butterflies…!

At the end of the trail both Leon and Maya impressed me with their climbing skills…

We came to a beach where Maya enjoyed the sand, Alfie told me all about wild flowers – and found out that walking with his dad’s glasses on wasn’t easy…!

We walked along the beach, and discovered a jetty…

…and lo and behold, a wild rabbit! The Easter bunny perhaps?
Here are Leon’s pictures…
