We’ve been here a few times, but Ted really wanted to come again. I think he has a certain respect for the troll….
Yesterday Ted and I enjoyed the company of ‘scout’ Janne P, and went, first to the farm at Tyresta, and then on to the frog pond, past the bee hives, and on to the bird tower.
It was a fabulous trip, and nice to see an area undiscovered by our family….
…the whole family with farmor, in the national park at Nacka, Hellasgården….
We then went for a lovely walk..
Richard taking photos too….😆
Still, it was lovely to be out! 😀
A stunning walk in a stunning country, just a short drive away….. 😊
So the lake has frozen over, and we wanted to try Teddy with a spot of first time ice-skating…
There was a lot of falling – from Richard too, as he tried to keep Teddy upright. Teddy kept trying to sit down while skating – we kept telling him “there’s nothing to sit on”… 😉
Eventually Alfie’s patience ran out and he skated off…
It’s been a long late summer – who would have thought that it could be so warm still in September in Sweden? But that warmth is predicted soon to end, so we made the most of the last day by getting down to the sea, by Nickelviken, in Nacka.
It was extremely funny to have people stop and take photographs of them doing this, and one lady from America, remarked at how wonderfully ‘old fashioned’ they were and how simply they played…it made me proud…and of course, lots of pond weed came home with us! Maya was planning on making a mat – Alfie a t-shirt for Ted… 😉
