The Forest Gold

The Forest Gold

A basket full of golden chanterelles. That's what Kerstin is holding in her hand. I met Kerstin and her husband Bror near the Björklund farm yesterday. They found the chanterelles somewhere in the nature reserve Gullringskärret. The exact location is a secret, but there's plenty more to be found. Kerstin and Bror loves the outdoors life. Be it in the forests, or on the water. They have sailed in the Stockholm archipelago for more than forty years. A few years ago they sold their house and now live in an apartment near the old vicarage in Västerhaninge. One of their neighbours (and good friend), is the former Mayor of Haninge whom I met here last year.

Great-looking couple. It is wonderful when two people are able to go through life together sharing so many interests. They look like fun, out-going folks!

When you said "Forest Gold" I immediately thought of lingonberries but mushrooms are great, too!
God helg onskar Lingon Leif
PS - Maybe next you can look for some lingonberry pickers... (Hint, hint)

I tried this a few years ago with my parents in-laws, but I trampled more than I got... They never invited me again.

These two are good looking enough to be models for the outdoor life.
