Onlookers

Åskådare Wooden booth Högstabanan A sport for everyone People Medics
A few photos of the people that just like me decided to check out the 2019 Crosscart National championships at the Högstabanan racecourse over the weekend. Great fun to watch. The youngest competitor was six years old, The oldest quite a few decades older. We were lucky with the weather as this might have been the last Summer day of the year. A few more action photos from this event tomorrow.

Two Local Girls

Emma  Tietjens Melanie Lunde
Local girl Emma Tietjens from C-Pro Racing in her Mini at the Crosscart event at Högstabanan earlier today. I got a free ticket to the National Championships at the Högstabanan race track so I decided to check out the sport. The second photo shows another local girl in action, namely Melanie Lunde from Haninge MK. I came home with around 300 photos and I will probably show you a few more in the coming days. Crosscart is a fairly new sport, it is also sometimes called off-road kart. During the qualifying rounds, every racer gets to compete in three heats before the best go through to the finals that will be held tomorrow.

Feeding the ducks

Mellanberg
A new urban runoff is under construction here near the old farm Mellanberg. The rainwater will run through Mellanberg and down to this dam at Dammträsk. There will also be a bike path and a promenade here that will connect Vega, Kvarntorp, and Kolartorp. The woman feeding the ducks from the new pier comes here every now and with her dog.

And the award goes to...

And the award goes to...
...any other bridge really. I call this one the bridge to nowhere. Mostly because I took a photo of it before it was finished. But it is a bit on the ugly side.

What symbolises growth and progress?

What symbolises growth and progress?
This used to be a little forest with a bunch of old Summer houses. All but one house disappeared quite a few years ago. The new apartment buildings here at Kvarteret Sjögläntan in Handen are just a short walk from the Rudan nature reserve, and it is also very close to the mall and the commuter station so this will most likely be a popular place to live. brfsjoglantan1.se/
