Farm House


This newly renovated building is part of one of the old farms at Östnora. From here you can walk down to the sea, beach, camping and marina, in a few minutes. What you don't see here is the road that passes by only two meters from the fence. It's the dangerous, Road 73. Construction of the new road has started, and there will be a big bridge in the forest behind this farm, so the traffic will then be down to cyclists and tractors. There are many old farm houses in this area. Some of the gravel roads here dates back to the Viking era. There are also a hill fort overlooking the bay not far from here and I'm planning to climb up for a photo shoot soon.

Bigger photo.

For a true Swede these kind of red houses evokes a nostalgic feeling. I'm thinking about the books by Astrid Lindgren; The children of noicy village, Emil's pranks, the children of troublemaker street, Mardie's adventure and Pippi Longstocking!
Thanks for doing that!
