First BBQ of the year

Drevviken The Chef Mr. Anonymous
The top photo shows the view towards Lake Drevviken from the veranda at Villa Blåmes in Norrby. It was a nice afternoon/early evening-BBQ last Wednesday. The bike ride home was fun after a few drinks, beer, whiskey, and liqueur. I was followed by a police helicopter for a while but it turned out that they were chasing two guys on a stolen motorcycle. I spotted both the motorcycle and a few police officers at Hanveden. The second photo shows the Chef enjoying a glass of Påskmust. The third snap is of my gin drink with hallon and lingon, with Mr. Anonymous in the blurry background.

The annual walk at Gullringskärret takes place on April 26th. When I biked through the nature reserve a few days ao people were out and about all over the place with cameras and smartphones. I might go back for the organized walk just to see how many people will show u

The fatbur, (sometimes spelled fatabur), on the hill at the Djursnäs manor near Ösmo in Nynäshamn. It dates back a couple of centuries. Back in the day a storage room for clothes and valuables. Normally built upon a hill so that it would be easy to defend.

Friends chatting away

Friends chatting away Spring Blossom
Enjoying the sunshine. Two women chatting away at Eskilsparken earlier in the week. They were curious as to why I walked over and stood on the bench. I told them that I wanted a Spring blossom photo against a clear blue sky. I see, said one of them, they then continued to gossip about their male friend, the photographer that always photographed naked girls.

Social distancing

Social distancing Dear Customer Sädesärla
Social distancing the Swedish way. I took a walk to Lövhagen on Friday. Quite a few people had the same idea. I enjoyed coffee and a waffle in the Spring sunshine together with two friends. A large sign informed us about the new guidelines and everyone followed them, at least I hope they did.

Super-post-Panamax Norvik
The two Super-post-Panamax cranes at the new Norvik port in Nynäshamn. They are 120 meters high and 130 meters wide. They weigh 2000 tonnes and can lift 80 tonnes. The port will open for business in May. Driving towards the port on Friday I read out some of the crane statistics to my friends in the car, and they responded, no no no, we were here last week for a quick look and the cranes aren't really all that big. Turns out they really are that big. My friends had been there before the cranes were operational.

Easter Egg

Glittering Easter egg in Västerhaninge. Super weather yesterday. I headed south to Nynäshamn with two friends. We checked out a couple of big construction sites before going for a longish walk that took us to coffee and a waffle at Lövhagen. Quite a few people out and about but most people followed the new guidelines. I will show you photos in the next few days. Enjoy Easter anyway you can.

Sure was a nice day for it. These four guys were working out at the outdoor gym at the lakes at Rudan on Tuesday afternoon.

No quarantine order in Sweden just yet. Yesterday was a good day for a bike ride to Rudan and a picnic or a BBQ down by the water.

No traffic

Sjögläntan Parkstråket
No quarantine in Sweden, but most people that can work from home are doing just that so it is not too much traffic anywhere. This was Vallavägen in Handen earlier today. Normally a busy road but not today. The building here might look familiar to you as I have photographed it a few times already this year. It is a new apartment complex called Sjögläntan.

Mug shot
Been doing a lot of that lately. The most exciting thing that happened today was nothing at all, but I did take a photo of this coffee mug.

Quote of the day

Quote of the day
Edward Blom quote of the day. "Nothing more meaningless than a carbohydrate that is not beer". I follow Edward on twitter and he mentioned the other day that he had designed a series of beer glasses, so I ordered a couple. Skål!

Biking through Gullringskärret yesterday I figured it was time to look for some "Vitsippor". And I found a few. Two weeks from now millions of wood anemones will turn this whole area white. There's also a guided tour here on April 20 if it hasn't been canceled because of the Corona crisis.

Swedish word of the day. Olydig. Disobedient. Kinda funny me thinks. As seen on the Bridge to nowhere earlier today.
