At the southernmost point of Sweden.

Yesterday we decided to go to the southernmost tip, Smygehuk to get some lunch and have a walk (they have yummy food from the sea here)

we didn’t walk down to THE tip because the waves would have got us really wet because it was windy , almost storm…

turned my head before heading home and saw that they just missed the moon, hope they hadn’t planned to stop, hihi.

I had a furry visitor in my garden.

one morning I had a furry visitor in my garden…..

at first I thought it was one of my neighbors dogs

but as soon as it turned I realized it was a fox

DSC_4658

it was moving around the garden like it owned it so I guess it has been here many times before

DSC_4660.1

it was so pretty and it didn’t notice me behind the glass door

I got a 15 minute view of my furry friend and then I had to let myself be known since I don’t want it here at all (We’ve got a couple of cats in the family) But it sure was nice to see a healthy Swedish fox up close.

 

 

I’ve landed safely…..

Morning walks along the shore.

I’m back home in our part of the world, Abbekås, Sweden. I think I need some days to settle in our old new home. If you don’t know  – Sweden , Skåne, Abbekås is so beautiful and I’m happy that I can call this home.

Morning safari

My early morning visit to my drivers temple turned into a safari trip. Monkeys, huge mungo, big parrots, peacocks, goats, buffaloes, horses, mules, camels, birds of all kinds, nilgais, cows, snakes, toads and I’m pretty sure I have missed something but still you get the picture….amazing morning and it was only me and Pawan and the guys living at the temple. Seemed like the Gods knew this was my last visit so they really wanted to show me all the beautiful living creatures out here.

I think we saw more than 150 peacocks and peahens but first time I saw so many dancing at one time.
