Today we could have made a rerun of the scary movie The fog !
there’s actually water to the left….to the right the “whatever” is on the move towards me……
better get back home….it was wet , dripping fog…..
you never know what’s coming out of that…..

The sky was filled with dark clouds and I could not see the moon until all of a sudden…. I grabbed my camera and ran down to the shore and got there just in time for it to disappear behind some massive clouds again ! Im not the one who gives up so I waited and waited, freezing my fingers off for around 20 minutes but then it showed up from behind the dark clouds. it really was a supersuper moon. Wonder if I will get some sleep at all tonight..maybe I will be out howling?
tonight was good practice since it’s not easy to catch the moon.

Today the first of Jan 2018 started out along the shore together with my dear friend Katrin. Almost no wind and a couple of degrees celsius.
Im happy to have a friend who inspires me when my inspiration is low. She’s a great artist and takes such artistic -esthetic pictures.

last week we had some quite windy days…stormy cold wet days….not nice at all…. but after a winter storm I always go treasure hunting along the shore
windy cold and dark….even in the morning
but I found some treasures ( as always)
a big piece of amber
and a piece of an old rusty can.
the clouds where all over and so low this morning…I think the sun was out approx 15 minutes…that was it for the day !

if visiting Abu Dhabi you have got to squeeze in a visit to the grand mosque. it’s magical and soooo beautiful. (reminded me of Taj Mahal)

The newly opened ( 2 weeks ago ) Louvre is a must-to-do if in Abu Dhabi. I brought my niece who’s 15 and she really enjoyed it.
the Louvre has 12 galleries, it’s a journey from prehistoric to contemporary art.
Among the Top ten masterpieces to look out for are:
Leonardo da Vinci – La Belle Ferronnière 1490, Vincent Van Gogh Self -portrait 1887, Portrait of Fayoum Egypt Antinoopolis 225-250 A.D., Jacques -Louis David Napoleon crossing the Alps 1803, Claude Monet La gare Saint -Lazare 1877, Bactrian Princess central Asia end of 3rd beginning of 2nd millenium BCE, Jackson Pollock number 26A Black and White 1947,
then you’ll find Miro’, Hopper, Caravaggio, Vermeer, etc etc etc
I must confess that it was the building in itself that caught my attention. Love the architecture. It’s amazing what they can do…..
my companion today
If you plan to visit you need a couple of hours at least.

today our walk in the forest resulted in yet lots more yellow summer chanterelles, (wild mushrooms)
almost a kg ! If you want to know what we are cooking tonight be sure to check in on the next post !
while looking for the yellow gold we found this snake….a blindworm, en kopparödla !
and we saw beetles everywhere…..
all of a sudden we saw a tiny little bird fly out of the moss and there I found a nest with the smallest eggs ever….(well, bigger than the hummingbird though)
5 tiny eggs…I do wonder what bird though? anyone who knows?
right before getting into the car we found these colorful “dreamer” ( bredbrämad bastardsvärmare)
mother nature sure is fantastic.

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…
notice that it’s closer to Moscow1524 km, than to Treriksröset 1572 km, which is in Sweden !
summer checklist: a soft ice cream, check.
the old beautiful warehouse which is now a café and a store that sells local craftsmanship-art
an old window with an old view but still beautiful
to the west of the harbor there’s a light house station that holds a B&B.
