So the one week or so of unplugged life turned into three weeks, but you know how it is, life happens. Although there hasn’t been any artsy things going on around here, there has been quite a few magic moments.
Week one was spent with our young ones at my favourite place in the world, Skottevik Feriesenter. Five people, two cars, lots of luggage, and about 1/3 on the way there my car broke down. It was hot and quite a long wait outside a gas station. Thank goodness young ones can be easily occupied with ice cream and digging in the sand.
The car eventually got transported to a nearby garage, the five of us and two car seats crammed into husband’s car, luggage stuffed into a rented trailer and on we went. Skottevik was everything I remembered from when we used to spend our summers there 8 years ago, but this time we stayed in an apartment instead of a caravan. I love how they are built in a street style typical for the region.
It was quite windy most of the week, but we had some perfect days. This is my spot, on a bench on the pier. I absolutely love the old greyed wood.
Our days were filled with playing, canoeing, catching crabs and starfishes, sun, sea and cuddles, although grandson could basically have lived at the soccer field, playing soccer with grandpa and boys of all ages from everywhere.
The first half of our second week was spent out on the terrace. It was quiet and peaceful just enjoying looking up in the sky. The rest of the week was spent at the cabin, not doing much except for soccer matches at the terrace and enjoying lazy days.
This week has been full of chores and errands and trying out (read playing with) the new car which I got on Monday. I’ll be leaving again next week for The Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, so I need to get my ducks in order before that, but first I get to spend a couple of days with the boys.
Have a wonderful weekend!
