So even if there is still quite a lot of snow on the ground it very much felt like spring in the air. At first I thought it would be kind of too early in the season to make any kind of excursion trip like this but I was happily surprised to realize that we got to enjoy a great day. This is what I love, taking the car driving somewhere nice, bringing the camera a long and just taking pics and exploring new places.
This sign says "Summer dock" so this is where all the sailing boats come in summer but now it just looked kind of funny seeing this sign with all the snow around it. Summer is still nowhere near and nor are any boats. I would gladly return to this spot in summer. Then it will both be packed with people as well as boats.
The nice thing with Stockholm is that you don´t have to drive very far out before you reach the country side. I love these old Swedish houses. Painted in the classical red color with their corners painted in white. They look so pretty.
It felt really good to take the camera and just try different things and settings getting more familiar with it in general. I think that is the most important thing for me right now. To play around with it and to use it and practice a lot. I think we will become good friends me and Mr.Nikon.
We found this small little café that was open. People were sitting outside in the sunshine enjoying the sun. We decided to have some coffee there and C also got himself a good sandwich. Some of these old fashioned cafés have these very cute symbols and signs such as this coffee pot. I liked the shadow of it being cast on the wall of the house as well.
It was just one of the best moments to sit down here in the sunlight with a cup of steaming hot coffee. Letting those first sun rays warm the skin on your face and listening to those first spring birds singing.
This turned out to be a very nice Sunday. A perfect first spring Sunday and a perfect first spring excursion. Days like these are worth waiting for. I think I got some nice pictures for my photo course and was able to complete my homework assignment. I will tell you more about that tomorrow. Today is the day when day light hours are finally longer than night (vårdagsjämningen).Feels great!
