It was a real treat to just get out into the forest and enjoy the day there. It is said that a visit and walk in a forest can be compared to a spa visit and I think there is a lot of truth in that. The peace and tranquility, the fresh smell and the sound of the leafs in the wind. It is just very relaxing to be in the woods.
Ekerö means Oak island and you understand why it has gotten this name. There are a large amount of Oaks growing here. They are very impressive with their large trunks and majestetic green canopy of leafs. You feel so small standing looking up at them.
Ekerö is just lovely in so many ways. Out here you really left the big city behind and you are out in the country side even if it is just a 30 minute drive outside of Stockholm.
Don't worry these mushrooms we did NOT pick. We do know they are poisonous. But still they are very pretty and colorful.
To me this was just kind of like having a spa day. Green fields and green canopies.
Small country roads to slowly stroll on.
Took a picture of this sign because it was kind of funny. It is a warning for the hens and chickens. It makes it sound as if these chickens would be agressive but I guess it is directed to drivers to take care not to run over the hens and chickens as they are parking in this parking lot.
We did stop at this place where they had corn fields and sold corn. It was one of those Pick your own farms. Every one was handed a bucket and when you had done your picking the corn cobs were weighed and you payed. Love these kinds of Pick your own places.
