Saturday was just as cold as it was beautiful. The temperature display in our car showed minus 10 C (14 F). Biting cold but the sun was shining and the sky was clear. At these northern latitudes one is so starved for sunshine that you just can't stay in when the sun finally does come out. The favorite Swedish saying is that there is no bad weather just bad choices and good choices of clothing. Well we decided to go to Hagaparken and go for a nice walk there. Passed these two horses that probably have some difficulty finding something edible under the snow. I will take you a long on my walk and show you what a beautiful winter day can look like.
The snow that fell during the night had covered every single branch painting every tree and bush in frosty white.
There are lots of winter activities going on. The Swedes are very active and love their their winter sports such as skiing and skating.
Pretty much all lakes around Stockholm are now frozen solid. It opens up the opportunity to take a walk and reach areas you normally can't reach because of open water at other times of the year that you can't cross.
Lot's of people out. Every one just want to feel a bit of that sun on their faces. I am really happy about my new winter jacket as well as my winter shoes. You got to dress warm in several layers to stay warm.
A couple on skates being pulled by their dogs. Looked like a lot of fun.
The landscape was so beautiful. Almost like a perfect winter post card. On days like these even I find beauty and love for winter. When the sun is shining and you have the time to go out and enjoy a walk like this that is something that does bring great pleasure.
The weekend has been good. The party was fun and both me and C had a good time. It was actually E´s birthday on that very day. We had a wonderful dinner. She had managed to rearrange her furniture so that she could seat 26 people in her large kitchen/living room space. The table was set beauitfully and the food was deliscious. After a three course dinner the bar was set up. She had a proffessional bartender there doing the drinks for all the guests. It did get kind of late and me and C did not get home until 3 am but we had a great time.
