Swedish archipelago - part I






I I mean, what's not to like? The Swedish archipelago is known all around the world for its enchanting and magical islands and nature, filled with lushy green trees, birds, perfects spots to put a spontaneous anchor or just take a dip, preferably in the evening, naked when no one is watching.
This nature that we have, that come alive like nothing else during summer time, well it's just breath taking and free for everyone to take parts of and enjoy.
I had been eager for years to show M how I spent my summers, on the sea, in a boat, going from island to island, eating lunch at some lovely restaurant, mostly unknown for those not familiar with the sea or the areas, bathing when were we felt as there and then and cruise around, slowly having coffee in the boat or speeding, just to feel the strong wind in our hair.
The liberty and the soul-cleaning that happens when you sit in front of the boat, looking out on the waves clapping against the boat, creating these perfectly made slashes and fractions on the surface only known through these circumstances - well it's like food for the soul.

I was also thrilled to take our two boys to this experience and sure it's a lot of work with two small children on a boat, going off and on the boat with life west and all packing necessary when moving around with them, but oh was it worth it!

Swedish archipelago

Hi there!
My lack of updates this time is purely for the fact that we've been spending some days in my families country house and been out in the breath taking Swedish archipelago for a few days by boat. It's hard to describe our last couple of days. But they were absolutely amazing! 32° and sunny, clear blue water, cobs and islands where ever you looked and water warm and pleasant, perfect for swimming and playing.
We stopped for archipelago lunches every day with sea food at some of the lovely restaurants out on the islands and just enjoyed the best time ever. I have so many pictures I would like to show you ... It will come very soon. My small boys, our new house and just family life in average keeps me very busy as I've mentioned before.

Be patience!

Oysters paradise

In this little petite village along the South of France cost line is where most of the very delicious oysters are breaded and captured. In the top picture you can actually see the metal pines that goes down in the water, on which they grows on.
Living very close to this treasure, we always have them super fresh ordered or served at the local restaurants but they are sent all over the world and are very appreciated. The water is neither salt nor sweet but a combination, so they taste as they should which means, not too much sea.
My man took me here yesterday and of course we had fresh fish and oysters. With Pastis, another classic in this south part of the world, slightly stronger then the recommended 1/5 (one Pastis, five parts water) but who's counting? It was the celebration of the French National day so since we had the cutest balcony seating on the second floor of the small place, we could see everything from there, all over to Seté. It was magical.

Power of nature

I truly embrace the nature we have around here. The garden is just beyond pretty and all the wine yards with hidden tracking paths just outside our gate is like heaven for the soul. Here, nothing feels like a problem and if they occur anyhow, I just dive into the pool to refresh my thought and get a new view of whatever my mind is blocked with. Since I will start working this autumn again from being a stay at home mother for three years, I try to just feel the freedom I've been blessed with during these years. It's been hard, for sure, sometimes harder then I could ever imagine but in the same way I've loved it so truthfully much and I have double feelings of letting go of this litre world I'm living in with my boys and me. I think it will be good in the end, but even so, can't help being afraid of being to captured in a everyday cycle and miss the precious time with my children. I hope this change will be better then I can imagine and that a lot of things in our mutual life will just fall into place, one after one.
