Happy Midsummer!

Midsummer is a big holiday in Sweden. We eat pickled herring and new potatoes with sour cream and fresh chives, drink snaps and have fresh strawberries for dessert. There is also dancing around the maypole and a bunch of other traditions.

I've had a great time hanging out in my mother's house by the sea. Plenty of food, nice walks and wild strawberries (smultron) in the garden.
This morning we went for a swim in the sea and bought breakfast rolls on the way back. The water was 16 degrees Celsius - a bit cold but it's still a great way to start the day.

Sunset by the sea.
