Met up my friends Monika and Carmen in City. Ate at Gunnarsons, I had to have the rhubarb pie with the vanilla creme again.....I'm suspecting I'm filling out but whatever, I am in Sweden eating delicious food. So I will most definitely go back here for more pie.Trackback specific URI for this entry
After that Carmen drove me to Tyresta By. That is a very special place. First of all, we both spent a lot of time there as children so we have many memories from that place. And Tyresta By is also amazingly gorgeous.
"Only 20 kilometres from the centre of Stockholm lies one of the most unspoilt areas of natural beauty in central Sweden – Tyresta National Park and Nature Reserve. The park extends over almost 5,000 hectares. It has been protected to preserve its exceptional natural values and to safeguard its importance for recreation. You can find primeval forest here with pine trees that are 400 years old, clear forest lakes and a large number of unusual plants and animals. You can also see broad-leaved deciduous woodland, open arable land and historical buildings of cultural interest.
A typical feature of primeval woodland is the great number of plant and animal species. Up to 8.000 species of animals can be found here which is four times as many as in exploited forests!" (from Wikipedia).
It was kind of cold and rainy at Tyresta By so I didn't take too many pics. Then we drove to out to our friend Madeleine that I haven't seen in a very long time. I have known Carmen and Madeleine since 2nd grade, we used to spend a lot of time together. It's great to have friends like that! Madeleine lives in one of the cutest houses I have ever stepped my foot in with six dogs and her daughter. I was very impressed!
Now I am home on the couch. I have to shower, wash my hair and get ready for bed. I am getting up at 7 am and leaving for Växjö tomorrow morning to meet my friend Rose-Marie and some other people. 🙂
