Summer 2009 in Sweden

….  back home again from the North! 

We visited for one week family and friends around Copenhagen and spent an additional beautiful week in south of Sweden. – Relaxing, relaxing! – Woods and more woods – Water and more water! – Great vacation for  dog and man/woman!

 …. masses of blueberries, raspberries and strewberries for free. Amy soon discovered this rich natural sweetness for herself!

Many thanks to my brother Mark and his wonderful wife, Jette, for a great time in their get-away in Sweden.

We lived very heathy thanks to Jette’s great food and cooking talents. The lake was “cool” and made us wake up quick – followed by a very healthy swedish smoothy for breakfast!

Looking back – another wonderful vacation passed much too fast!

See you soon Scandinavia!
