Trip to the Stockholm archipelago

Both of our lives are getting busy again from Monday and we had ‘that feeling’ hanging over us yesterday, so we took a boat from our apartment into town, and then took another boat out to the Stockholm archipelago. It took us about 20 minutes to get from Stockholm to Fjäderholmarna (the Feather Islands). We had a leisurely lunch, looked into the various workshops and galleries and went for a walk before catching the boat back into town.

Things were very quiet due to COVID-19 so there were only Swedes there, and all very good at social distancing. It was quite sad for the crafters there though as they said their business had dropped to almost nothing. There are potters, weavers, blacksmiths, glassblowers, and painters working on this tiny island. Many of them survive for the rest of the year on what they make during the summer, which is really sad.

These obelisks represent air and water, and the lights show in real time how good Stockholm is at cleaning the air and water.
The amusement park Gröna Lund has been closed all summer. It is rather eerie to pass a silent, deserted amusement part at this time of year.
I have been using smaller bags all summer as I cannot take my normal big ones on the Harley. This one is by Rizzo but I swapped out the strap for my Gabriella by P one.


We bought a purple crystal bowl to keep our candy in!
