flashback friday | road-trip to greenport

greenport-typo greenport-01 greenport-02 greenport-03 greentport-05when living in nyc family came to visit and we had some great road-trips. one of them went to greenport. greenport is this tiny town bustling in the summer time. it’s located on the north fork of long island. had lunch at this super cute fish restaurant away from the main street. it was located at a pier where they sat up tables…can’t remember the name but it was good and wow what a view. went for a swim on the tip of greenport by the orient point county park and we were the only ones there…loved that!

discovering our city | petrus

petrus-01 petrus-02 petrus-03 petrus-05love this bakery petrus at söder, it’s really close to where we live which is a little dangerous because it’s that good. here you can buy their baked goods to bring home or sit and eat their delicious bread and cakes and get a cup of coffee too. look at this little cozy nook they made with the milkcan and sheepskin where you can sit and enjoy their goodies.

discovering our city | rosendals trädgård

rosendal-garden-01 rosedahl-garden-07 rosedahl-garden-02 rosedahl-garden-08 rosedahl-garden-03 rosedahl-garden-04 rosedahl-garden-05 rosedahl-garden-06rosendals trädgård is this open garden where they grow bio veggies and fruit. during summer they have a farmers market (we bought cavolo nero…haven’t been able to find it anywhere). when we were there they made pizzas in their wood oven and they looked fantastic. they have made a cafe and a bakery inside the greenhouses, but we brought own fika and enjoyed that under the apple trees. i want to go there when it’s christmas time (which is soon?!) and drink a glass of glögg and eat swedish pepparkakor.

summer | part two

summer-part-II-typosummer-part-II-01 summer-part-II-02 summer-part-II-03 summer-part-II-04 summer-part-II-05 summer-part-II-06 summer-part-II-07 summer-part-II-08 summer-part-II-09 summer-part-II-10 summer-part-II-11 summer-part-II-13this is so far my favourite place in sweden. torö stenstrand. this is also the place where the bear goes surfing late fall/winter (now)…dedicated surfer! here we spend some of the summer with family, camping by the beach, cooking out door, late night talks, relaxing and quietness all in one. it’s good for my soul to visit stenstrand. we camped outside and during the night i was sure i saw a moose. probably a dream but then the next day we saw a mama moose and her twin baby calves. on the picture you can only see a tiny bit of the second baby. my first time actually seeing a moose and then with calves. it was an amazing summer let me tell you.
