This is a lake I set out to find the other day...and did! It was beautiful and surrounded by tall pines and evergreens on top of a ridge. The water was pitch black and thus somewhat intimidating. I enjoyed the serenity and quietness and the cool swim. This is one of my favorite things about Sweden. Get a map, put on your boots, and hike out in search for new places.
This pictures is taken a couple of weeks ago, since these two are currently in the US. With the flotation vest and a "noodle" Sam is very couragous and follows mommy pretty far out into the lake. Maybe he'll be the next Phelps... This picture is taken in London, St. James's park. Laurie and I celebrated our 10th anniversary in London for an extended weekend, though this year is actually our 11th. This park and this "pose" had been on Laurie's wishlist ever since we left London last time. It was a great weekend getaway and we had a lot of fun, including dancing to "Mama mia" in the theatre (Laurie's dancing could actually pass for dancing...mine probably not).
