Like There’s No Night

So, I’m in Sweden!

It’s only been here a couple of days, but here’s a quick recap:

I took this while waiting to fly from Heathrow (Hi Babs!). I was going to use it for Flying Solo, and then I didn’t because I didn’t write anything for Flying Solo. Or anything for the last week for that matter.

A train from Copenhagen then brought me across the Öresund Bridge into Malmo.

Suddenly in the Swedish countryside, I’m reunited with Mingus and Sathi, my old buddies from Montreal. Sathi has been shedding his winter fur like a mofo.

Then there’s Mingus. She caught a hedgehog last night and almost killed it. Luckily, we managed to pry it from her jaws and save it before she could break its back. Bad Mingus!

On the Baltic Sea we found an abandoned WWII bunker. They make good lookouts when scoping out the horizon for ships.

Horses dot the countryside too:

The days are also really long. It’s not quite the arctic and it actually does get dark. It’s still kind of like there’s no tomorrow.

  • Nice shots, but now I’m curious why you’re in Sweden.  Are you cheese-scouting?

  • Very cool.  I’m glad you’re enjoying your trip.  Love the picture of the Baltic Sea.

  • Hi Mike! I’ll catch you on your way back 😉  Those dogs are beauties, but I’m glad Mingus didn’t kill the hedgehog!

  • I love the dogs!  The light is kind of hazy there, isn’t it?  But where are all the gorgeous blond people?  I think the cold would get to me sometimes.  The winters being so dark would too.  Still, I think it looks like a gorgeous place.

  • Sounds like a great trip thus far! Sweden is a place I’d love to visit one day.

  • Did you explore the bunker!? Wow! And those doggies are awesome!

    I can’t tell you how relieved I am to see a dog here.

  • It looks like you are having a great time. Love Sathi and Mingus.  They are adorable.  I am sure Mingus wasn’t being bad.  He thought the hedgehog was a chew toy.

    I could stay in that bunker, love the sound of that sea. A tad cold though me thinks. 

  • I’m just vacationing and visiting a friend. But I might bring some back. Their cheese actually travels well.

  • Thanks, Linda. It’s awesome by the sea, but it was craaazy windy.

  • I never saw one up close. It took hours before he unrolled himself and finally got the nerve to run away. Cute things, but a little slow to self preserve 🙂

  • The air has a definite chill. Like late August. And yes, the light has an interesting quality to it. Silvery almost. It can be very bright too, but not in winter. Having a a hard time imagining how gray they are.

  •  If you like herring and blonds, it’s the place to be. And not necessarily in that order. 

  •  They’re my favorite wolves 🙂 The bunkers are all cemented shut unfortunately. Pretty cool to see though

  • Yeah, the dogs are pretty cool. Hey, that reminds me. Have you seen my cat blog?

  • Great peek into your vacation! Bring back some chocolate for me, would you?

  • Love seeing the pooches in the graphic. See, the thing about Mingus is…everything’s a chew toy 🙂

  •  Yep, it was pretty windy and cold. We were back down there today and…no wind at all, and warm. 100% different feel.
