I am most often happiest when I am on the water. While I did not get to spend as much time as I would have liked to in Stockholm’s archipelago this summer, I did manage to squeeze in a few trips. And when my friend James was in town for a visit this summer, we took an afternoon cruise into the close-to-Stockholm archipelago.

The day was sunny and warm, so I could not resist leaving work just a tad early to join James and Anthony, a friend of his. I had done this boat tour before, and the guys had spent the morning touring, so we were all happy to just sit back and relax. We had a traditional Swedish style lunch of herring and shrimp, together with a bottle of white wine. It was a perfect way to spend a summer afternoon.

James, it MAY have been more than one….It was such a fabulous day, wasn’t it?
Hope all is well!
