Yesterday, the 6th of June was our National Day

and it turned into a beautiful swedish summers day with flags visible all over

we celebrate our National Day in honor of  two historical events.....on 6th june 1523 Gustav Vasa was elected king, and on the same date in 1809 a new constitution was adopted...

we celebrated by having family and friends over for dinner.....and we got to see our daughter and husband for the first time in a year ! that's worth celebrating, don't you think ?

at around 10.30 all of us decided to go for a late evening walk...needed some exercise after all the food, wine and the oh so yummy strawberry cake...

as usual we ended up walking to the harbour

it was almost magical with the lights and the calm water

I love the long swedish evenings with the wonderful light

what a wonderful National Day we had even though we didn't wave any flags

enjoy your saturday
we will
