West Coast Best Coast?


Heippa pitkästä aikaa! Menneet kuukaudet ovat olleet ihan harvinaisen kiireisiä, mutta nyt loman alettua toivon, että ehdin tänne blogin puolelle taas säännöllisesti. Toivottavasti juhannus meni mukavissa merkeissä! Me vietimme juhannusviikon Smögenissä Ruotsin länsirannikolla. 

Long time no see! These past months have been crazy busy but now that the we’re on holiday I hope, that I’ll be able to blog regularly again. Anyways I wish that you all had a nice Midsummer! We spent the Midsummer week in Smögen, on Sweden’s west coast. 

SmögenSotenäs kommunMatkan sää oli harvinaista herkkua – aikaisemmilla visiiteillämme länsirannikolla on lähes aina sadellut ja/tai tuullut, mutta tällä kertaa saimme nauttia hyvistä ilmoista. En tiedä oliko hyvä sää vai mikä sitten syynä siihen, että menin ja hurahdin näihin länsirannikon maisemiin aivan totaalisesti. Täällä voisin mieluusti viettää koko kesän, ooh!

For once the weather was great which was a great bonus. Not sure if it was the weather or what but I really fell for the west coast. I could easily spend my whole summer in these surroundings, love it!SmögenbadetLasten perinteinen puuhastelumuoto Smögenissä on taskurapujen pyynti. Sanottakoon nyt heti, että tämä on täysin vaaratonta toimintaa siinä mielessä, että päästämme ravut heti pyynnin jälkeen takaisin veteen. Mutta ajatella että tällaisten mönkijöiden kanssa sitä käy uimassa, yyh!

Fishing crabs is a common activity among kids while visiting west coast and our boys love it too. But no worries, we let the crabs back to the water so no suffering here! 

IMG_8230krabbfiskeSmögen, kuten monet muutkin länsirannikon kylät, on todella uskomattoman pittoreski. Näkymät ovat kuin ennen vanhaan, eikö? Kaikista Astrid Lindgrenin teoksista Saariston lapset on muun suurin suosikkini ja näitä näkymiä katsellessa pääsee vähän siihen fiilikseen. 

Smögen is amazingly pittoresque. The scenery is like from old movies, don’t you think? SmögenVeera FalkJuhannusaatto olikin se ainoa vähän pilvisempi päivä, kuten tästä ylläolevasta harmajasta kuvastakin näkee. Juhannuksen vaatetuksessa olen aikas perinteinen eli aattona aina valkoinen (pitsi-)mekko päälle, niin se vaan on. Myös lapsilla oli vaaleansävyiset vaatteet ja raitapaidat päällä, meren äärellä kun nyt ollaan niin let’s go nautical 🙂 

The only slightly grey day was the Midsummer eve. When it comes to Midsummer dressing I’m a traditionalist always wearing white (lace) dress and this year was no expection. Even the boys were light-coloured outfits and nautical sweaters – now that we  were so close to the sea and everything 🙂

Our everyday routine: a short walk to the soccer field nearby. 

Smögen_MG_8273Meidän poikien mielestä eräs Smögenin parhaista puolista nimittäin on hieno fudisruohokenttä, siis ihan aito ruohokenttä! Kyllä kuulkaas kelpaa. 

Smögen has a great grass fotboll field, real grass that is! The kids just love it. 

Smögen vallenMulle tulee tästä alapuolen oikeammanpuolisesta kuvasta jotenkin Michael Jacksonin muuvsit mieleen, hihi! 

Somehow the pic far right reminds me of Michel Jackson’s moves, hehe! fotbollToivon niin, että pääsisimme länsirannikolle vielä uudestaan elokuussa! 

I hope we’d be able to make another trip to the west coast later in August! Smögen

    My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type
    on several websites for about a year and am worried about
    switching to another platform. I have heard very good things about
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content
    into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
