We went on a cruise to Stockholm with Eddi and his two children.

I took the boys up to the bridge to look at all the buttons and screens there and to see how they steer a big ship. The other boys on board don't get to see that.

Many buttons, many switches.

(This one here is just about my hair.)

I took some pictures of other ships trough the binoculars on the bridge. Lomo effect!

The next day in Stockholm felt pretty cold as it was 37 degrees C (!) at home in Finland (!!!) and "only" a mere 20-something in Sweden. I wore long sleeves for the first time in ages!

We went to Gröna Lund.

I am clearly becoming old as I prefer the small flying elephants to any other attraction with more action than that. They just spin too much.

In the afternoon we took the small ferry back to town and our ship and it was windy as hell. (I hate it when it's windy. But at least it's a little funnier with a big skirt on since it goes "flufff!" all the time.)

A swedish mermaid.

Sunset at sea, on the way home.

It sounds like a great day, and you look beautiful! Love the hair as always!


Clare said...

Your hair looks divine! I've never seen anyone look so elegant on a ferry...

Anita said...

Oh! I have the very same trashy diva dresses, well, I think they are not exactly the same since I wanted the country club dress with that gorgeous blue pattern and it was not available, so I got the circle day dress with that blue poppies pattern and a country club with the butterflies. But they are amazing anyway! (Love your style)

Sounds like you had an absolutely amazing trip! I love the photo of the ship through the binoculars.

What a lovely trip!
Here in my city we call a trip like that a "bate-e-volta", something like "there and back", and usually you don't spend the night.. Is that what you guys did?

Clare: thank you - but the ferries are pretty elegant themselves so some people dress up and all. Well, and others don't :)

Anita : how funny - I wanted the poppies day dress but it was sold out so I had to settle for the country club instead :D But now afterwards I'm almost happier about it as it has a really great cut.

Stephanie : Well almost, but it does take one night to get to Sweden by sea from Helsinki, so you are gone for two nights anyway, even though only a mere day in Stockholm.

Archives, Leia, Rosie, Q, Cheryl : Thank you
