Warming Up

At last the ice is gone, the wind down, temperatures rising and the lake is quiet.

Gotta give it a try

Well the lake frooze over the night after having been ice free yesterday. I gave it a shot, but didn’t get far.

Afternoon to Smedsuddsbadet

A fine December day. We started out at noon. The ice that built during the night is melting today (again). Want a slideshow? Click on the picture below. Fire! Or just reflexions from the setting sun… It’s 2:30 pm and dusk. Looking forward to when the light returns.

Råcksta in -2C

A crisp December morning, -2C and a bit of wind. The lake is starting to freeze, so Peter and I had better catch the moment.

Fall Again

Last Wednesday we had 40 centimeters of snow, but it’s gone now. Click this next picture for a slide show: From the Nockeby bridge looking SSE. The beavers are hungry. Beaver nest. Is this dusk or dawn? Well it’s 11 a.m. Hey, I just saw a guy in shorts get in the water, swim out 50 meters…

Bällsta river

After a frosty night, but with promises for a fair day before winter supposedly arrives later this week, met up with Anders at Swima in Huvudsta.

Fall colors

A nice and quiet paddle around Kärsön under a gray sky but with burning trees.

Fall or Summer?

Wonderful day for a kayak trip around Drottningholm, Kungshatt and Fågelön.

Koster islands

Drove down to Justus place on Orust on Tuesday night.


Tried the new paddle, it’s great

Norråva, trying out a couple of paddles

Went to Horisonkajak at Norråva and tried out two paddles, the Werner Shuna and Camano ones. Both good paddles, with the smaller blade Camano singing and dancing with me. Ended up buying the Shuna.
