Saturday day trip

P1030060

On Saturday DH and I went to Hvaler, a 2 hours drive south from where we live, to visit DH’s aunt.
Hvaler is a cluster of small islands, now connected to the main land by bridges and an underwater tunnel.

This is DH’s summer paradise - the house where his mother grew up and his aunt is now spending the summer months.

This is an old farm that has been in the family at least 4 generations.

Here you see a corner of the barn, where the outhouse also is situated.

We got wonderful food - here DH is carrying warm bread rolls and fresh coffee.

The property is filled with lovely flowers - DH’s aunt has green fingers indeed !

The air was filled with the lovely scent of jasmine - reminds me of my young years and my favourite soap from back then.

The old house, the barn, the flowers, the sun and the lovely day - beautiful.

Not to forget - stitching in the sun !
Never leave home without some handwork  in the tote :-)
