The Road Trip
Yesterday my mom, sister and I spent the whole day together. We had what my mom called a “road trip” planned. We didn’t go that far, even though we drove a lot. It was a fun day and I had my DSLR along with me so I took the opportunity to play around with taking photos. Here’s what I saw, and did.
We started out by driving out to Stavnäs to find a place to eat lunch.
We stopped at Bageriet and eyed the menu and the nice sandwiches in the display.
We decided this was a good place to eat. It was cosy and there were books all along the walls.
We sat by the window to eat.
After lunch comes… coffee and lunch-dessert. I had a minibiskvi that was filled with dark chocolate
My sister opted for a classic chocolate ball.
Then we took a little walk and saw what we saw, before hopping in the car and continuing our ride.
We stopped along the road to buy fresh raspberries and strawberries
And then continued down the road
We saw a sign for a garage sale, so we had to stop and do some thrifting. I found a great cinnamon shaker.
We made a quick stop at the gas station and my sister and I decided we needed something to nibble on in the car. Peanut M&M’s are the perfect car-nibbling-snack.
I love horses, always have and always will. I made mom stop the car so I could take a picture of two of the many horses we passed along the way.
I also couldn’t help photographing pretty flowers all along the way.
Then we drove to Gustavsberg and peeked into some cute shops. The road blocks were painted in happy colors.
At the iittala outlet I looked at pretty plates, bowls and mugs.
And then it was time for some more coffee but this time we had it to go. I liked the photos on the wall at the café.
After a stop for some groceries, we steered the car home and fired up the grill. I made a pretty salad to go with dinner.
After dinner we had strawberries and mom’s homemade brownies (they’re the best)
Today I’m meeting my two friends B and S and we’re heading out to Fjäderholmarna for another whole-day activity. And the sun is finally out!
