I think we´ve had around five minutes of sunshine today, the rest has been cloudy, very windy and mostly rainy. But I didn´t care today, I went down to Gothenburg and the ocean. I love being by the ocean in a stormy weather. Well it didn´t storm but the winds reached gale anyway.
Before I went home again we visited a place called "The dump". This place was once a shallow bay, probably perfect for small fish to grow up in, but back then they didn´t care about such petty things. The ocean was full of fish and they would last for ever and ever. Anyway, they started to dump dredging spoils from Gothenburgs harbour every time they needed to make it wider and deeper. Back then Gothenburg had some of the biggest shippingyards in the world and they were placed almost in Gothenburg city.
Every district in Gotheburg has a "town square" of its own. This is called The Radio square. All streets around it has names that in some way is connected to a radio.
It´s a nice and quiet neighbourhood.
After a while this shallow bay became vegetated and nowdays it´s a popular place to walk with our dogs and it´s just a minutes walk from a small, but very popular beach. It was also very close to where I lived thirteen years ago, so I went there often. After the walk I and my dogs went to friends of mine having coffee or perhaps dinner :-) :-) I do love that place!
This is swedens biggest harbour for fishing boats. You can barly see the fishing boats in the far back of this photo.
The weather was so bad that there were very little people there. A few dog owners, a couple riding horses and a couple kite flyers. But the winds was a bit to strong for both the kites and the ones flying them :-) :-) :-) We met a hyserically happy labrador, he was so happy that Orvar got worried :-) He didn´t realise that he was much bigger than the labrador :-) :-)
These so called boat houses are really fully equiped cottages to be honest :-) One day the tax office will find out and then they´ll have problems I´m afraid.
Even if I love the ocean and most probably would have lived out on an island outside Gothenburg if I could have afforded it (those houses costs a fortune) I´m so happy to be home by the bog and forest again :-)
Now it´s time for dinner I feel and then a visit out into the cyberspace visiting You all!
Have a great day now!
