A temporary solution for my Frostgrape vine. But now it at least gets some sunshine.
The wind is howling and the rain is pouring down. Not entirely true to be honest, but it looks better when writing it :-) But we do have a strong wind and the rain comes and goes in showers or as misty drizzle. No matter how the rain falls I get soaked and cold when going outside. But outside I had to go today. My goal was to drive to the beautiful town Lidköping.
Even I would have no problems passing around that gate! They should naturally have barbed wire on the sides too!
My camera had arrived You see. It turned out it had arrived already on Wednesday but since everyone in the store thought someone already had phoned me no one did :-) So Yesterday afternoon a Young very happy and slightly laughing girl phoned me to say that the camera had arrived and that every one there thought that someone already had phoned me :-) :-) :-)
And the lake just goes on and on and on........
So off I went this morning to fetch my new camera. I went early since it took some time the last time I was there. There was a bit of problem this time too since no one seemed to know what paper I should sign. You know the troubles I had with that membership card? I had gotten the papers for the card I shouldn´t have in my mail and didn´t dare to do anything with it until I knew for sure that they had the right papers in the store. While I was waiting for everything to be ok I looked at the DVD’s they were selling. So I came home with two of them too :-) “Alice in Wonderland” and “The Proposal” with Sandra Bullock.
I promised some more photo´s from Lidköping the last time and I got some down by the lake Vänern. I drove to a small Marina that I know of. It was just like when I had my sailboat but without one very important thing! The scents from a salty ocean. Seagulls however flew above my head most of the time :-)Vänern is Sweden’s biggest and Europe’s third biggest lake. Nothing compared to the big ones in Northern America though.
This is just by the harbour close to the city.I think the buildings You can see behind the bridge once belonged to the porcelain factory (Rörstrands) that was here not to many years ago.
But now I´m waiting for the battery to get charged before I can test it. It seems one can do a zillion things with it and I would be surprised if I even got to learn half of it :-) :-) :-) So during my waiting I´ll have a cup of tea and after that I´ll look at the European Athletic championship. We Swedes doesn´t do especially well this year, nor does the Danes, Norwegians or Finns either I´m afraid.
Have a great day now!
My new camera! Like most things I have it must get a name :-) But I can´t decide that before I´ve properly have met and used it :-)
