A relaxing week on the west coast of Sweden

This summer we decided to spend one week on the west coast, a few hours drive from where we live, in a rented cottage. We spent the week with good friends. For all kids it was a great week filled with fishing, tennis, soccer, miniature golf, day trips and lots of playing. For us grown ups it was a great week to see how much fun the kids had, eat lots of great sea food/fish, cook together, laugh, relax and just enjoy the wonderful scenery. I am so much in love with the Swedish summer – nothing come close ; ). The landscape on the west coast is very different from my surroundings with lots of forests, lakes etc., but I love spending time at the coast. The week gave us sunshine, lots of wind, rain and then some more sunshine – basically a mixed compote ; ). We wished for some more sun but you cannot get everything. All in all it was a really great week. Here some shots from our week.

I have always been very passionate about sailing boats since I was a little girl and started sailing. I can walk around at a pier for hours and just look at all lovely boats.

We took a day trip and a bit of a hike to reach a beautiful spot overlooking Fjällbacka.

Fishing small crabs was great fun for the boys and they spend hours and hours entertaining themselves with this activity.

Evening meal on the pier. Food always tastes better eating outside : )  We took a bit what we could find in the fridge ; )

A salad with mixed lettuce, avocado, tomatos and a fresh dairy free pesto topped with brazil nuts and some bacon, boiled egg etc. can make such a great and simple meal.
