It’s late Saturday afternoon and in a short while, my son and I are heading to the local market to pick up a few munchies for dinner. We’re having El & Seamus over later and it’s my last night here. Today, we took the ‘Archipelago Tour’ on the SS Stockholm through Stromma tours and it was fantastic.
The ship left the harbor at noon for a 3-hour tour.
A 3-hour tour.
Ha. I crack myself up.
It was a thousand times nicer than I thought it would be. We opted for the brunch tour and were treated to some really fantastic food in a dining lounge with linen tablecloths. I thought we’d be sitting on benches or something and would have to keep coming inside to get out of the cold. Silly me.
But it was a luxury cruise and filled with all kinds of wonderful things to eat – all Swedish and all fantastic.
We went all the way round to Vaxholm (above) and then back again.
I kept going outside although it was cold, because the photo opps were so much better than taking images through the windows of the ship.
And when we pulled back into port at Stockholm, the sun was setting.
It was the best.
This has been just the best trip ever.

I have had the time of my life in this beautiful city. I leave very early tomorrow morning to catch the express train up to the airport north of here and will probably not be posting for several days. Thanks for coming along on the ride with me. I’ll be back here in a little while.
