It has been quiet on the blogging front for more than a month now. I’ve been out in the Stockholm archipelago two and a half weeks, and have been enjoying a wonderful summer. The weather has been, and still is, wonderful. Around 300C and water temperatures above 20. For about a month now.
A couple of pics from my vacation:
Daughter dressed as a Viking at the History Museum in Stockholm
Here’s the bread she baked
A real size Viking ship
…and a miniature one
Model of a Viking village, and here the batteries ran out. Darn!
 A dragon! Mariatorget, Södermalm.
Stockholm from the heights of Södermalm. A very nice walk.
 Sunset from our summer place (actually the neighbours’, but the same island)
A trip to the outer archipelago

Anyway, back on track now, with some miniatures seeing my brushes. More on that shortly.


  1. Glad you had a good holiday, makes you more in the mood to paint


    1. I'm in a painting mode alright! Finished a couple of figures yesterday.

  2. Looks like a lovely holiday, nice to be able to mix in a bit of history with some family time and relaxation. Cold, wet and wintery down here! Cheers, Paul :-)

    1. It is lovely, and not finished yet.
