A treat in the evening

A lazy day today, Sooz painted the trim and I put up the TV antenna permanently. The high point was when Ole and Annica invited us to go over to Annica's parents, Bo and Gun's house, for a sit in the sauna and a taste of smoked fish caught that morning. We took Ole's boat around the island, and Grant followed with Annica's son, Patrick, in his boat.

We all took a sauna and the boys jumped in the cold water. Ole and I satisfied ourselves with a quick dip. The fish was smoked while we were taking our sauna, and then we all had a taste. It was wonderful. Bo and Gun were great hosts and we heard lots of stores about life in the island fifty years ago. In fact, Gun's grandmother's grandmother was one of the first people to live on Aspö!!

The boys went boating and the grownups drank beer. It was a beautiful evening.
