Leaving the Archipelago

For me, one of the best parts of the Baltic cruise was getting to see the Stockholm again when we left the city.

I just think it would be so much fun to live on an island near a city as cool as Stockholm.

This particular evening made for a memory that’s one of my favorites. My friend and I decided to skip dinner in the dining room and order room service instead. That way we could sit on our balcony and eat while watching the archipelago float by. Everything was fine until we brought out the salmon. Suddenly, a flock of seagulls came from out of nowhere! We had to go inside to finish that part of dinner, but came out again for dessert.

I can’t recommend this area highly enough. You can see more of the archipelago here and here.

Hope your week’s going well so far.

    Dear Carole, this place is so beautiful that I can hardly find words! Super, lovely place! I wish I could live here, for me, fan of water and everything connected with it, it is the most beautiful place!

  3. Ah, the seagulls. Haha! πŸ˜€

    What a beautiful place. Those islands.
    Seagulls can get a little crazy when hungry.

  5. Beautiful pictures. When I was a kid I always fantasized about somehow living on an island in the center of a major city. It could still happen.

    now that is super cool πŸ™‚

  7. I love the last photo with the sweet dock over the water. I imagine that would be so serene with beautiful views. Are there ferries that motor to the city center from all these little islands regularly?

    • I do too, Jackie. Yes, there are ferries, but you can rent small watercraft too.
      One thing that struck me as a little bit odd: there are privately owned islands, but Sweden’s public access laws allow anyone to enter privately owned land, provided they stay out of view of the owner’s house.
