Lapland autumn 2009 – 12th September

I began the day cooking breakfast and making a batch of pinn bröd dough

Teres was keen to help me ;>)

I cooked the breads on the top of my woodburning stove

My neighbours were at their cabin for the day and there grandson was collecting blue berries and threading them onto a grass stem.  Apparently many children do this and them eat the berries later.

We were due to eat food at Anki’s cabin in the afternoon and so we walked there through the forest.

I love this view at any time of year

We cooked sausage and later Anki cooked a meal for us.  Anki used to work as a chef and I always look forward to her cooking!

We went walking after our evening meal and although we saw no birds or other wildlife the autumn colours at sunset made up for it

The following day we drove back to Gallivare for a few days.

  1. Aw, this was a really outstanding post. In theory I’d like to compose like this too – taking time and real effort to make a rational article… but what can I say… I dilly-dally a lot and never seem to get something done.
