I’ve been having a bit of a Hipstamatic splurge recently. So on Saturday, when Little O, Baby E and I took a two-hour long walk while Husband did some work at home on the apartment renovation, I took some pictures of the city in the autumn sunshine.
We headed to Kungsholmen, one of the islands that make up the centre of the city, and down onto the waterfront path.
We walked along the waterfront until we found a playground, where we stopped for a break.
We continued on our walk around the Kungsholmen waterfront, looking at ducks, boats and the turning leaves on the trees.
Then we got our first glimpse of the castle.
As we walked further, the waterway narrowed right down and we passed an allotment patch. Here in Sweden, people built sweet little houses on their allotment (koloni), grow beautiful flowers, fruit and vegetables and often spend many hours there in the summer months.
We actually then left the city briefly and walked a few metres through the Solna suburb of Stockholm, before turning back into Stockholm and onwards towards the castle.
The castle is not open to the public (it’s a military building) but there are cannons and anchors enough outside to entertain a toddler.
And then it was time to head back towards Karlberg station and on into the city.
Days like this remind me just why I love this city so much.
