Sad News


Last weekend, my grandfather passed away. He became 88 years old and died after being hospitalized for a broken hip and a some broken ribs. I was shocked by this tragic news. At the same time I was lucky to meet him one last time the last summer. And I got his beautiful pipe as a gift, as I wrote some weeks ago. I am very satisfied that I met him one last time. I hope he will rest in peace, together with my grandmother.

The second day in Varberg


Sorry that I forgot the second day in Varberg, but here it comes. My father and I was taking a walk and we took a great second bath near the Stronghold at the cliffs again. I took some photos of the view of the Stronghold and all the nice little details I liked. During the evening, I took a gourmet pizza from a real stone oven at a little restaurant near the haven. It was actually really tasty.

With my father in Varberg


Last year I visited my fathers hometown Varberg. We rent a room in a comfortable little inn. This year we returned to the same inn in Varberg. I collected some photos I’ve taken today.

Before entering the inn, we went to my grandfather. He is now 88 years old but he still lives in the cute wooden house he has built for himself. The nature and weather around us was amazing and he’s house was full with his paintings, stache and projects, and off course his old beautiful furniture and decorative things. There was quite messy, but in a quite coozy and comfortable way. He gave me this pipe, which is very old and lacks any similar copy.

So we said goodbuy to grandfather, arrived to the inn. Then we went to the cliffs nearby the big stronghold of Varberg and took a bath in the sea of Kattegat, There were a lot of people, including beautiful women in bikinis, but the water was pretty cold. However I got used to it and went in the water two times. Then we ate at a little food place nearby, in the forest.

Tomorrow I will take photos of Varberg and the great Stronghold and everything there is, but this evening, I will just share the pictures I’ve taken today, at my Grandfathers place in the countryside. Enjoy!

My grandfather have been out sailing a lot during his years. And he also loves to paint, both paintings and colorizing his birdhouses. You will get to see them shortly.

My grandfather has become very old and a bit confused lately. He now has home service looking over him and my father, aunts and uncles are shopping food for him. But after all, he is 88 years old. He has a walker and moves slowly but he is still quite funny and clear in his head, with a lot of memories to tell about.
