Travel Photo of the Day (July 25)

It’s hot today in London. I wish I was sitting along the water, dipping my toes while reading a book. This photo was taken during a visit to Djurgarden, one of Stockholm’s islands.

      I was getting used to the idea that summer wasn’t going to come. And then it surprised me. Unfortunately I saw that it is supposed to rain next week–not good for the Olympics.

  2. Sweden is so pretty. We went there on vacation a long time ago. Up in the mountains… it was just beautiful.

    Looks like a good spot to lie on your back and relax, maybe drift off a bit… πŸ™‚

    Don’t really want to dip your toes in the Thames, huh? Hope you get to share in some of the Olympic spirit, and not the Olympic headaches.

    • TBM says:

      I think there are places where I can dip my toes in the Thames. I’ll have to look into that. I’m not too affected by the Olympic headaches since I work from home. I feel for the people who have to work and deal with the traffic and such.

    it’s beautiful.
    it’s summer there, right? it’s also hot here…I am hoping for more rain to fall down πŸ™‚

      It is summer in Sweden. I was surprised by how warm it got there. I always think of sweaters when I think of Sweden. I hope you get your rain.

    I say do what I am doing while looking at this wonderful photo you have taken. PRETEND! (smile)


    • TBM says:

      I do that a lot Francine. I stare at photos or remember places and pretend I was still there. That’s one of the best parts of traveling, the memories.
