Summer (2) – Arholma

Arholma, an island in the northern part of Stockholm Archipelago. There are some 50 people living there all year round and perhaps 500 during summer. During summertime you can go by boat from downtown Stockholm, a nice 4,5 hour ride.

There are no cars on Arholma. It’s ever so nice to walk the country lanes and only encounter bicycles or slow moving 3 or 4 wheel open vehicles.

I suppose there are sandy beaches somewhere around, but in this part of the world we prefer the polished granite cliffs instead of the sandy beaches. The cliffs get nicely warm in the sun and are surprisingly comfortable. All very reminiscent of childhood summers.
