Wednesday to Friday on the water around Lurö, Sweden

I started as usual from Ekenäs port, this time in a lovely weather.

There I found a nice little cove with a clear view to the east, I have never been here before.

The orange dots are for it to be easier to follow the paths of the island

It was a bath every day, still warm in the water, 17-18º C

And I finally got a picture of a Sea Eagle, a little awkward to take a picture of these in a short distance. They have eyes like a hawk.. 🙂

Visit to Vänern

Today we made ​​a visit to my brother’s summer cottage at “Öckenviken” Vänern.
Our dog is a mix of Landseer and Leonberger, in other words, a dog who is very happy in the water.
One fun thing is that Molly is constantly trying to rescue people who are swimming. She swims straight towards the person to be rescued, then she turns around, then it’s just grabbing the collar or coat on her. If you drop the grip, she stops. No pictures, but I´n gonna film it next time.

Strange dog. 🙂
