Here are a few shots of the areas I frequent here in Uppsala and environs:
In bearable weather we cycle along the river, and there are a couple of stretches of tree-covered path:
There’s also this field where we see deer sometimes (I saw two there today on my ride home)
There’s a tower for bird-watching at one point, and it has a railing so that people don’t fall into the river:
On the other side of the river is a typical Swedish country home – you see this type of house in this exact colour all over the place in Sweden!
Still by the river, but closer to home, there’s a little wharf with a picnic table. Wharf needs post to hold it up:
Uppsala Castle – well, one of the towers at least. It’s built on the high point of Uppsala city centre area, but I haven’t bothered trying to get inside yet:
On another day, stopped to take another photo of that same house, and a rainbow appeared!
That day, Lena and Wiebke were also riding home with me so we all took photos. Lena:
Bulrushes growing by the river close to my house:
Try to figure this one out:
That same post, photographed two weeks after the one above. Yep, that’s snow, AFTER most of it melted:
For those last three pics, Sulagna accompanied me on my walk down to the river and for some distance along it, so we took a photo of her in the snow – her first time in snow! I taught her pretty much everything I know about snow, so she’s well-versed now. She also participated in our lengthy snowball fight a few days later.
