From my Sweden trip to Smögen


                                 Smögen is a beautiful small village with breath taking views. 
                                               Located in Västra Götaland County, Sweden 
                                 It is one of the liveliest "summer towns" of the Swedish west coast. 


Getterön - Naturum... a great place for bird watchers


Getterön is one of Northern Europe´s fantastic bird sites,
located  about 2 km north of the centre of Varberg,

This life is mine ...is yours...


“This life is yours. 
Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well. 
Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly. 
Take the power to walk in the forest and be a part of nature. 
Take the power to control your own life. 
No one else can do it for you. 
Take the power to make your life happy.”

Visiting Point Pelee National Park, Leamington


If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, 
if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, 
if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, 
rejoice,  for your soul is alive.
