Varying Countryside

We went for a drive yesterday late afternoon, no particular destination.
First we drove east to Bäckaskog, then we "found" the Nature Reservation Tosteberga (directly on the ocean) and went for a short walk. We had the dogs with us, and because there are too many rabbits hopping around we had to turn back to the car.
The dogs are getting crazy with all those rabbits and it's no fun to be dragged around on the leash...
We decided to continue along the coast and visited the harbor of Landön... that's little north-east of Åhus. What a gorgeaus place!!! So many birds, all over!

What a gorgeaus part of Sweden! We are so fortunate to be able to live here. Can't wait to explore the close neighborhood on horseback.

Here are a couple of photos I took on the drive...

  1. So glad that you found your little piece of looks beautiful! :o) Good Night!

  2. Thank you for letting us join you on your travels. Such beauty! It sounds like you are loving Sweden.

  3. What beautiful countryside!! Beautiful photos! I like the pheasant...actually I like them all. I don't know how you can keep not going for a ride. I would be up on my nobel steed and riding hither and yon if it were me!!...debbie

  4. What a beautiful place to live! Very pretty photos!!!!!

    I duggest that you take the dogs back to the place with the rabbits only this time take some cheese or other wonderful treat. Bring them to a sit-stay or walk with a treat. Change their attention to you - not the other critters. They will stop pulling if consistantly rewarded. Also important to keep a light touch on the leash so they don't feel you tense...probably all the stuff you do with a horse. Well, not the cheese of course. :-)

  5. What a beautiful place to live. I love the countryside in your photos. The horses is a nice one too!

  6. i have to know - are there lots of volvos up there? my favorite car was a volvo.

    boxy but good.

    p.s. how do the swedish people say IKEA? cuz we say it different than the germans.

  7. how wonderful to set off for a drive with no destination, just to discover whatever may be in that moment. beautiful photos, thanks for sharing these

  8. You had a fun day! When you go for a drive with no particular destination in mind you can find some very interesting things and it's especially fun when you are exploring a new place. You saw such a nice variety of sights. Beautiful photos.
