House news!

Yes, I forgot to mention in my last post that we finally found a house!
We'll rent from 1st of June and hope to be able to move the last few days of May.
It's luckily not far from here, just a 20min drive south.
We'll be living near Åhus, that nice little town directly on the coast where they have the worlds best Ice Cream during the summer which is sold at the cute town square!

The house itself is typical swedish, red with white.
We'll have a big garden, a big garage and a huge guest cabin.
I cannot offer any photos yet, but that will come of course.
We'll meet the owners tomorrow or Wednesday and the contract will hopefully be signed by the end of this week.

Can anyone help me out on this bird?
Is it a wheatear? (Steinschmätzer in german and Stenskvätta in swedish..)


  1. I don't know the bird but that is great news on a house!

    Also that is a fabulous picture in your heading...just incredible!

  2. Ahus? We visited there on a cruise in 8/08. Loved it! Congrats on the house.

    Sorry, I can't help you with the wee birdie identification.

  3. Congratulations! you must be so happy to have found a new home. Many blessings to all of you.


  4. Can't help you with the bird, but I like how you captured the sun backlighting the scene. Also really like your banner. Good luck with the new house - look forward to seeing some pics, and also of the town.
