Brunch cruise in Stockholm archipelago

What a day we had picked for our brunch cruise!! The weather was gorgeous, around 23C, sunshine and a breeze.

 The new ride at Grona Lund

After finally finding a parking place on Strandvagen, which isn't easy, we headed to the boat. It's a steamship called Stockholm.
 The Danish Royal ship - Dannebrogen

On the opposite quay was the Danish royal ship, Dannebrogen. We thought it must have already come for the Princess wedding on June 8.
The Danish royals always stays on that boat during Royal parties instead of a hotel or castle.

 My beautiful sister in the ship and you can see the brunch table behind.

As soon as we had left the brunch started. There were all sorts of things, smoked salmon, herrings in all forms and shapes (which I don't eat), sausages, salads, bread, meatballs, chicken and much much more.

 Stockholm is beautiful!

The dessert table was just delicious!! And so it kept on. We were out for 3 hours and all the time Stockholm and the archipelago showed itself from the best side.

 Vaxholm's citadel

If you want to come to Sweden and Stockholm this is the time of year to do so. From mid May until the end of August it's just beautiful, but mostly now when everything is so light green, so many flowers, so many wonderful fragrances.
The beautiful little coast town Vaxholm

Tomorrow it's Mother's Day and the boys are coming over - all 3 of them!
That is very special and usually only happens on Christmas ;-)
And here's, of course, "our" wonderful hotel where we usually stay :-)

Take care everyone and be safe!
