Svärdsjö and singalong

A glass of wine before we left
 What a fantastic weekend we have had. We went to Svärdsjö in Dalarna to visit Gunilla and Per.

Me and Hasse had chairs with us. This was one hour before the show. When it started all the places behind us were occupied
They had bought tickets and treated us with them - THANK YOU! - to singalong with Lasse Berghagen. You out of Sweden might not be familiar with Lasse Berghagen? He was the singalong leader for many years at Skansen. And we all think, in our family, that he has been the best.

Some of the people.
Anyway he comes from Svärdsjö and wanted to do a singalong there and they anticipated around 1500 people. And along came 4-4500!! Can you imagine the choir we were? We had so much fun. He had also invited artists like a rockabilly group, Lisa Miskovsky and several more.
And some more but soon it was even more.
The weather, who hasn't been great this summer, was perfect. Sunshine, some clouds and warm.
The singalong was over 2 hours long but didn't feel that at all.
We happily sang along and had fun talking to everyone around us (at least I did). I can tell you that this is the closest to house concerts we have. And this time we were, as I said, in luck with the weather. It's not the same if it's raining I can tell you.

After the show we went back home to Gunilla and Per's place which is just gorgeous with a view to die for. They had bought fillet of beef from a farmer nearby and oh my God that was good. To that they had grilled asparagus and tomatoes and was served with potatoe slices and two sauces. So good!
Late night
 After dessert which was a lime pie with strawberries and whipped cream, yummie we went inside around 11PM. Not because it was cold or dark but because the mosqitos came out.

After a good nights sleep we had breakfast outside overlooking the lake. What a good way to start the day!

We started back home and came home around lunchtime which was perfect.

A big THANK YOU to Gunilla and Per for their hospitality and for treating us. Love you!

On Thursday I'm off to Malmo and I hope the weather will be as good. 

Take care and have a great time whether on vacation or working.
