Quando ero bambina, ogni estate passavo dalla mia nonna a Gdynia (al mare) e sempre amavo guardare i batelli a bocca aperta :))
Grazie per avermi ricordato quei tempi :-0

Looks like the "Big Boys" are summering in your area. They are amazing.

We had some bad weather this morning. Two ferries collided near the harbour in Nynäshamn.

Oh wow, I would love to take a peek inside those yachts. Must be fabulous. Have you ever been in one?

Congratulations on a well-deserved award!

Congratulations on the award. Well deserved for sharing a daily lifestyle with those of us who are land locked and can only dream of a life by the sea.

It is nice to see such a deserving blog receive this award!

To the ships: they are incredibly huge. I remember some years back in Ft. Lauderdale that to fill one of the super yachts with gasoline cost $40-50,000!

I'm sure the price is much higher now.

But it would be fun to travel around the world on one...

Congratulations from Greece too, for the quality of your blog!

We come from sister towns-I mean Livorno and Thessaloniki, where I was born and lived since two years ago.
This photo reminds me of my city...
