Årstabron or the Årsta Bridge has kept me company nearly every weekday the last couple of years. I’m extremely lucky because this gorgeous view greets me everyday at work 🙂 The bridge  spans part of Lake Mälaren in southern Stockholm. Over the course of the year, the lake changes with the seasons – sometimes a brilliant blue in the summer sun, at times a ghostly white in the snow, freezing over to solid rock in the winter, looking like a cracked mirror as spring starts to warm it up, and on special occasions offering a simple backdrop for a resplendent rainbow. The bridge stands by loyally in every season, always part of the landscape, always part of my day at work.

In response to this week’s prompt at The Daily Post. There’s more from this category on Sunny District. Have a happy weekend!


Last biking day

I guess it’s about time that we officially call it a day on biking season for this year. Daylight saving is on since Sunday. It’s starting to get pretty dark by late afternoon already. Autumn is steadily giving way, and as goes the popular saying these days, ‘Winter is coming’!

Last weekend we went biking around the forest and had a great time. The forest is alive with vivid colors and we were lucky to get some warm sunshine too. The mister & I both bought new bikes this summer. (In fact, this is my first bike ever, but more on that later.) Biking around with him has been one of my favorite activities past few months. So much fun to pedal away aimlessly, simply taking in the sights, discovering new routes, stopping wherever we feel like, and then off we go again. What was your favorite pastime this summer?
