Luckily, we had packed a picnic since we weren't sure that we'd have to leave the boat so we just changed directions and went for a picnic on Lidingö, the island where our marina is. We drive by many lovely perches in our boat so we decided to find these big rocks that are a perfect place to hang out. We successfully achieved our purpose and had a great day! Tanner was thrilled to be off leash, snooping around the woods and swimming at will. We also went into the water, which was refreshing, eventually, but man, the water is freezing cold this year. Feels best when you get out! But we managed to find comfortable spots on this big, beautiful rock facing the water and the sun. Tanner is like his mama...he likes to lie on a towel in the sunshine! We read, slept, relaxed, swam, played with the dog, and soaked in the real summer feeling of the day. I even got sunburned!
Tonight I feel summer satisfied! A wonderful day outside followed by a delicious dinner at home and a dose of the Olympic Games on TV. Tanner is utterly exhausted and has a sore leg. We're all ready for a good night of sleep. Hope more days like this are in the forecast. It is so refreshing for me and I need to keep filling my tank with light and sunshine before it all goes away in the winter.
