Info about Swedens National Day! June 6th is Swedens National Day and a general flag day in Sweden. However it is only in recent years we have begun to celebrate our National Day a bit more in Sweden.
The red building behind the water pump has exactly 92 white stones on it, although the stones look more grey today. Each stone represent the 92 members of the Swedish nobility who were decapitated and hanged between November 7-10 in 1520 by Danish King Christian II. An incident also known as the Stockholm Bloodbath or Stockholm Massacre.
Church On Spilled Blood in St. Petersburg, Russia. Which was my second destination on my recent cruise.
The first stop on my cruise was Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. It was a very beautiful and picturesque city indeed! We spent our time in Old Town in Tallinn. And in the photo I am standing with my ice cream at the Town Square in Old Town of Tallinn, Estonia.

I will start off my Cruise Week Theme here with some photos of the ship I travelled with, Vision Of The Seas. Now I had only been on 2 night cruises before so this 4 night cruise was a new experience for me. And it became a very pleasant experience indeed!

Flying art: Lisen and I are housesitting at my mums. So earlier today I went outside to see if I could find anything fun to take photos of in her garden. And I found flying art!

I recently visited a lovely market called Tosia Bonnadan - Crazy Farmers Day in my neighbour town Ronneby in Sweden. Ronneby is about 30 kilometres from Karlskrona where I live. And it was a beautiful photogenic day so of course I snapped some shots while I was there. :p
