The night before Midsummer Eve showed a beautiful sky but we also realized that the pink color meant a changing weather, from sun to rain. And we woke up to a wet landscape....
But that didn't stop us from taking our bikes after lunch and go to the The Church Town where they have a traditional way of celebrating Midsummer every year. We came a little bit to late so we missed the dance around the maypole. But we stood under the umbrella and enjoyed some young musicians and singers performing ballads and jazz.
The rain decreased and we strolled around among the small alleys and watched the houses that a day like this were visited by their owners with families and friends. They are like small apartments and sometimes it happens that they are for sale.
The atmosphere was very jolly and we stopped and listen to this group of fiddlers playing violin and accordion.
I'm not very interested in cars but I must say that I almost fell in love with this little red one and with that environment I couldn't resist taking this photo. After that we had to get home to prepare the dinner before our friends and their children would come.
I don't know if we stayed in the Church Town too long or if I had planed for too much food but when the guests arrived they had to assist with the last things. But we have wonderful friends and they were glad to help us. I wish I had taken a photo of the whole smorgasbord but there was no time for that. I just had a photo from the day after when we had lunch and ate residues. At midsummer we usually have different kind of pickled herring, potato, salmon, shrimp and barbecue meet.
We had a great evening and I was very tired at midnight. I felt pleased that I didn't have to go out and pick seven different flowers to put under my pillow. Which we did when we were younger to dream about the man we were going to marry....
I'm so pleased that I'm already married with my Hubby that stayed up this night and waited for our teenagers to come home.
