Look! Can you believe Stockholm is literally on the other side of the tree?
OK. That’s a teeny bit of an exaggeration: you can see the city from this park but, Nyckelviken is actually a 10 minute drive from the city. Back when we were still living in the city, it was one of my favorite quick-countryside fixes. This morning, Henry, our puppy, stopped in for our morning walk after dropping the kids off at school.
Nyckelviken is a park for walks, talks, picnics, weddings, weekend coffees, parties in the Manor House or in the guest barn-like hut, coffee break hut, photos, Christmas Smorgasbords, Midsummer Dances, pony rides (both self-guided and just a Sunday-tests), and more (note: ponies are not stuffed animals and are SO stubborn) — you can even buy fresh eggs at the little farm where you can see the chickens run, watch the pigs roll, count bunnies and today, see baby lambs before continuing strolling past the red barns down to a little beach and watch the Stockholm-archipelago traffic.
Spring at Nyckelviken: lambs, piglets, ponies, chicken, cattle and bunnies
Until we meet again, I hope you too are able to throw a little caution to the wind this weekend! Run and be free!
