We took a little road trip to Värmland – to explore some of the places where my grandparents family came from. Alas, we stopped mostly and took pictures at artsy places.

Like Lars Lerins museum,

Finnskogs Centrum for a look and a concert of finnskogs music and tales,

Birch bark shoes,

Could be grandmas grandma,

Alma Löv Museum,

Värmlands Museum in Karlstad,

We did, of course, travel through lots of beautiful scenery and landscapes (some in sunshine, some in rain), but it was just too beautiful to take pictures of.

Nice clouds too.

We followed the sun westward.
  

 
The trip went very well (Icelandair is the best), and landed in a dark and rainy Seattle. After a fairly good nights sleep, and fighting off wakefullness, I got up early and took a walk in the darkness of Ballard. The sidewalk gardens were striking in the street lighting.

Now for a cup of java at my favorite oasis in Ballard – Caffe Fiore!
