Dale and I recently went canoeing around Stockholm! Well, not that recently anymore. We went the day before my Mom arrived but I forgot to write this post before I wrote about her visit so here we are. Anyhow, we were originally going to go kayaking but when we arrived to the kayak rental shop we learned you need to make reservations at least two weeks in advance. With the weather so iffy here I would never want to make a reservation for an outdoor activity in advance. So, on to plan B, a canoe rental shop on Djurgården.
We only rented the canoe for one hour but we were having so much fun we stayed out there for hours. We wanted to go around the whole island but after we realized how long we had already be gone when we were only a quarter of the way around we turned back.
The weather was perfect and it was very calming to slowly watch the city life turn so quickly into the wilderness. I am still always astounded how quickly you are in the wilderness in the capital of the country.
I'm a pretty good canoer but I did spend a good portion of the trip in the position depicted above. What can I say, I like taking in the view!
It was also fun watching all the different boats go by. Dale and I really liked this one.
If you have a sunny day in Stockholm, I highly recommend getting out on the water!
Love Always,
