B Day

Today is B Day. Since the weather is fantastic (of course) we decided to make a day out of it. This morning we met with Miss Winty and Freddie for coffee and cake at a patissery just opposite the marina.

This does look cosy, doesn't it?





We enjoyed our lunch in a small restaurant on top of a hill, overlooking the most spectacular view.
The lake Dellen was formed by a meteorite impact 2.7 million years ago. It is Swedens 18th largest lake.




Cheers,
Asta

The floating 'lunch room' is just fantastic! How cool! The lake is beautiful, but I don't even want to imagine the size of the meteorite!...

JM said...

P.S. Happy birthday, Asta! Hope you're having a great time! :-)

Asta said...

Thank you JM!

I had a wonderful day.

It must have been a big bang when the meteorite landed. Actually the rocks in the area are called dellenit, and there's an asteroid named 7704 Dellen which was discovered in 1992, also named after the lake.

Cheers,
Asta
