Allemansr├Ątten, or the Right of Public Access, is one of the unique joys of Sweden. It allows anyone to roam freely in the countryside, swim and travel by boat in someone else’s waters and pick mushrooms and berries in the forest.

The Sun kept shining......

2016 saw us back at Munch's Hideaway with the best Summer weather we've ever had, only a few days with any rain at all & mostly warm & sunny!

Simmesjon was generous again (I don't know why I try other lakes) with plenty of Perch & this lovely Brown Trout taking flies.


Murphy had a great time too....


.....& of course Mrs Munch picked about a hundred-weight of wild berries to make into jam & cordial.


Because the weather was so good we cooked al-fresco on lots of occasions..


I did try to catch a few fish in other lakes such as this one a little north of Ljusdal although I only managed to catch a couple of small Perch.


Unlike a lot of previous summers the moose safaris proved very fruitful sometimes seeing six or seven moose in one evening (can you spot this one in the mist).


 The Murikka pan came out to play this summer......


....& I even got to grips with some plumbing fitting a new wash basin in the bathroom!


Another gratuitous moose pic....


This was a traditional Swedish Forest food, Kolbulle which is pieces of fatty pork fried into a pancake (made with a water batter) & served with Lingon Syllt (jam).


The sunsets were amazing, this is a photo of the Wind Farm that have been built close to Simmesjon.


....& finally just to show that Murphy hasn't given up swimming!
