A massive gift for feeling blue

Today was a rainy day, and occasionally it was raining so heavily that the water flooded the streets and walkways. But there was a pause in the rain after 14:00, and I went for a walk in the Tremanskärr swamps and forests.

I used rubber boots, and it was no problem walking across even the wettest swamps at Tremanskärr. In the open swamp it was rather nice, as the wind kept mosquitoes away, but elsewhere one couldn't escape the little bloodsuckers. I got two dozen of them, but they also got some bites.

On the other hand, there were a lot of blueberries to be eaten, and some wild strawberries, so losing a little bit of blood was no problem. And I got also a lot of photographs.
