Tullinge Nature Reserve

We went to try to find the Tullinge car show - after last years attempts it seemed worth a bit of driving around, but there were less classics in the area, so we gave up and stopped for lunch at a nearby nature reserve.

Edsberg Konsthuset

Perched on a rock nearby Edsberg Slott is an arthouse - there were Terracotta Women inside, which was a disturbing display, but powerful.

Inside the mill things have been left to be taken over by spiders and flies, giving some impressive looking windows.

Street cars fest summer show

After last years gathering at Barkaby I was hoping for another large outdoor show, but it was more like the indoor show with a few cars in the car park.

ICE at the Street Cars Fest

As you would expect at a Street Car Festival there was plenty of ICE on show, though I'm not sure that I could see my way to dedicating the whole of my boot to such a system some of these things sound a lot better than the rattly over driven things you hear screeching around the ring road on a Friday night.

Sollentuna beach

Not far from our new flat is a beach. By a lake this has a number of the facilities you'd expect to find at a seaside.
