Checked out some property outside of Lit (Jämtland County) today. Good fishing waters nearby etc. In the end it wasn´t for me but some day I will locate the place of my dreams. They had this on their land, another artistic interpretation of the Great Lake Monster. You have little things like this all over the place in these parts.

Good day.

The final concert of the last proper version of Rainbow performed their last ever show in Esbjerg, Denmark on May 31 1997. It was the end of an era and “Stranger In Us All” (1995) is still the last studio album from Ritchie Blackmore performing rock. I have a lot of good memories from those days, still have this on display in my home. Note the Christmas card from Blackmore down to the right (pretty cool to get one I would say). Of course I still had the old DEEP PURPLE FOREVER club going at the time.

I guess I am feeling a bit nostalgic today.

Took this snapshot down by the Great Lake (Storsjön) in Östersund (Jämtland County) today. They have built a few fortresses of ice for the kids and on this you can see Storsie (the Great Lake Monster) check the visitors out. I can appreciate the fact that they put so much love into a project like this.

Every kid around here will be exposed to this mystery very early on.

Östersund down by the lake today. Hundreds of people will enjoy themselves down there when they have a day off. Good to see.

Glad I brought the camera with me today.

Östersund Railway Station today. I always had a soft spot for this place. I used to work down there a couple of hours a day many years ago when I was working at the Post Office. I have spent countless of hours on trains on my way to seeing rock concerts and meeting rock stars over the years. Always nice to come back to this place though.

I will always be happy in these parts.

We rarely see the Sun in my neck of the woods during the Winter. Here is a snapshot from the Harbor of Östersund taken today. This explains why Swedes tend to spend a lot of time outdoors during the Summer. Many owns a cottage in the Countryside.

This Winter has been quite strange though. Something is up…

Bit of news regarding the blog today. This post is No. 3,002 on this blog, so that is well worth a mention I think.

Still enjoy it too.
