The wonderful heat wave just continues to linger at Finland. The temperature stays above 30 celsius degrees. They’ve given a lot of common sense instructions how to keep the not-air-conditioned houses at reasonable temperatures. To keep windows and doors open at night and tightly shut with curtains down by daytime. At Lillan it’s a bit … More Stay Cool at Lillan
Today you could already sense the summer feeling ❤ Yes, a bit chilly but still. The way the sun glimmered on the sea and the gulls shrieked was just so summery. After the long, dark and cold winter it’s more than welcomed feeling. Yep, so be it. And just how wonderful that is!
Ever-changing. Always something new. I’ve seen this view at least a billion times and it never ceases to amaze me. It seizes my heart and soul. It captures something deep in me.

They are always a bit luck dependent – you might see them or then you might not, mostly depending on the mood of the Sun and it’s activity. But one thing that’s for sure are the stars. Not so common a thing … More Star Gazing

The title on the Lillan home page, "little house on the ocean shore" has brought up some discussion. Many of my very well English speaking friends have told me the Baltic Sea to be a sea, not an ocean.

August storm, couple of years ago. After heavy rain Mother Nature served her best in a bit different form. Couldn’t believe my eyes for these beautiful views at Dalsbruk harbor. Have a walk with me and enjoy the scenery! #nofilter
