Midsummer's Eve Overload

We were invited to Johan's mother's house last night to celebrate Midsummer's Eve. I can't remember when I last celebrated it, but it was so nice. We dined al fresco in the garden, took a stroll down to the beach to watch the bonfire, and concluded the evening with a walk in Karen Blixen's garden, which is really a dreamy mix of a forest, a park and a country home,  (there's even cattle!). I'm telling you, at one point I plain forgot I was only 30 minutes from the city.
The bonfire on the beach.

Asparagus and serrano ham. Yum.

Baltic prawns - as they're apparently called in English.

Look at those tiles - aren't they killer? Loads of different hues.

The Oresund.

Johan's mother's house....kidding! It's Karen Blixen's house;O)

Nest boxes in Karen Blixen's garden.
