corner view - beach - stockholm





This weeks theme was a hard one. As I mentioned last week Stockholm is surrounded by water. It's also comparatively clean and there are a lot of public bathing places in the city centre and in the suburbs. But when I think about beaches I think about the ocean, salty waves and endless walks in the sand. Stockholm has a beautiful archipelago where you can find small sand beaches but most beaches in Stockholm look like this one, a 10 minutes walk from my home. As you can see, this june night the beach was pretty deserted. Basically just me and the duck.

Check out Spain Daily for the links to beaches from all over the world.

  13. the pier looks lovely. great that you have such beaches in the city! in berlin one has to take the train to the suburbs or the surrounding country-side to actually swim in a lake (which is not too bad, so i won't complain...).

  19. There is a calm and intimacy in smaller bodies of water, don't you think? ...and actually, most of the time I prefer a little tree lined creek to a massive ocean. Though they both have such great qualities...Thank you for sharing your view!
