Östersund and the county of Jämtland was and still is the main news story from yesterday to today in Sweden. Storm Ivar hit town, all bridges were closed, parts of town were sealed off (1st time since I have been here) and trees were falling down everywhere, power was cut (still 19,000 households are without power) as I'm stuck in Umeå I missed all this, our house survived but a few items have been thrown around our varanda and garden. Being around the mountain region we are used to wind and storms in Östersund but this was out of the ordinary.

Östersund closed off, Fia's work is in the background by the 2nd street light on the left-hand side.

..... seafood restaurants!
I read about it in a newspaper in 2012 that rated it one of the top five seafood restaurants in the world!

On our road trip in August we were lucky to get to the Hive Beach Cafe en route to Weymouth, well good and we were lucky with the weather.

Yes, as you can see someone in our party  (no names mentioned)  had a ham sandwich in one of the worlds best seafood restaurants!

Santa Lucia

Saint Lucia's Day is the church feast day dedicated to Lucia of Syracuse, also known as Saint Lucy, and is observed on 13 December. St. Lucia’s Day is celebrated most commonly in Italy and in Scandinavia. In traditional celebrations, Saint Lucy comes as a young woman with lights and sweets. It is one of the very few saint days observed in Scandinavia. In some forms, a procession is headed by one girl wearing a crown of candles (or lights), while others in the procession hold only a single candle each.

She is off to the vet on Wednesday morning as she has another lump on her chest (size of an egg) she had one about this time last year, it turned out being a fatty lump (lipomas - benign form) hope its the same and nothing more serious and they can take it away easily.
