Forest and Midsummer

It has been far too much lately to plan anything special to do for midsummer, but one sure way to enjoy it, is to be surrounded by nature. A summerhouse with happily babysitting grandparents makes the choice easy. Normally I love the beach and the sea by the summerhouse but this time we’ve spent more time in the forest. Forests offer so much for all ages, plants to explore, sticks to carry, rocks to climb and a place for the soul to rest. All this usually ends up with well sleeping kids and a relaxed mum. Happy Midsummer!

What do you do for Midsummer? Where do you charge your batteries?




  1. It’s so humid over in Singapore! Most times are spent at the pool, just chilling. Or at a library to escape from the heat. 🙂

    1. …library is never a bad thing, regardless the reason for going there 🙂

  2. Sounds lovely! Happy midsummer! 🙂

  3. Looks like a magical place to explore and recharge!

    1. It is, great timing this time too!

  4. I don’t usually take a special trip for midsummer, but I really like the idea of visiting a forest – all that shade would be good when it’s hot. The shade and dappled light in forests is so inspiring:)

    1. There is something calming and inspiring about it!

  5. We once spent midsummer in Helsinki – that was magical. Wish we could do that again.

    1. Maybe next year? 🙂

      1. School holidays mess that one up – but hopefully some time!!
