About the changing world all around us

I have been away for a few days as we had a visit from my mother and father in-law as well as Renny’s sister Trine. Today we were on our own again and decided to take a little drive to a neighboring town about a half hour away from Mariestad. We really didn’t have any special plans, but you see our car is in the shop for repairs and had a new Skoda on loan that we just had to check out.

Its amazing what you can find when you aren’t really expecting anything more than to see what there is to see. Skövde was just full of hidden treasures. Lovely fountains and sculptures, lush green parks and sidewalk cafes, a really fine place to spend a Saturday afternoon.

I loved the look of this sidewalk café outside a classic old building on a cobble stone square. The weather was perfect for a latte or a beer, whatever your preference may be.

In the town square there was this gorgeous statue on the edge of a fountain surrounded by beautiful flower plantings.

And on a side street we found a beautiful park behind an old church. This was a peaceful place to sit and enjoy the fountain and the quiet nature.

The town had a true European flare, with cobble stone streets and beautiful old buildings. It was the perfect place to do nothing, except be on vacation with my family! Drop by RennyBA’s Terella and see what else we have been up to while I have been away!
