Todays pictures are from ”Hamra Sluss” just south of Linköping, along ”Kinda Kanal”. This part of the canal is from late 19:th century and is still used in the summertime. The doors in the lock are still opend by hand. Must remember to go back here when the summer has arrived…

Swedish Smalltowns – Vadstena

Vadstena in Östergötland is one of my favorites. I love to walk around in the central parts of the town with my camera. Most of the beautiful houses are from the 16th, 17th and 18th century. The town has a population of about 5.500 and is most known for it´s monastery and castle.

Vadstena[ The Street Picture ]

Just as I started my walk through the streets this time, it started to snow. Big snow flakes. Really nice…but hard go get on a picture – but if you look close…

As I walk, the shops are closing for the day – it´s Saturday afternoon the 30th of december. The street lights will soon be lit up and give that nice feeling I really like. A lot of people are still wandering around the town – even though the shops are closed. As I take pictures, a family asks me to take a picture of them with their phone.

Vadstena-4[ The Name of the Town ]

I try to get a cup of coffee at the Old Café, but it´s full at the moment. I have to continue my photowalk, and that is not a problem. The snow is beautifully falling down and the whole town is like postcard.

Vadstena-3[ The Historic Picture ]

There are a lot of Swedish history in Vadstena. The signs on the “historic picture” shows the way…

Vadstena-2[ The Cup of Coffee ]

Finally there was a free table at the Old Café (the house on the right in the picture). My glasses went completely white as I got in to the Café. The coffee was served in small cups on a plate – just the way I like it. Nice.

Vadstena-5[ The Attraction Picture ]

As I walk toward the car I see the castle in the distance. The snow has stopped falling now. I head back home to prepare for the new year…
