...The lights shining through on you...

More mysterious holidays in Sweden...some say 'socialist!' some say 'no! its pagan!'.  For me, it is a day in the sunshine and no post delivered.
Zok left for to do show dates at some time- the wrong side of morning.
I had a full social day and the sun was out so-
I skated on the Tunnelbana! (Subway) So Brave! Such a RULE BREAKER!
I have a plan now, the plan involves walking on my toe stops whenever officials are able to spot me, then sort of hiding behind a post when I am near the cameras.  I have grown to love the shocked or dirty looks I get by apparently endangering all with my fancy wheeled footwear.

I had to leave the picnic/party/holiday fest early to meet up with some of STRD new skaters.  I did not get a clear answer about the holiday (read - my Swedish is still limited and Finnish well forget about that!).

  All the new (and not so new) skaters met outside the same cemetery we favored last year.  Here is the link so you have a clear idea of how this cemetery is more paths in the forest than skating atop graves (We do not do that!).

I had a lovely day.  The trees are finally blooming and there are (also) mysterious pathways of flowers literally everywhere.
Who plants them?  Perhaps the skogen tomte!

That cemetery skate looks wonderful. Our opportunities for outdoor skating are diminishing with dark days and rain.
