and now, back to summer here in NY:
on a particularly hot weekend at the end of august
we went camping at the beach on fire island with friends C and M.
apart from the mosquitoes hungry for our blood
it was a lot of fun
setting up camp, picnicking,
watching the sun set over the dunes,
a red moon rise over the water,
and, later, a glow in the east soon followed by the rising sun.

just two pictures, the first one taken on the road
somewhere betweeen bavaria and berlin,
the second one in the blue hour in nuremberg.
the last days in germany before we flew back to ny
where a bit melancholic, and these two pictures describe them very well.
it's been four years now that I last lived in germany
and leaving always makes me realize how much I miss it.

back to august:
after arriving in göteborg we took a tram to saltholmen,
and from there the ferry to the beautiful island of styrsö
where we stayed for two days.
we rode bikes around the island, swam in the sea,
and had great food.
two days was way too short.

going back to work this morning after a three-day-weekend was tough.
it's still summer here, and we did lots of summery things:
we met Mel + husband (visiting from London) for a very nice brunch,
rode our bikes round carroll gardens and red hook,
visited the cloisters and biked down manhattan's west side past hundreds of bbqs,
and rewarded ourselves with drinks and dinner at our favorite bar.
I don't think I have ever lived anywhere with such a long, reliable summer before!
also, I think all weekends should be three days long.

every night at 7pm a stena ferry leaves kiel to arrive in göteborg at 9am the next morning.
at the same time a second ferry makes its way from göteborg to kiel.
the ferries spend the day in one of the two cities.
for me the huge boat has always been part of kiel's cityscape.
every night at around 8pm the ferry passes by the town where my parents live
and I always love seeing it leave the bay.
so this summer we decided we should be on it.
we waved goodbye to my mother standing below us on the quay,
waved to my dad sitting by the water an hour later,
and enjoyed the wind and the sunset on board
before falling asleep at 10 pm to the rhythm of the motor.

the light and the colors were just perfect when I took this picture,
and it came out exactly they way I had hoped.
strange how sometimes it works out so well, and sometimes it totally doesn't.
I still have lots more pictures from our summer vacation to show you,
I'm trying to get back into posting more regularly.
Thanks for stopping by!
