“Travels to a Different Time” : 3July1975 : Sundvall, Sweden: Up in the Land of the Midnight Sun

Up early and to the German’s Simca heading North into the land of the Midnight Sun. Bought our breakfast supplies on the way and kept bombing around until 15:00 where we stopped at a lake. The owner of the house invited us to swim and use his chairs facing the lake. We ate lunch in the sun in his comfortable chairs. The water was cool and refreshing but I was dive bombed by a seagull several times. Perhaps it did not like Canadians. A lady in a VW showed us the way to the youth hostel in Sundvall. We had supper and after that I used my press pass to enter a bar and chat with the owner who bought us some beer. We stayed until 01:00 and it was still light outside!
