Today, Monika, Willie, and I went to the annual midsummer celebration arranged by the organizations ASA and SWEA, the VASA Order, and some other, in Carderock Park in Maryland. We got there a little late and so we missed the dancing around the May Pole, but we ate well and spent a few very nice hours there. There was also a small group there playing Swedish folk music (including Kerstin, who sits next to me in the picture and who leads the Swedish Song Group). So in summary, a lovely midsummer celebration! On the way home, we passed by a turtle that was crossing the road. I have never seen such big turtle, at least not in the wild – amazing!
