Vaxholm - Harbour Town of Sweden Revisited

Vaxholm - Harbour Town of Sweden Revisited  


I wrote about our brief visit to a small Swedish harbour Vaxholm, about 60 kms. from Stockholm in this blog on July 21, 2014 during my last visit to Sweden along with my wife Vidya. It may be seen at: www.diplomatictitbits.blogspot.in


It was a pleasure to visit Vaxholm again on July 8, 2018 in the company of my son Naresh’s family and parents of my daughter-in-law Anju, Bimla and Ram Saran. The early morning drive from Uppland Vasby, in the outskirts of
Stockholm, to Vaxholm through lush green suburbs of Tåby and Arninge was pleasant and enjoyable. It was a sunny day. Vaxholm is a 15th century trading town named after the famous defense outpost of Sweden, Vaxholm Castle. Vaxholm is a summer destination with summer homes of the well to do Stockholm citizenry. Of late, many art galleries have been hosted in Vaxholm located in the centre of Stockholm archipelago. Children of Rajni and Vivek in our troupe, Ekam and Onkar, were excited to see small boats and young people making fun in the water. We joined the over enthusiastic crowd to relished scoops of good ice cream, the usual treat on the banks of the harbour on a sunny, before leaving for our afternoon picnic at a camping site in the vicinity of Vaxholm.


Anju had thoughtfully prepared some vegetable patties and good masala tea which we relished on a the waterfront of a small beach. Our visitors, Ram Saran and the family, were all
the more excited as it was a new experience for them. The cool breeze was balmy. It was a good outing in the company of our extended family. The more I see Sweden, the more I tend to think that we are still to go long way in India to clean our waterways and protect and preserve environment.
