Stegesund is one of the many islands in the Swedish archipelago. It is close to Stockholm and just across Vaxholm. It can be reached by passenger boat from the capital city or by bus (No. 670) and a boat from Vaxholm. While in Sweden, I frequented this island during springtime to prepare the house for the summer months, and autumn to board up the house and plant the tulips that will be in full bloom come spring and summer. The century-old summer house which has become a temporary abode for me is one of my favourite places on earth. Who wouldn't fall in love with the old charm and cozy vibe of the house which overlooks a body of water and is nestled in the woods? Plus, the owners of the house are such lovely hosts.
Enjoy this montage of the island of Stegesund. And special thanks to Åke, Thure, Joel and their furball Freja.
