Today was a cloudy and cold day, but at least no rain, so I decided to go fishing at the lake. I haven’t done that for years and had to google how to do the knots when I finally got there. I also took Caspian with me and my brother. After almost 4 hours of fishing I finally got a tiny perch, but at least the weather got really nice and the cats are probably gonna enjoy some fresh fish.
The forest road to the lake
Had to stop for water, straight from the lake and very clean
This scarecrow even fooled me at first
Finally arrived at the lake, it’s always packed with people on hot day
Decided to have a sandwich and hot chocolate before fishing
The midsummer night is according to folklore the most magical and the border between the supernatural world and our is supposed to be at it’s thinnest.There are plenty of myths surrounding the festival. One such myth is that if young people pick 7 flowers at Midsummer and place them under their pillow they will dream of their future spouse. Medical herbs picked on this night were believed to be stronger and were saved for darker months.
Today midsummer is celebrated the closest Friday to the summer solstice. On midsummer everyone leaves the city to jump like a frog around a maypole, eat herring and drink a lot of alcohol.
