Finally Summer is here. I'm standing in my kitchen fixing some sandwiches when my friend Filip comes by to pick me up. Today we're gonna do some kayaking. We put our kayaks in the water by  Kanotcenter's head quarters in Södertälje's guest harbour. You can tell that holidays are on by the amount of boats along the piers. At 08.00 am we silently slide away due South towards the Archipelago. First we enter the Hallsfjärden where we make a stop for breakfast in the Öbacken-Bränninge Nature Reserve. The morning has so far given us sun and +25°
C (+77°F) in the air but now a soothing summers rain enters the bay. After finishing our sandwiches the rain has passed and we continue past the Farstanäs Nature Reserve. The boat traffic is minimal and we get into a calm and refreshing mode. Courted by the happy birds we make lunch on the dock of Ytterjärnas peaceful bay. After a relaxing moment we decide to go back to Södertälje. Back home fixing our gear we can state that we have paddled a total of  40 km during the last 9 hours. This was a really nice way to start the summer. Looking forward what more adventures this summer will bring.
