2010 06 29 Jubileum 389 år tårta

It’s been a while since I last had a really big birthday party, so I thought… No, just kidding! But I did have strawberry cake for lunch today, and so did a lot of other people. The “birthday child” though was our Town. It celebrated its 389th birthday. What? Never heard of celebrating a 389th birthday before? Well, now you have. You might prefer to call it anniversary rather than birthday, but still – how many 389th anything have you been to??

Today was the hottest day of summer so far. And usually I would not have said that my favourite place to be at noon on a hot summer day is in a crowd of people in the town square. Since I became a blogger, though, I find myself doing many strange things! 

And, in case you wonder – that really was a delicious cake!

lovely and yummy cake, i could have stood being in this crowd just for the cake. i think it is a great idea to celebrate being around that long. our country is not even that old. are those strawberries locally grown or do theyhave to ship them in, in other words can you brow the berries in Sweden? we have strawberrie farms here and they have annual strawberry festivals, since there are usually about 50,000 plus people at these i stay far away. now if i could walk to one like you can i would be there. here nothing is walking distance, car for anything I want to do. keep walking and snapping and blogging, we love it and wait to see what is NEXT

Not sure if the the strawberries on these cakes were all Swedish; but we do grow strawberries here in the summer. More strawberries at my other blog The Island of the Voices also today. ;)

That cake looks amazing, lots of whipped cream, too? But it doesn't look big enough to have fed all those people! Were there several cakes? What a great idea, a city birthday party! Do they have them every year? I find myself doing things that I never would have, just because of blogging! And I've actually gotten a bit too close to danger with thecamera tempting me.

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.

My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
