Fourteen Of Thirty

This lovely island is in the Baltic sea, not far from the capital city.  The Stockholm archipelago is the largest archipelago in Sweden and second largest in the Baltic sea.  The archipelago extends from Stockholm about forty miles to the east.  There are about thirty thousand islands and islets. 
In 1719 this area had about 3,000 inhabitants, mostly fishermen.  Today this archipelago is a popular holiday spot with about 50, 000 vacation cottages, mostly owned by Stockholmers.
Some years back, my husband and I traveled around Sweden with my son and his fiance to meet her family including her wonderful grandmother. Hampton and Kim are now married and expecting their second child in November. Needless to say, we are very excited.
