The rain finally cleared and my cold finally gave me a bit of a break, so we got out and into Stockholm and the sun brightened it all up for us.  The city which looked so menacing yesterday under heavy, dark clouds seemed so lighthearted and fun today.

We took one of those “hop-on, hop-off” boat tours around and through the islands, wandered through several ages of Sweden and a world of animals at Skansen; bypassed an event celebrated a round-the-world yacht race, and ended up in Gamla Stan again. But like I say, so much prettier today.
