Dear Cruisers,

Here I am again! I haven’t reported for two days! What a scandal! *giggles*

Let me tell you all (almost, not the juicy details) about it….

The red Rose above is a Rose at the farm, a truly beautyful one, that is said to be named after Ingrid Bergman, butt I’m not sure.

First of all, we went to Sylvis Döttrar to pick up Mr Lifecruisers jacket. remember the one that got red paint on it? Well, it turned out that they got it cleaned! You can hardly see it, the only left is some very small red spots. Very good since it is a special jacket, so Mr Lifecruiser got very happy :-)

Friday I had my two sisters, brother-in-law and nieces coming over to FÃ¥rö where we are, so we had to show them around a bit – as much as we could in half a day…

First we went to the rauk (seastack) area, which is known as one of Europes biggest actually. It’s bloody marvellous as the English men should have said! Digerhuvud is the biggest -3,5 km – Swedens biggest.


Langhammars have some very cool formations too and some of them are as tall as 8 meter!


There is one rauk that is more known by it’s name here in Sweden – it stands in the south of Gotland – Hoburgen or Hoburgsgubben as it’s called since it looks like a gubbe (old man). When we went there last year I was really disappointed because that’s just NOTHING comparing to FÃ¥rö’s raukar!!!

The coast at both Fårö and Gotland has a lot of limestone.


Then we went to the Strandskogen Café again to eat, we were hungry! They’re so nice to us, serving us food despite the fact that we came there late (they close at six normally) at we were 9 persons! And on top of that, they gave us a little Tapas (not on their menu) while we were waiting. That’s what I call excellent service.

We had an excellent dinner – no photos as usual because my hungry family throw ourselves at the food at once *giggles*

…and then just went down to the beach for a short moment before they had to leave us and drive home to their rented cottage. My oldest sister has been ill, so she can’t do too much at one day.

This was my Saturday Photo Hunt picture I took at the Sudersands Beach, butt never published:

When we came back to the farm, Mr Lifecruisers daughter Jane and the Norwegians (renting at the farm every year) daughter Kari wanted us to come and party with them, which we did at their caravan. We had a lot of fun and another renter and her daughter joined us too.

The bar at Kutens Bensin, Fårö.

We got so cheered up that we took a taxi cab, (the islands only taxi) to a place a couple kilometer away that’s called Kuten’s Bensin, with the fifties style – a lot of old things the owner has collected. He is a James Dean-fan. It’s an old gas station that is turned into a Rock club playing old vinyl LP and often with live bands.

The loft above the bar at Kutens Bensin, Fårö.

The whole place is full of old things, both inside and outside actually, butt since it was dark I couldn’t get any pictures from the outside. Those ones from Kutens Bensin is only taken with my Nokia cellphone.

Mr Lifecruisers daughter Jane got a new hairstyle too:


Still, it was something missing to make it into art:


Actually, she woke up with the plastic cup still and branches still in her hair the day after that! *giggles*

This night it was only a few persons there because there were no band playing, so Mr Lifecruiser went up on the stage to play on the piano and boy, he got us speeding up the party tempo! In Swedish we say: fullt ös! (Like full speed) He rocked! Playing Boogie’s so his fingers is sored now!


Need I say that it was very appreciated? Everybody started to dance and having real fun. We stayed there until they closed around three o’clock in the morning, having a blast!

…and that’s why you didn’t get any post yesterday from me. Yes, I have to confess, I had a terrible, terrible hang-over from all the red wine we drank… I didn’t get up from bed until one o’clock pm not feeling at all as cheered up as the night before… How strange… *giggles*

I know that I shouldn’t drink red wine, butt how easy is it to stay away from it when it’s summer and party-time…?

So yesterday evening were a quiet evening, first we sat out and talked with the farmer and the Norwegians and then we went to our own cinema – Mr Lifecruiser’s computer and Kari’s DVD film “The Never Ending Story 1″.

Just when we were about to start the film, some one very well known by us cruisers phoned!!! Guess who?????

Tor! He was with Renny in Mariestad and just wanted to chat with us – and maybe check that our meeting is still on – Sunday Tor & Anna will come to FÃ¥rö for a couple of days! We’ll have a blast!

How great that we cruiser get to meet both here and there!

When that ended at midnight we were totally blown out like candles.

*Poff & Gone*

Tomorrow they promise some real good summer weather, so we’ll actually make it to beach hopefully!!!! Keep your fingers crossed for us. They also say that it won’t last… Bah! Pessimists… *giggles*

Feeling right at home with the fossils… *giggles*

    Your photo hunter shot is fabulous. So tall and skinny! LOL

    Rauk looks beautiful. I love the third photo you posted in that section. It looks like a gigantic termite mound!

    It looks like you are having a great time seeing some very scenic sites and even entertaining the crowds – well Mr. L that is for that one. I hope his fingers feel better soon.

    Have fun! Life is for living. :)

    Lifecruiser said:

    Renny, this was not the Hoburgsgubben, this was the LAnghammars rauk, the Hoburgsgubben is NOTHING comparing to this :-)

    OH, and my humblest Smoozer thanks for the award!

    Lifecruiser said:

    Ev, I use a program called Watermark Factory which you can find at, but earlier I did this through Adobe Photoshop.
