The Feather Islands
During the school holidays, the kids and I went to Fjäderholmarna —
Or in English, The Feather Islands.
As the boat left Stockholm, we passed the city’s most famous crane
Painted as a giraffe. (It’s near the funfair.)
After half an hour, we arrived on the island
And visited a local café.
We followed the sign and started off the day with ice cream…
The island has a strong tradition of fishing,
And one of the boathouses was decorated
With the fearsome skulls of pike.
My two small adventurers
Discovered many places to explore.
We visited the local glassblower
And admired a work in progress,
Glowing like a jewel.
Tired and happy, we returned home on the boat
Under a dramatic sky.
