Midsummer Eve at Örenäs castle.
Many cars, guides are waving them to and fro, and eventually end up on a
lawn. Örenäs castle is beautifully situated above the village
Öresund. The lawn in front of the castle is full of Midsummer
celebrating people. The Midsummer pole is dressed and waiting to be brought in and
erected. Goes to the coffee tent. "It looks good", meringue,
strawberries and cream. Sitting down at a table below the terrace. Swedish flags
adorn the flower bed. The pole is carried in and raised to the music. Folk dance
team show what they can. Children, parents, elderly, and wheelchairs form a
ring. Traditional dances, funny frogs, so this is done when, as the
crow about to go ..... . Game leader directs. Those who have got a place on the
terrace has great views of the dance and Öresund. Inside in the castle's
restaurant isit prepared for the herring buffet. Thanks for the dance, at three
o'clock it's over. Drive home and lay my midsummer table.
