We continue to be extremely lucky with the weather! It is hot and sunny again today. We had a barbecue at Dennis and Peter's host family last evening. It was a beautiful night by the lake. We were comforted to know that even in Sweden they have mosquitoes. The team met this morning for canoeing with our host families at a lake in town. We left from a scout camp and paddled to a quiet spot on the lake. We enjoyed a cookout of hotdogs, sausages and potato salad which the team even helped to cook. The team commented more than once that it just like being back in Ontario or Minnesota...(but probably not North Dakota!) We were able to swim and enjoy the sun. Except for the snake Beth saw, we remained safe from Swedish wildlife. After we returned the canoes back to the scout camp, we were able to spend some quality time relaxing with our host families. The team continues to be amazed by this great experience and the kindness of all of the rotarians and their families. Osby and surroundings has been a great place to visit. It is sad to leave our host families but more
