If this is Sweden, Tom, then where is the snow?

Tom Wilson: At this time, probably still about a meter deep in Lulleå!

Well you've taught me something today Tom, never knew about that lake before
Tom Wilson: Sorry to mislead you Chris, Hjo is actually on the second biggest lake - very close to the biggest. Lake Vättern is also very big and the water is so pure you can drink it safely from the lake! It is the biggest body of drinkable water in Europe.
These houses have great charm Tom
Tom Wilson: They have indeed, Bill.
Quite an austere looking place Tom!
Tom Wilson: Not really, Richard - the pic gives the wrong impression - this was out of season.
This reminds me of anywhere in Atlantic Canada.
Tom Wilson: Lots of connections between the two, I think, Mary.
I suspect Maureen and I would enjoy a stay in one of these.
Tom Wilson: I'm sure you would, Brian - I've had other views of the lake, and of Hjo, e.g., this one: http://tomwilson.shutterchance.com/image/2013/10/06/hjo-panorama--1/
