Farstaviken, Värmdö

Another staycation post, on a place where I like to go for a walk but never swim.

Despite the tranquil setting, Farstaviken is one of the most polluted bays in Sweden, thanks to the pollution caused by runoff from the (now closed) porcelain factory.

Residents of the area have been engaging in some community activism to halt the runoff but, so far, to no avail.

It’s all very depressing.
