The harbor pilot

My trip to scandinavia included a visit with my relatives in Northern Sweden. One of the highlights was going into the home of my great-great-grandfather, which was built on an island off the coast of Luleå. He was a harbor pilot, and because of that, he had some status. His home is now a craft art shop featuring local artworks. His picture still hangs on the wall. It was a great experience being there and thinking of life in those historical times.
