Friday Morning

It's been a jam-packed few days. First, we did indeed go boating with Olle and Annika and we had a super day. They took us to the little island of Alskär ("Alder island"), an uninhabited little rock of a place with a great stone harbor and lots of places to climb and explore. They laid out a super Swedish lunch and we relaxed, all alone in our little world, on a perfectly sunny day, all afternoon. To call it blissful is an understatement.

Lots of pictures from that afternoon are on the webgallery. It was truly special.

Yesterday, we decided to go to Nämdö with Janne for a bit of lunch and shopping. However, his boat's propeller developed a fault, so we turned back and went with plan 'B', which was to catch the Waxholms boat. The one drawback to that plan was that we'd have 4 hours to kill before our return boat. There's not much to do on Nämdö; we visited the church, which was beautiful, and we looked carefully at all the groceries offered by Guns Livs. Fortunately, it was sunny, and the bar was stocked with lots of good food and beer, so the afternoon passed quite quickly in Janne's company.

The weather forecast for today is rain, but it's 11AM now and we have sun, so we hope the forecast will remain wrong and we can relax on our deck.
