A quiet bay we explored with the dingy while Espen and Elin slept off the night. Sheep on the beach luckily left us alone. By lunch the summer joined us for a windy, but beautiful afternoon by motor through Blindleia. Old fisherman’s houses and new summer houses makes this a special inland archipelago (and hot property market) - indeed beautiful.  Though, sad to see so much high speed and no patience in narrow passages.  The evening was exciting:  we”found” a little rock not marked which the captain did not like and lots of wind on the last stretch before another natural anchorage.


Narrow passages and impressive German sailors coming through
