board. We motored the 9 miles along the narrow fjords out of
Unfortunately the rain set in for the day and we had to moor up against the harbour wall which was a bit sloppy, but did some shopping showed Lisa the “Bogalot” (which is not spelt like this but it was our nickname for the government run alcohol shop which is very like an Argos shop in the UK). You place your order on a ticket, press for a number, then when your number comes up you go to the checkout and order then wait and pay for your goods. After this excitement we finished the day by Lisa cooking dinner which was consumed with lots of wine and watching Matchstick Men on DVD.
The following morning we motored again (no wind) back through the narrow fjord to Saltjobaden and had lunch at the marina before walking Lisa and Mark to the train for Stockholm. So a great few days in the city – even though we ain’t really city folk.
heading for Sandholm sailing alone and over the next few days we will catch up
with Kaikoura and head up to
Love to you all
