Mon afternoon 24 May.  After dropping Anne-Cathrine off in Risor we headed down the coast to Lyngor, a lovely Island community and World Heritage Site, but sadly it started to rain, so after lunch we set off again for a lovely sail up a six mile fjord to Tvedestrand. Great supper of fresh caught cod fillets fried in breadcrumbs.


Tue 25 May.  Quick explore of Tvedestrand in the morning.  Bit of an out of season ghost town, but did find a baker with fresh bread.  Off in lovely sunshine, heading for Arendal, where Jonas headed back to Tonsberg by bus. 


Now just Jan, Danuta and Sam for the remainder of the leg to Kristiansand.


Found a VINMONOPOL and bought their cheapest white wine box for 309 kroner (£35).  A litre of Gordons Gin was 420 kroner (£48).  Only beer can be bought in Supermarkets and half litre cans cost around £3 each! 


Off again for a great sail to Grimstad, another historic coastal town. Moored alongside for the night.
