... was closed because it was now 'off season'! In Sweden (& especially on Gotland) 'on season' is just 4-5 weeks mid summer in July! Dinner was also a challenge; all restaurants were closed for the off season so we got some ingredients from the corner store for some home made pasta in our tiny cabin kitchen.

Friday morning we were up early ready for more geocaching on ...

... We walked the winding cobbled streets, browsing some shops, and exploring the countless ruined churches and buildings of Visby. The most significant monuments being the Cathedral of Marie Lucia and ruined St Nicholas church.

At night we spend a lot of time at the Norra Graver, just out side the northern wall. ...

... astronomical charges for a rickety pontoon in the sticks.

It was flat calm, despite what the forecast promised ( 4 – 12 knots from the East) so we resigned ourselves to motoring the 40 miles to Visby. The route took us west up the Fårösund , round the top of Gotland and then southwards down the west coast towards Visby. It was an uneventful passage apart from the ever present blue-green algae, which I first introduced on 26th July. Now we ...
