Heading out of Sweden

... a sail as we had initially, but fun all the same. Later on, it was pretty much 100% in our face so we gave up and reverted to the engine. Getting fed up with flogging our way against 22 knots of wind, we started looking for a harbour or anchorage and opted for one, very close to yet another bridge, but this one, even higher, joins Orust’s southerly neighbouring island, Tjörn with the mainland. This harbour is called Almösund and here we found an ...

... just a group of 6 power boats on the rocks with the owning families sitting in a group around their picnic tables on the rocks. They are very sociable, the Scandinavians, they do appear to enjoy these informal get-togethers, this particular group were there from the time we arrived at 15:15 until after we went to bed at around 10:30.
