Najad's Turn

Well we enjoyed our summer's day. This morning the clouds were back, so that the fjord looked strangely threatening, but beautiful nevertheless.

We only had a few miles to go, 5 to be precise, our next location was the original home of Najad Yachts, the small town of Henån. By 11:00 we were safely in the harbour, with 0.1m under the keel ! We were at the outermost berths so Lord knows what the depths were further in.

The town doesn’t have much, apart ...

Today was the day that we would start our southward trek and I was looking forward to doing a bit of traveling, rather than hopping from one nearby anchorage or harbour to another. Mind you, we weren't planning anything too major, only about 30 miles or so but still, up to 10 x the distance that we’ve covered on previous days! So after a good breakfast of Swedish black pudding accompanied by fried egg & tomato, we were off at ...

A Nice Harbour

... again when we come north for Norway, whether next year or the year after is currently being debated, so we will definitely make the pilgrimage then.

So, after our sun-fix we caught the 15:31 into town, did a bit of exploring and shopping and caught the 16:20 back again (it is a small town!). One interesting point, in the boatyard is a boat that has obviously been salvaged. Her hull is covered in old barnacles and there is ...
