    ... along a different road (of course). Along the way, we saw a sign for Fish & Chips, so we decided that would be a good dinner. It was awesome – operated by a Swedish couple for the last six years, they had apparently taken over a small, unused fishing harbor and were renting
    out tiny cottages and serving take away food. We had a blast talking with them and thoroughly enjoyed our fried delights.

    Packed up and cleaned our cabin this morning ready to return home. We travelled back over the bridge to the town on the mainland called Kalmar. We visited Kalmar Castle which has been extensively restored. The first defence tower was built in 1180. The city grew up around the castle. The castle was strategically important in many ways with respect to relations between Denmark, Norway & Sweden. It had been extended twice before being abandoned and falling ...

We were early so wandered around the outside until it opened at 11.00. Very interesting, especially those aspects relating to the very cold winter here - sleds, horse drawn sleds for individuals and larger family ones, the barns ...

    It was a warm, bright, sunny day and we anticipated a lovely sail in light SW winds up to Sandvik on the coast of Íland, the first of the long islands that lie in a N-S alignment off the east coast of Sweden. To set us in the right frame of mind we had Swedish black pudding & eggs for breakfast – in previous blogs I've mentioned our predilection for black puddings and whilst the Swedish variety doesn’t stack up to those ...
