That little one must have been really exhausted! He paid a short visit on our quick trip west. It’s not so cold any more but all grey and ugly. So tonight we’ll treat ourselves to pizza, find out if the comments on the internet can be trusted!
Guess who lives there? Well, at least in the picturization of the first episodes of the Wallander crime stories this is where he lives. It was one stop of a multi-cache about Kurt Wallander, the detective in many of Henning Mankell’s books. So we spent another day in Ystad, today the wind was too strong… Artikel ansehen
Thick fog in the morning, which made this a day of waiting and waiting and waiting. After a while we said OK, we’ll wait until 3 o’clock. If the fog hasn’t lifted by then, we’ll have to stay because we won’t make it to Gislovs Läge during daylight. Guess when the fog lifted, about 3.30!… Artikel ansehen
Days like this start with an extended breakfast with fresh rolls from the bakery. Then there was time for some geocaching in this beautiful town. And they had a ‚lunch concert‘ at the church, a manifold program on the organ which was played with a lot of wit, it almost felt as if the musician… Artikel ansehen
A grey and rainy day. But in between the rain showers there was time to get groceries and do some geocaching, and that’s when we saw ‚antique and appealing‘ and ‚modern and monstrous‘.
The first half of today’s trip was nice sailing with NW-winds. But around the corner of Sandhammeren we had to beat upwind, plus there was such a choppy wave that sailing felt like bull riding and we were really glad when for the last 5nm we had the wave from the side. Now we’ve decided… Artikel ansehen
This is how Karlshamn said farewell and how Simrishamn said hello! In between we had a great day of sailing, made almost 40nm in less than 8hours, if only it weren’t so cold. In the morning we only had 43°F (6°C) and it didn’t get much warmer, maybe a little less cold.
Another day of strong winds! So I took the train to Ronneby, my friend Karsten had recommended their art exhibition. And it was worth it, not that I understand it all, but it’s impressive what people can create. The sitting girl, I believe it’s work in progress, is by Rosalia Ramirez. Then I was going… Artikel ansehen
A lot of time for a walk around town. I saw the ‚emigrant monument‘ before and didn’t think much about it. Looking more closely today I noticed that it’s only the man who looks ahead, the woman looks at what she has to leave behind! They depict the two main characters of a four volume… Artikel ansehen
How nice to get up a little later, get fresh buns and have them with scrambled eggs for breakfast! Then there’s time for some geocaches. On the way I saw this ‚outdoor sea bath‘, it looks wonderful but I’m not the one to go into that cold water. Later we had some icecream, only three… Artikel ansehen
