This is the third time we’ve been here, and we will be back again next week. Lovely as it is we are looking forward to going somewhere else.
Last Wednesday we did what we always say we are going to do but rarely do, we went with the wind. The wind was from the south so we sailed north and anchored off an island called Rano. This was the sunset that evening.
.The weather forecast wasn’t good for the next few days so we headed back to Nynashamn. This is the walkway at the top of the harbour where for some reason they have this collection of ducks.
Friday we went into the small town where we had a choice of three opticians, we went for Specsavers, I’d never realised that they weren’t just a British company. Martin now has more glasses on order which is why we’ll be back next week.
The weather has continued to be incredibly windy, the German next door to us on Wednesday evening went out Thursday morning and was back in Friday afternoon. We are sheltered in Nynashamn with an island the other side of the harbour and he said it was too windy once out into the larger expanse of sea.
Saturday we went for a walk along the coast, this was obviously very old.
This is a view from the beach,
and another view looking the other way. This is within the shelter of the island so looks relatively calm.
Boats have continued to go out, fortunately we’re not in a hurry so have been happy to shelter on the boat. These are some boats we saw today,
doesn’t look that nice.
We have our hood up which protects us nicely from the wind and occasional rain. We’re third from the left.
We are between metal poles, across from us there is a combination,
stern buoys and people ignoring the stern buoys and going alongside. You will also notice the cruise ship in the distance, first we’ve seen this week, just turned up overnight and we guess will disappear around 6.
For variety we walked further to a supermarket today, Lidl, I think they should all have views like this from their car parks.
On this we have the cruise liner, ferry to Gotland which up to now we had thought was large and a yacht to put it in perspective.
This has appeared in the marina, they also had one at Vaxholm although we’re yet to see them in use.
A boat wash.
Hopefully the weather should start to settle tomorrow so we hope to be off and do a week’s touring before coming back again.
