We’re back here much sooner than expected, they had said Martin’s glasses would take 10 days to a fortnight but we got the email yesterday to say they were ready, so here we are again.
We set off on Tuesday as the wind had dropped, us and everyone else in the marina. Here is the view behind us.
We anchored in the evening in a bay that wasn’t too busy there was just us and another boat plus these yachts tied against the rocks.
We were opposite this house being built
and the entrance to the Dragets Kanal.
We had come a different route to the anchorage and this boat seemed to hesitate for quite a while before deciding to go for it. We’ve seen pictures of it and it is definitely only one boat wide.
We had our own narrow entrances to contend with on Wednesday, this was a short cut we took.
This is after we’d been through, fortunately it was wider and deeper than it looked from the entrance. This one though was definitely narrow,
another view of the buoys,
definitely only one boat wide and round a blind corner. Fortunately no-one else was coming the other way. Although once we were through and waiting for this swing bridge
this trip boat appeared through the same gap. Don’t know what we were worried about.
We anchored the next two nights off a small island, Fifang. Not too busy on Wednesday but last night there were sixteen boats.
One of the benefits of this anchorage was the ice cream boat.
They also sold fruit and bread and came round both days we were there.
We were able to dinghy ashore and go for a walk on a marked path, the island was a nature reserve. Here’s Martin, studying the route.
and here’s where we turned back
The cattle were behind an electrified fence, here’s the battery to prove it.
Today we have motored back to Nynashamn, picked up the glasses and are ready to set off again first thing tomorrow, hopefully another nice anchorage.
We’ll try and keep away from the Swedes tomorrow afternoon, might be difficult bearing in mind where we are.
