Birthday on the rocks
July 29, 2005
Today, Martin & co carry on north, while we turn back south.
We enjoy a very relaxed southbound cruise.
Audrey prepares lunch downstairs
Then we switch, I carry on making lunch. Not paying enough attention to the charts...
Sure enough, we manage to get stuck on one of these.
Might as well put on the vests.

After a few minutes, I flag down a passing boat - with a dingy.
They guy is kind enough to take our anchor, and drop it a few hundred feet out.
We winch ourselves, using the anchor, off the rocks.
I had already called for towing assistance, but we were done before they eventually appeared.
So they might as well head back home...and we carry on south.
You're better off sticking to suggested routes...cooking lunch is a sure attention grabber.
After arriving in Smögen, I go down to check for scratches.
Sporting an even tan...or was it uneven?
also trying some underwater photography

Results may vary though...

The summer season also features lots of little fancy boutiques.

So, it's my birthday - and my crew is cooking dinner for me.

As the sun sets...
...dinner is served!
