Långö - Fjällbacka
July 27, 2005
We wake up on 'Långö' the next day, under a blue sky and pretty high winds.
We decide it's too windy to go out, so we just stay the whole day - to relax, eat, and read in the sun...
lunch: toasts & blue cheese salad
tied up in a mesh to handle the wind
four stern lines, six front lines
The bumper and hanging anchor are acting as shock suspension.
One of those holy moments onboard - listening to the weather forecast.
Martin and Per listen in, too.
a glass of red while cooking dinner
Martina's hot sausage stew - even better than last year!
Wine, cheese, and crackers throughout the evening.
Next morning - breakfast as usual.
winching ourselves out, against the wind, by our stern line
letting go of the front lines
...and backing out of there. That took two days of intense planning...or maybe not.
Martin repeats the procedure with 'Nessie'.
And so, we sail inland towards Fjällbacka.
a blue mussel farm (each buoey has a rope attached underneath, on which they grow)
Fjälbacka - another popular spot on the coast.
studying the "kings cleft" - about 6 feet wide, and very deep
the splendor of Fjällbacka archipelago
the old church
spying on 'Nessie' (3rd from the bottom)
our neighbors are German
the sun sets
and I enjoy a beer
Audrey's first shrimps "the real way"
it's around 9.30pm
Per hangs the oil lamp
evening coffee & tea
Sure, I'll have some more with that coffee bread.
