Orust, West Coast of Sweden, Beginning of June 2018
"The Earth has music for those who listen" -that is how I find the month of May feels like, the time of the year when so much happens in nature, especially here in Scandinavia.
With very long days, the sun rises early and sets late providing many silent mornings. This year, with hardly any rain, wind or moving water.
.As mentioned in my previous couple of posts, we have spent most of our recent time working on the boat. This includes diving to check and maintain the mooring to make sure the boat is safe on her buoy.
.With most days having an air-temperature of 25-30°C, this May turned out to be warmest I have ever been experienced at the Swedish west coast. It is indeed unusual for us "vikings" 😉 to have such long-lasting and stable temperatures that early in the summer...
.Also onboard "Eja" it has been warm and sweaty. To give you a little insider look of how she has been looking like under deck this final week we have been working on her, this is it:
.One of many good aspects of having work to do on a boat moored on the fjord, is that saltwater always is close by and so is the paddle board, which is where the energising breaks are spent.
Conditions like these cannot be ignored! 💦 🙃 🤙
."The mess is getting less" and the growing list of must to do things is finally seeing an end... 🤓
The coziness has found itself back onboard (yes also inside 😉) and the North Sea is calling for some observant eyes! 🐬💦
It´s getting time to set those sails again! ⛵️😇
