The Voyage of 'S/V Röde Orm' - Sweden
Come on board and take part in our adventures while exploring the world at the slow pace of a sailing boat. We left in June 2009, heading south to escape the northern winter... to start with. Currently in Algarve/Portugal taking it one day at a time.

you can see the Sea behind the trees

A stroll in the Park

Not quite the park, but along the waterfront close to the marina and boat yard. It's amazing, we have been so busy workign on the boat that we harly noticed the spring transforming to summer around us.

So beautiful, flowers, birds singing, the light of the sun short before it sets...

here's aview to the north with the bridge between Sweden and Denmark some 4-5 miles away

Back in the boat
06/02/2009, Falsterbokanalen

A Northerly 30-40 knotter predicted for tomorrow made us hastily turn back. A northerly is the only wind direction that provides a sloppy wave action in the marina. Because of this e felt we had to go back and move the boat to another slip. Since we do not have a fixed slip here, we'll have to use anyone where the owner, or more specifically, his boat, is nfor whatever reason not here.

So, tomorrow (we arrived here at 1AM) we'll move Röde Orm to a more protected slip.

Today's picture is showing some nice spring flowers. Unfortunately I forgot to bring the camera to the house, so this pic was on Google, courtesy Gamleby/Västervik

House visit & Laundry
05/31/2009, Gamleby

Spent this weekend in our shore-base in Gamleby 470 km N of Falsterbo Kanal. A little more than two months(!) laundry had to be taken care of and lots of winter stuff to be stored away in the house as well as another lot of boat stuff to be brought back to the boat.

The weather is just wonderful here. This fact, together with my parents joining us will probably mean we'll be staying here a few days more.

The luxury of a bathroom with a tub and hot water, a king size bed and a 'real' kitchen is hard to turn down after all. We are having B BQ'-s every night in the garden while the birds are entertaining us.
