Getting Stuck in the Mud

15 September 2008 | Lng-Trss N 57 57,0 E16 47,3
In the morning we had a walk across the island to the village together with Staffan.

We were hoping to find some mushrooms, but that was not to happen. We found some wild berries that are excellent to flavour vodka with though, and the village was as picturesque as always including the red water lilies in the pond where the villagers get their drinking water. (see pic)

after lunch Isa and I got going again, while Staffan was to spebd another night before heading back north to Stockholm again.

Yet another fast and exciting trip through the archipelago, until we anchored for the night at another of my favourite spots. Much to my surprise we got stuck in the muddy seafloor when we anchored. I've seen vessels with deeper draught then our's anchor here on numerous occations, but what I didn't take into account was that caused by the mighty High Pressure system, we currently have low water by at least 40 cm's. Oooops!

OK, It was quite late, about to get dark in a few minutes and since there is no tides here, and we were perfectly sheltered from the wind, we decided to go to sleep and hopefully wharp our way out of here in the morning...
