    Docksta

    June 16, 2017 in Sweden

    Having said yesterday that much of the scenery was similar, today we crossed a striking suspension bridge over a deep fjord. Its red painted metal reminded us a little of the Forth Road Bridge. We were able to park at a rest area overlooking it for lunch.

    The road took us close to the sea but we never got to see its full expanse because of the deeply serrated nature of the shoreline and the many headlands and islands extending out into the Gulf. We were also never quite sure whether it was the sea, because there were lakes and sea on both sides as we crossed many smaller bridges.

    We hadn't programmed Docksta in to the sat nav but we saw it as we passed and felt compelled to turn around and go back to it. The car park was mainly for the passenger ferry that did island hopping tours a couple of times a day. A wide grassy strip and a low rocky sea wall separated the cars from the shallow water. Although the bay was connected to the open sea, it was bordered with low hills everywhere we could see.

    Will went for a quick dip then took the canoe and fishing line and spent a happy few hours floating around. Vicky had been feeling pretty low, so sat out with Poppy (and some chocolate) doing her knitting.

    On Will's explorations he had discovered a pier with picnic tables and a wood burner with a grill. Chopped wood was provided so we got some sausages and buns from the little supermarket nearby and had ourselves a BBQ and beer. Vicky was feeling a lot better by this point and even more so as we chatted away on the phone to her brother and our friend Ade.

    It is still so light when we go to bed that after Vicky had settled down for some shut eye, Will went out and did some more fishing.

    Day 474: The High Coast

    June 3 in Sweden

    Heading north again, to the High Coast world heritage area. This is known as the High Coast because it's literally, a high coast above the shoreline. The highest in the world, apparently! But we learned that it's not high with dramatic cliffs, it's just elevated land next to the sea.

    It's elevated because of isostatic land uplift, whereby during the Ice Age the weight of a 3km thick ice sheet pushed the land down. Once the ice melted, the land gradually rose again - several hundred metres in some places. Apparently there are early Bronze Age settlements discovered up on the hills that were originally at the shore level and are now 150m up which is quite cool. And in around 2500 years' time, there'll be a land bridge between this area of Sweden and Finland.

    Nice countryside, though we actually found it a little underwhelming. "High Coast" conjures up visions of dramatic cliffs and escarpments, but it was all a bit of a let down, sadly. Still nice to look at though, and we managed to get our video done.

    Made camp at a completely deserted campground, with only one other tent at the other end and a note on the door at reception saying you were welcome to pay in the morning! Very trusting.

    Ein Tag am Stand

    September 1, 2017 in Sweden

    An unserem letzten Wandertag ging es heute für uns am Meer entlang.

    Wir kamen an zwei Buchten vorbei und konnten an einer kleinen Holzhütte das rauschende Meer genießen.

    Weiter ging es durch ein Gebiet mit Schwedischen Ferienhäuser.
    Direkt an einem Golfplatz.

    Was das wohl kosten mag.

    Zurück am Camper wollten wir heute noch etwa die Hälfte der Strecke nach Stockholm zurücklegen.
    Unsere Ankunft verzögerte sich dann aber ziemlich schnell um direkt 1,5h durch eine Vollsperrung auf der Autobahn.

    Nun stehen wir etwa 100km vor Gävle, wo wir morgen noch durchschlendern.

    Lämnar Dalarna

    July 26 in Sweden

    Lämnade Orsa för färd mot kusten. Åkte på mysiga små vägar i vackert landskap de första 15 milen.
    Nu kände vi av bränderna här uppe, röken låg som en lätt dimma i luften och brandlukten var påtaglig.

    Kom ut på E4 och sedan var det bara transport förbi Hudiksvall, Sundsvall och lite andra städer.
    Framme vid Högakustenbron efter 14.
    Blev mat på Hotellet, köttfärslimpa och pasta.
    Fortsatte några mil för att sedan stanna på en liten camping vid E4:an.
    Kvällen blev lugn med en massa bokläsning.
