Our first stop today was the Tanum rock carvings. I’d fill in the details but I can’t remember, but they’re old, and carved in rock. It was an interesting visit even if the key facts haven’t stuck… Nice (free!) museum too, especially the display projected on the ceiling, with cushions underneath to lie on!
Then we drove into Fjällbacka, part of Susan’s Scandimurder tour (more on that later I suspect). It was a showery day but nonetheless a really nice visit. Very attractive seaside village backed by huge cliffs which you can walk up giving a fantastic view over the surrounding Islands. We bought ice creams in spite of the weather; well we were by the sea, it’s almost obligatory.
We then dove on to our next overnight stop, another layby with a view! We took what we hoped was the scenic route, which had its moments but wasn’t quite as coastal as we had anticipated. Our journey included a FREE ferry, quite a novelty for people from the Isle of Wight. Loading and unloading all done using traffic lights, the only staff were on the bridge. Along the way the van lost all power and the engine management light came on. Managed to restart a few minutes later and we carried on hoping for he best, making it to our overnight stop with no further problems.
