As most years I spent the summer vacation sailing in the archipelago of Bohuslän. The kids have lots of summer activities of their own and new crew members were coming and going during the weeks.
How can they catch up with the boat?
Public transports, by the regional coach service of course!
Even remote villages mostly populated by fishermen have several connections every day.
At Tjörn a new approach has been applied to attract more riders. In the long winter days the roads are dark and electricity for lightning up the shelters for the travelers is not given, in al places. In found that now solar panels in combination with motion sensors have been installed. In the long, cold and dark winter season surely the light will be welcome.
When you are lucky you may get the opportunity to see some seals. Unfortunately the seals in Bohuslän are under attack from several directions. Apart from the traditional competition for fish with two legged mammals they are now also damaged by rapid speed boats and water scooters. This year I found a young seal with a clear propeller cut across the head, stranded in a small bay.
Still the lazy bums seems to enjoy life tremendously and did not attempt to move as we were gliding thorough the water between the small islands in the light wind.
