Skärgårdsfest in Karlskrona
When we entered Karlskrona just before lunch today, there appeared to be a lot of activity on the quayside. And the Gästhamn was full, we got the last 'proper' spot before people start to have to double up.
We discovered it is the annual Skärgårdsfest, a festival throughout the town, with all sorts activities like beach handball, a kiddies circus, a fun fair and live music. Quite a nice vibe and the weather is nice and sunny which of course helps a lot!
The plan is to use the upcoming days with little wind predicted to move further southwest, tomorrow to the small island of Hanö, where we have not been before and on Monday on to Simrishamn which is in the southern province of Skåne and two stops away from our last Swedish port which will most likely be Gislövs Läge, near Trelleborg.
