This is "Onbekommerd"!

This is how it should be

After a few days with very unsettled weather, the forecast for today was good so we set the alarm clock for 6am and by 6:30 we were off our moorings. Although it was still a bit windy, it was a north westerly so we were under the lee of the land most of the time and had a great day's motoring. We had planned to get to Västervik in two days and had found a nice mooring about half way. But when we got to that spot we were going nicely and it was only 1pm so we carried on to the first spot where we ever back-anchored, a small island called Björkholmen. So now we are just 2 hours from Västervik, which we'll do in the morning. After that, there will be one or two unsettled days again but Västervik is a nicely sheltered harbour.
In the meantime, we are here with one British and seven Swedish boats. The British boat has a British / Dutch couple on it, with a guest who is a dual French - Swiss citizen. Quite an international bunch.
The view from the back of the boat is nice:

After dinner, the multinational crew met on Onbekommerd. The British skipper is a pianist and he gave us a concert, the first 'stranger ' ever to play Onbekommerd 's piano!

To end off, we had a sunset worthy of a nice picture.

A very nice day, all in all!
