Yesterday we took the ferry to Sweden from Sandefjord. The ferry itself was similar to the Interislander except that it was full of duty free shops, and the Norwegians all climbed on board with shopping trolleys, that by the end of the 2 1/2 hour trip were chockabloc full of stuff...alcohol mainly!
We spent the day here in Stromstad
Stromstad is a cute little coastal town that reminded me of Picton. Lots of very nice boats moored up to the wharves that Ian liked.
There was a small market on the waterfront and there we found this lady selling her knitted and crocheted goods.This coat took her twelve months to knit, and it tells the story of the Swedes leaving Sweden for America and arriving in Minnesota. She had it for sale for 25000 krona which Melissa said is about six thousand dollars.
Her work was amazing and I rather lusted after the coat, especially right there and then, because there was a cold wind blowing as we headed back to the ferry.
