Sunday 24 June 2012, we run into the guest harbour at Vaxholm to lay over for one night. It is time to celebrate Monicas mom's 75the birthday. We walk up to the house and have a wonderful time with family. Good food and relatively nice weather. Hardly any wind today, so we run on the engine all of the 5 nM there. This harbour is not among my favorites, too crowded and sloshy, for each time the ferry boat goes by, the whole harbour turns into a soup bowl. But the town is nice. In the evening we sit in the cockpit and try to solve a crossword puzzle...
Day 5- we wake up to the smatter of rain. It is raining like mad out there. Continues through the morning to rain. We decide to wait for a wee bit better weather. We are on the low side of the dock, so Monica and I make plans on how to get out of the harbour. Not going to be easy. Mean while it is raining and raining... Will we go anywhere today? Weather report said it will be little better this afternoon. We wait and see.
