Presenting: Hokukea! (May 2, 2024)

What a great birthday present for Adam!…. and also quite a gift for MJ 🙂 We spent the morning reviewing all the interior systems of the boat, went for a late lunch at 1 p.m., and then out for a sail. The winds were brisk, about 20 knots, gusting to 30 knots. We practiced maneuvering under sail and then under power (with throttle and bow and stern thrusters). Finally, we anchored in a quiet spot and had some coffee and birthday cake for Adam (compliments of the receptionist, Annika. Tak tak, Annika!). Our heads are spinning. We are staying the night in a little hotel in Stenungsund and will go to a birthday dinner at a nice little Italian restaurant we found on our first trip to Ellös in 2022. Tomorrow we move aboard and begin unpacking and storing. The winds will quiet down a bit this weekend, so maybe we’ll go out for a little sail.

    1. The sunny days here are gorgeous….even when the temps are cool. The rainy days are VERY cold, however!!!
