Postcard from Sweden’s West Coast
I went sailing in Sweden’s west coast for a couple of days. It was the perfect getaway for the weekend. My trip started in Grebbestad on Saturday with great company, food and the atmosphere of summer. We had a lovely dinner at Q-Skär with a great portion of fish and a chilled bottle of Sancerre. And for dessert we had strawberries and vanilla ice cream a true taste of summer.
Day 1 in Sweden’s West Coast
Sunday morning we left the port of Grebbestad and out in the open sea for some breakfast and wind in the hair. While having breakfast, we watched a seal swimming towards his meeting point for being a part of the tourist attraction in Grebbestad. Or that was our story of the seals life. He was free, but once a day he had to show up at the rock by the port and strike a pose before returning back to the ocean.
Grebbestad has a lot of restaurants and a viewing point on the top of the small mountain. There is not much more to do then eat well and maybe have a party or two. Sometimes that´s all you need.
Day 2 in Sweden’s West Coast
Further on in Sweden’s west coast was Hamburgö/Hamburgsund that are separated by the canal and linked by a small ferry that takes 2 minutes to cross from one side to the other side. In Hamburgsund we where just enjoying the sun and the food. Sweden’s west coast offer appealingly pared-down relaxation and sensational seafood. It is all about enjoying life and not do to much.
Day 3 in Sweden’s West Coast
We went further on in Sweden’s west coast and entered Hunnbostrand port with room for around 250 boats. Once again it was time for delicious seafood and some great local beer to seal the deal at Henrik’s Sjökrog. Then afterwards walking around looking at bots, people and eat ice cream for dessert.
Then we had the Party Sailboat that was making a big line up for the night. We listen to DJ something playing music for everyone on the harbor. They finished the show with fireworks and some classic Swedish songs: Roxette, Robyn and Björn Rosenström
This was my last night in Sweden’s west coast for this summer. I will be back maybe next year.
Last Word about Sweden’s West Coast
A perfect short break from the city life and a great escape for divine seafood and relaxation. The best sleep is the one that you get on a boat. It was trilling to be back on a sailboat again and feel the vibe of the sailor life after 6 years since last trip.
Spending time with family is always nice even do one of the member know how to pick the best spot and make you get stuck with 1/3 of the bed cover or pillow. Yes, that is Leo the sailor dog that loves the biggest pillow and the bed cover. He can share if he get´s the biggest part. Still he is adorable and in the end he do get the biggest part.
All the photos was from my Ipone 6S.
