Journey to Sweden part 3


 
This week we have Jo and Pip staying and what a lovely little boy he is.  He loves his food and his bathtime is a riot of splashing.  It took him a little while to settle in his bedroom here but last night he slept right through from 8 till 630 so we're all happy people today!  The sun is shining and we're going out later after his nap.
 
 
 
So, back to the Sweden trip, we left Jo's house and headed for Harwich where we caught the ferry to Esbjerg in Denmark on the 4th of June after seeing a few of the Jubilee celebrations on tv.
 
 
We stayed on a campsite on the edge of Copenhagen for 3 nights to visit the city and have a look around the coast nearby.
 
 
On the 9th of June we crossed the Oresund bridge into Sweden on a rather damp and misty day.  We headed for our first stop at a campsite near Kalmar on the Baltic coast.  When we woke the next morning the sky was blue and the view out to sea absolutely lovely, we'd arrived in paradise!
 
 
We spent a week here, exploring on our bikes through forests of pine and beech, driving to Oland and visiting the glassworks at Orrefors.
