Day 2 – Midsummer

Friday 22 June 2012, position 59*27’N 018*19′ E
We get the dinghy into the water already in the evening of the first day. Today we row into shore and walk to the party. It is far and one of our friends comes halfway and picks us up in his car. We have a wonderful time at the party.

When we take the bus back and walk the last bit to where we parked Isabell, we get to the bay after dark /around midnight/. Isabell is gone! First we panic a little, then we start walking around the shore to see if she drifted with the wind. No Isabell. When we are about to call the police, we look into the dinghy and find a nicely written note. Neighboring people had seen that Isabell was dragging anchor in the soft bottom, and they had with the help of another sailboat moved Isabell to the other side of the cove. We rowed over and found her all well and nicely anchored in clay bottom. Poooh! What a scare.

Now we need to rest. We stay in the cove tomorrow and just read, fix things good food and row around in the dinghy. Pick wildflowers in the roadside and walk thorugh a little park. Great! Here are some party pictures…
