Two nights at Lickershamn – walking paths

Yesterday I cruised north to the small harbor of Lickershamn. From here you can walk along the edge of the 90-foot calcarous cliffs on a footpath that goes a long way, both south and north. It is called the Kustklintleden, well marked and easy to navigate. Sometimes it goes up or down rather steep. Today, I walked south for 10 km, and then back to the boat. Halfway along the path, I passed a young couple pushing/pulling a toddler stroller along. Can they, so can I!!! LOL.
It took a better part of the day. The weather was good, winds SW 5-10 msec, sunny and warm (28°C). My feet needed cooling when I got back on board. So I put them in a bucket of cold seawater. Felt better… Tomorrow the winds will be low, but I intend to sail into the sound between Faroy (Fårö) and Gotland. The ultimate plan is to meet with my daughter and grandchild and sail together. The first time for my granddaughter to sail. She is used to travel to and fro this island by ferryboat. And they are huge. So when she came and had a look at Isabell, she said I live on a very (VERY) small boat. Yepp, everything is relative. It was a good stay here at Lickershamn. A lot of good has happened since I was here 2017 with Monica, on our way down to Poland.
