Canoeing



Yesterday we spent the day canoeing at Vättlefjäll which is a series of lakes just north of Gothenburg. Although it wasn't as sunny as it had been all week, the rain managed to stay away for most of the day.

There were 4 lakes that were linked by little streams or some areas where you had to take the canoe out of the water and carry it over the land which was hard work!




We stopped for a BBQ on an island at lunchtime only to discover that no-one had packed matches, so had to wait awhile for another boat with matches to turn up!
