A misty trip to Stora Kalholmen

There were 12 of us, launching from Horisont Kajak at Norråva, aiming for Stora Kalholmen. Laughter all over the place. Some tense faces, since it was an early premiere for a few of the group members.
A few drops of rain accompanied us on our way to the lunch place at Gällnö.
We watched the fog roll in. The archipelago turned into more than 50 shades of grey. We disturbed it by our colorful dry suits and happy kayak colors.
We got to practise some navigation skills, hopping between the islands.

Stora Kalholmen welcomed us with open arms. The sauna was warm within an hour. The fireplace made us even warmer. It wasn’t easy to leave on Sunday morning.

The fog let go and was replaced by a shimmering sun. The water turned in to a glittering playground and finally, our sun glasses came to use.

12 happy kayakers returned to Norråva with a few blisters, one or two stiff body parts but mostly good memories to save in the feel-good-hatch.

Thank you all, for a fantastic trip. Let’s go again. Soon.
