Yesterday was the first day off in a long time. Brilliant sunshine and a fresh breeze that blew while we set off south through Albrektsunds channel. Great to sit with his hand on the tiller and enjoy the surroundings. It took at least ten minutes from there we came ashore at our destination until youngest son had to change his clothes because he managed to fall in.
I'm going småklurar. Spent a morning last week with Stig, former chairman of the local heritage society. He knows everything about the old Marstrand. Now he had picked up maps from 1600 - and 1700's to me. After going through them I went out in search of a bygone age. You get second thoughts when they trudge in the old streets with the knowledge that the foundation of the house next door is from the 1700s. When I worked with Soul coffin, I could always go to the Town Hall basement, but now I find new places. It's exciting!
Otherwise it's signings is the schedule. On Saturday I was in Partille bookstore. There I met my oldest (I think) reader - Walfrid who soon turns 96 years. I thought he was joking when he revealed his age. An alert and awake gentleman who gave me a surprisingly strong hug before he left with a signed copy of Soul coffin in his hand.
