Today’s route took me farther north along the Swedish Coast to the beach town of Skummeslovsstrand.
The day once again got started with early rain showers that ended by the time I started walking at 8:15. Today’s temperature was cool enough to need long pants and a shirt with sleeves. It stayed overcast most of the day but never rained on me.
About two hours into my walk, I started a climb of about 700 feet. The road was a little crooked but the traffic was so lite that it did not cause any problems. At the top of the climb was a truck stop, which I reached at the perfect time for lunch. Immediately after leaving the truck stop, the descent began and I went back down the 700 feet I just climbed. Only makes sense because I started at sea level this morning and I’m staying in a hotel at sea level tonight so I went up and came right back down.
Tonight’s accommodations are very spacious and nice. The owner and manager is Marlin Bengtsson, 27 year old business woman and Innkeeper extraordinaire. She has made her little hotel perfect for her guests. I’m lucky to find a place like this in such a small town.
Tomorrow it’s another 18 miles north along the coast to Halmstad, Sweden. The weather forecast calls for rain showers in the morning until about 10:00, so I may get a later start tomorrow. That’s all for today. Thanks for reading. JB.
