At Sea

Saturday was a full day at sea on our way to Stockholm. There are two reasons it takes so long to go from Copenhagen to Stockholm. First we're told the water is too shallow for the large ships to go directly under the Malmo bridge and the alternative is to go all the way around the west side of Denmark. The second reason is that the journey up the archipelago to Stockholm is quite narrow and very long, and a slower speed is needed to navigate the islands and obstacles. This part of the journey takes about 4 hours each way.

Here are a few of the photos taken from the ship while at sea.
