It was a short trip today up to Vänersborg, where we arrived at around 12:00. It is a very nice and efficient guest harbour close to the town centre. For the guest anchorage it is stern lines you pick up from the jetty and take them astern to tie up the stern. It is quite easy if you know how to do it. This was the first time for Janet with this arrangement and it went very well.

The trip today was just 7 miles with a lock and a bridge. We will stay here today to fill up our stores with food and drink. We will also fill up with diesel for the coming trip through the canal, Göta Kanal.

As the weather forecast says strong wind and rain for a couple of days, we decide tomorow if we stay here in Vänersborg until the end of the week and wait out the bad weather. We are planning for a two day trip over the lake Vänern, to make the journey more comfortable, and it would be nice to do it in nice weather for a change.

We finished the day with a nice dinner and good wine, all which Janet had prepared with tender loving care, as usual. Good food is the normal standard on board Lady Ann.
