Calm sea, stunning scenery, gorgeous northern twilight, a peaceful sunset, the company of good friends from school days.  No better way to start our Baltic Cruise. 

We departed Stockholm at 4pm and cruised through the Archipelago where many people were holidaying at the summer houses dotted around the islands.  Sitting on our deck, toasting our journey with bubbles and watching this beautiful part of the world drift by was a perfect start to the next leg of our holiday.
