Kayaking, Håkansskär, Oct 19th-20th

Solo kayaking weekend in the Håkansskären archipelago.. Heading out from Rävsnäs on Saturday morning, with westerly tail winds.. The archipelago is very calm and desolated this time of year, a true wilderness.. The sea and air is cold but with proper gear (drysuit is a must) and close attention to weather forecasts it can be safe and very enjoyable.. I camped on Norrskären, and watched the sun set at 6pm and the moon rise shortly after.. On Sunday morning, the overcast clouds put a dreamy grey blanket on the landscape while I made my way back in a southern-western loop..
