We had a few days of very good weather it went up to 27C-80F and in anticipation i washed my sleeping bag got the boat ready then headed off some 12 miles up the lake,..island hopping i call it,..had a few overnights on Hare Island where the biggest hoard of Viking Gold was found back in 1802,..11 lbs of gold,..10 gold arm rings,..silver ingots,..silver arm rings,..coins from the middle east, i am always keeping an eye open lol.

Most of the islands are now uninhabited and there are lots of very old objects to be seen like the old bath below.

Plus a huge old pot probably used to boil pig feed.
