Hello Gert,
I often mistake which parts of Stockholm show the sea or a lake or a river.
Inland you have of course Lake Mälaren and the sea is on the east side of Stockholm.
But in my memory of the boat trip from the centre of town to Sandhamn, it seemed to me that it took longer before we saw the Baltic Sea...
Not all that important. A visit of Stockholm certainly produces a lot of water views.
Nicely done: Four out of five people in your main photo aren't surfing the web.
In the distance I see some beautiful clouds while the water has a splendid blue colour.
Best regards, Paul

Default To PaulVDV: baltic sea

Thank you Paul,
Yes, to see the "real" Baltic Sea you will have to go a long way. The entire archipelago is just a maze of thousands of islands with narrow channels between them. Going down by plane towards Arlanda I have sometimes seen the huge ferries on their way to Finland looking like they're cruising through a garden. You can hardly see the water from 2-3 thousand meters height. It looks absurd.
Have a nice evening.

Hi Gert,

Besides the boat trip to Sandhamn in 2011, I took the boat from Stockholm to Helsinki a long time ago (in 1980).
In fact, both trips were some of the most beautiful boat trips possible.

Being on a ship on the high seas doesn't really mean much to me.

Kind regards,
