When all the measurements at sea are done for the day there are usually a lot of data to process. So the workday continues even after we have reached the port. Eventually most of us get some free time, which we use in different ways. Almost everyone watches Game of thrones, but are all at different episodes, so the mess (where we eat) has been used to watch Game of thrones during the evening. Other popular activities are swimming, snorkeling, fishing and walking around exploring the two beautiful towns that we stay at during the night: Stromstad and Grebbestad. We also visit the stores regularly so we have enough snacks for a few days, just in case we won’t be able to go to port for a while!
So, I promised that there would be cute animals today and here they are: fluffy puffy cutiepies a.k.a swan chicks!
Don’t let the cuteness deceive you though, the reason that they approached us and let us take these cute pics was probably because they wanted to pick a fight with the boat. They approached us and then the parents started to hiss at us in a not-so-friendly way.
