Great pictures Mari, thanks for sharing them with us!
(And welcome home.)
Also, the "tapwater is sometimes better than bottled water" Tapwater is better in about 99% of Sweden. And i happen to live in i think it's the 3rd best water-quality town/community in Sweden.
Nice pics Mari. Looks like a lot of fun. It stinks you couldn't meet up with Candlejack and make it an international transatlantic KKF meetup.
But one of the things we (don't really..) pride ourselves with in Sweden is some of the worlds best water.
Beautiful pictures! I love the little write-up on the salvaged ship. I also got a nice chuckle that "American muffins" are cinnamon buns.
When the Vasa was raised an attempt at preservation was made using propylene glycol, I believe, and it has since been discovered that the "preservative" was dissolving the wood! I'm not sure what has been done recently, but the preservation work has not been simple!
