♥ Boats on Mondays ♥

So, we’re going on with our secret islands trip, you’ve already been with us to The Swedish Viking Town Birka and The Nobility Island Adelsö earlier.

Now we’re going to the islet of Rastaholm – still in the sweet water Lake Mälaren, where there also is a guest harbor, which is full of boats.

When I began thinking of writing this post, I thought that I didn’t have so many photos from there and it weren’t any good ones. Big surprise for me when I started!!!!




A very suitable stop to do at the cruise, since the Stockholm Sailing Society (SSS) has its club house out on the islet of Rastaholm, they have existed since 1895.



Rastaholms Inn is from 1932 and located on its own islet, with a restaurant which was the place we had in mind in the first place for our dinner this day, butt remember: my hunger took command so we did eat at Adelsö.

Here is the viking sign at the entrance of the Inn. Don’t ask me what it says though…. *giggles*


The Inn is managed by the brothers Dennis and Renato Petéh, who has forbears from Italy (the Adriatic Sea) where the food is to be enjoyed without stress, together with good friends.




The restaurant is also very nicely decorated inside with scenes from the sea and even some viking ship is painted in the ceiling.




A big plus for this restaurant, is that they have a very enjoyable porch by the lake where you can feast on their excellent food with a beautiful lake view. It’s rather expensive, but certainly worth the cost.


We were only drinking some beers, since we had already eaten and I almost did regret that we didn’t eat here, butt then I would probably not have survived getting my dinner so late…

Cheers my dears ;-)

Our day out and all the secret islands ended with a beautiful and very romantic sunset….




I can’t really decide though, if the golden treasure was the golden beer or the golden sunset – maybe it was both…?

    This is a golden post fra A to Z. I’m very happy you found mant pictures and you went to Rastaholms Inn in the evening. Beautiful setting.

    Butt, what is written under the Viking Ship at the entrence. Well, I went out to the Viking Ship Museum in Oslo to have it dechiffered. It was a big surprise, even for the “Rune” Expert – Dr Arch Rune Lettersson:
    Me, the Viking Chief Thure Biggvalsson, predict that in thousand years from now, people can travel over the Seas without boats. The name of that vessel will be KhyberKruuse.
