A very early start at 4am to get Matt to Gardermoen (Oslo) airport for his return flight to the UK. After a sad farewell we headed up north into Sweden for a change in scenery. The lakes are now surrounded by pine forests. By the time we reached Torsby we were feeling the effects of our early morning and found a campsite ( Camping Alevi) north of Eksharad. The site is on a bend of the river Klaralven and a great spot for a few days rest.
The next day we got the scooter out for the first time this holiday and drove into Eksharad to visit the weekend market which was situated in a outdoor museum of old dwellings.
We also visited the Stave Kirke with its unusual graveyard crosses made of wrought iron with metal leaves which ring in the wind.
The afternoon was spent walking in the pine forests to see yet another waterfall, halfway round the heavens opened and we got thoroughly soaked and although we saw all the signs of moose in the area none appeared.
