Anna and her chauffeur wake up in the office of a Youth Hostel (scroll down to my post below) - had breakfast and found their way to the Car Ferry. We were not alone. So to speak, to cross the sound between Gotland and Fårö - home of Theater and Movie Ikon Ingmar Bergman
, who died to day.
When waiting for the next ferry - I took some photos and also observed a Bankomat.
I told Anna to go there - to have some cash. She did. While there, all the waiting cars for the ferry suddenly started to move - an extra ferry was put in traffic. I drove slowly - did not have any cash to pay the tickets - to bring Anna into the Car again. 10 meters before entering the Ferry, Anna jumped into the car.
But where to pay?
Certainly on board - of course. But no. Well, at Fårö, you sooner or later have to go back - pay on return. Easy? Right? (No - it's free - like a road - this is considered a "water road" in Sweden)
Then, we were heading towards Captain Lifecruiser. We had an obscure idea where mrs and mr Lifecruiser have their summer paradise. Obscure, of course, after sleeping in an office - we had had night work to do *giggles* - -
We followed our Captains
road description - butt stopped at 11:30 am. And called. This is a very short extract from our 10 hour call - no 10 minutes ---
- Hi, it's Tor
- Oh hi Tor, so nice to hear your voice - he he - where are you, Mr Lifecruiser said
- We are just outside ---- Said I
- That's very close- we are not dressed - at all *giggle* - Reason? Read 4 yourself.
- I don't care if you are dressed or not - save the planet *giggles* he he
- OK - you are very close - just drive very slowly.... He continued
- How far is it? 100 meters - 200 - 400 - 800 or 1 km?
- In between
- What shall I look for?
- A grey building
- Most buildings here are sort of grey. What colour of your car do you have?
- it's ----
- Good - then I'll find you
We of course did. After about 10 hours (no it felt like it - only one minute) Mr Lifecruiser arrived. And gave us a heartly welcome hug.Then who else but Captain Lifecruiser stepped out of the Summerparadise house?
What a first time meeting. Unforgetable. What a welcome. Meeting the Captain on our Cyber Cruise in real life. What a blast. We felt immediatly as real old friends.
After the welcome, Mr Lifecruiser drove us all to the North Beach of Fårö. Went for a long walk in the corall sand. Barefooted.
And talked and talked.
And sat down. In the Dunes
It was a windy evening - butt there is allways solutions. Or shelter.
We sat down in the wind shadow - The Farmer himself to the right.
Did we enjoy our selfs? We tested different kind of Wines. Even --- no, can not reveal everything. *giggles*
A wonderful first meeting with a pair of the most wonderful people we ever have met.
The Captain became hungry - and tried to catch some healthy insects.
Anna as Camera hog
Great, friendly people.
We preferred "Fait Trade" Wine. The more we consumed, the more help we gave - *giggles*
In spite of this years summer weather - what a blast of an evening.
It's to early to go to bed - mr Lifecruiser said - and Anna agreed.
It will be a secret at what time we went to bed - In Norway we say: You shall never sleep away the summer nights.
- The Caravan was fixed and ready for the Norse (Norrbaggar) cruisers. We slept on wheels.
A dream of a first time meeting. Thanks to Mr and Mrs Lifecruisers.
