Driving the Southeast Coast of Sweden

Part of the harbor at Skillinge

A dolmen and stone circle on the sea

Me by the sea

A fierce-looking cow near Bromsehus

Sunday the 14th we drove from Kaseberga, leisurely, to Bromsehus, up the coast a bit, stoppoing for lunch in the fishing village of Skillinge, grocery shopping in Rimrashamn, and more megalithic sites. The weather was beautiful, the terrain alternating coast and fields of wheat, occasional woods. Denmark is said to be 85% tilled. This part of Sweden is even more so. We stopped for the night near the old medieval fort of Bromsehus, now a complete ruins except for the raised area and enormous ditch, all right by an inlet from the sea.
