Kalmar to Stockholm; and the Ikea Mother Store

The next day we visited Kalmar and its castle, then drove on 240km to Stockholm. The terrain was gorgeous, bucolic, much of it reminiscent of the Wisconsin Dells. After visiting the Mother Ikea store, just south of Stockholm, we camped, more or less downtown, at Langholmens Husbilcamping, on the island of Langholmen. Stockholm is situated on dozens of islands, with canals, bridges, etc. A beautiful city we'll see more of this weekend.
In Kalmar, a land whale

Kalmar Slott (castle), moat, etc.
