April 5: Swedish seashore

The departure from Stockholm. I spent most of the remaining daylight time up on deck.

This time we took the Silja Serenade, not the Symphony.

Along the shore after liftoff: an approaching brigade of apartment buildings.

Back toward the city. I think I now recognize some of these spires: Tyska Kyrkan at left, Storkyrkan about 1/3 of the way across, Klara Kyrkan the left one of the two spires near the middle.

Tallink and the Viking Line.

Soft late-day clouds.

I like this icon because it's (1) mystifying and (2) the people-agglomeration in the center looks like an internal component of an old tape recorder or something.

Bird-tree islands.

The marshy parts of the shore seemed quite similar to some of the terrain of southwestern Finland.
