Our Baltic Cruiseby Earl Ross
Stockholm, Sweden - 5th stop

            To get into Stockholm you must sail through the Swedish Archipelago -- which are a series of 24,000 rocky islands. Most of the islands were growing evergreen trees but some were just rock sticking out of the water. It was a dense fog that morning - so we arrived several hours later than expected -- our trip was slowed by not wanting to run into these islands in the fog. I felt it was a real challenge for the Captain.

            Stockholm is really a series of 19 islands connected by 52 bridges. I felt Stockholm was the most prosperous of the cities visited -- saw signs and buildings for many hi-tech companies.

            Sweden remained neutral during WW II.
