Passing traffic

Colorfull Drøbak.

Drøbak was our last stopover on this years summer cruise. We like everything about Drøbak, except that the guest harbor is poorly protected against waves from  passing traffic. We extended our stay with an extra night, and spent more time aboard Ventulus than on previous visits. So, we become very aware of how much pounding the boat had to endure.

Our first stop was Drøbak. This is the second year, in a row, we end up here during a long weekend in May. So, it is time to declare it a tradition.

Well, it opened for business in 2010, but it is new to us. This harbor works best in good weather. It is pretty tight, we witnessed some bumpy maneuvering even though the conditions were good.
