Leaving Karlskrona Mom went north for about 20 miles ? I really thought we were going south to look for the sun ??

Relax she says, just had to check out this town that a friend mentioned ...........Kristianopel.......sounds so international, a little Greek a little Danish...............and it is.

It's such a cute little town, well worth a visit........

     

 

Gorgeous homes and flowers, and of course there's the church in the middle

 

 

In the early 1600 southern Sweden useed to belong to Denmark, and
for centuries Denmark had regarded Sweden as their arch-enemy, and the town of Kristianopel was established in 1660 by King Christian IV of Denmark to strengthen his defense on the Swedish Danish border.
Kristianopel was the first town planned according to the architectural ideals of the Renaissance.
At its height the 100 men of the garrison were responsible for 60 cannons and the protection of the 600-700 inhabitants who lived within the walls.
In 1611the city was stormd by the Swedes and they torched the place, It was later reconstructed and restored, but in 1658 Denmark was forced to cede her provinces of Scania, Blekinge and Halland to Sweden, so the town ceased to be of strategic and commercial importance.
The Danes attempted to regain thier lost territory but without success. In 1678 the Swedes demolished all the fortifications surrounding the town.

Walls still there and we walked all around on top of them

     

Two little ladies having a smoke and a chat..........must be Danish

 

fantastik roses climbing the walls everywhere...........so much nicer it would have been if it was sunny and warm.

   

looks like the Danes forgot a couple of their cannons 

 

This must be a kind of light house from that era ?  they light a fire in the basket 

 

 

 more of the wall ......

 

 


after this stroll we continued a little further south to a town called Ronneby.

We parked at a place made for RVs for free in a remote area close to a golf course, and we soon had a family of deers visiting.

 

       

So we didn't drive much today, weather still stinks even tough it didn't rain much, Mom got a new rubber thingy on Lucys wiper............... it's chilly and gloomy..........one more week of this crap and it's supposed to get better ? ...............I know I've heard that before..................we'll see

In any event we'll continue south first thing in te morning..................good night all
