Sitting in Lucy being cozy warm at a marina in FALSTERBO, while the wind is howling outside..........Mom had plans to cross the bridge and go to Denmark, but since the alcove (where we sleep) on Lucy catch a lot of wind, she decided to wait until tomorrow, when the wind is supposed to die ............

It's very nice here, so it's OK...........just came in after a long walk looking at all the sailboats........ wind whistles. ............Mom tried to record it 

But now again I'm getting ahead of myself, last night we spent on a field outside a racetrack waiting for the races to start. I didn't go, Mom said it'll be painful for my ears, and I think she was right, because I could hear it while I tried to take a nap.

This kind of racing is called "Folk race" Peoples race,

You can start to compete in folkrace the year you turn 15 years in the so-called junior (but you must have completed a debut race and if you do not have a driving license). From the year you turn 18 will compete in one of the senior classes

After each competition, there's sales of the racing cars. During the competition, a maximum of 15 minutes after the competition's final, will anybody give so-called tender on the race crews. All race cars are out to tender for 6 500 SEK (ca $750 )unless it involved so-called debutants. (plus 200 SEK to the race organizer). After the competition there is a prize draw of submitted tenders. This is conducted by judges / event director. Personal equipment such as seat, seat belts and steering wheel if there is a replacement steering wheel must be removed before the sale takes place. The rule of forced sale at the bid has been introduced, for an easy way to keep costs down for the entire sport: if it is forced to sell the car for 6 500 you learn to not spend more money than that to prepare the car for the race.

If more than one person bid on the same car, there will be a drawing .............so you newer know if you'll win the bid at the end.....

 

           

Cars are not supposed to be driven faster than 55 an the track is made so there should be no need for higher speeds.

 

here's a bunch of leftover stuff, guess all xtra stuff just weigh things down ...........

 

 

This is how they fix thing under the cars............no lift, just manpower and turn thee car on it's side..............and than flip it right back 

 
  Ever so often somone end up on the roof........

 

 

 

No big deal, just get the forklift .................

 

 

Not sure what purpose this guy had, he was driving around and around delivering nothing ? When Mom was a puppy a lot of her guy friends had summer jobs as delivery guys on these mopeds. You never see them anymore....... guys or mopeds

 

  

 

Lot of busy people working between races to make these cars go........the races went on for 3 days, but we were only there for a few hours.......

   


Next we went to an old castle.............Glimmingehus.......which is the best preserved medevial castle in Scandinavia. It was built 1499-1506, and contains many defensive arrangements of the era, such as parapets, false doors and dead-end corridors, 'murder-holes' for pouring boiling pitch over the attackers, moats, drawbridges and various other forms of death traps to surprise trespassers and protect the nobles against peasant uprisings. The lower part of the castle's stone walls are 2.4 meters (94 inches) thick and the upper part 1.8 meters (71 inches).

Construction was started in 1499 by a Danish knight Jens Holgersen and stone-cutter-mason and architect Adam Van Duren, a North German master who also worked on Lund Cathedral. Construction was completed in 1506

This strange vehicle was in the parkinglot ?.................a safari something ?? ...........

 

 


In the moat was blue fish and some really cute duck babies...............didn't see their Mom tough, and that worried me.............Mom said I could be sure she was there somewhere and didn't let me get closer.

   

The castle had toilets built like little cubicles on the fasad, so when you do your business in there it was free fall................I wonder if it was part of their defens system to build one just above the front door ??

 

         

 


As usual Mom has to try everything, shes lucky a kind person was there to  let her out of this contraption

 

 

This was the kitchen, the nicest room in the entire place Mom thought....................so that's  pretty much the same as our house than ?  

 

 

 

walls sure were thick, nice places to sit in the window and look at the view.............or look for intruders... 

     

 


Mom admired this wall hanging................but find it hard to believe it's an original.............couldn't find anyone to ask either

 


The views over the farmland is spectacular,  Mom told me as you fly over this providence it looks like a giant quilt in green, yellow and brown................just gorgeous

 

   

 

Here's a vagon waiting to be used...........

 

 

 

We're feeling nice and cozy in Lucy, who by the way got new wheels yesterday............so she feels no pain either..................all is well ......

Good Night all
