I was surprised that most of the boats were large sailboats - you can't sail in a canal! but Ann pointed out that the canal runs through the two largest lakes in Sweden, Vännern and Vättern, which are great for sailing. A number of the yachts carried French and German flags.
Beyond the guest harbor, the canal seems sleepy and peaceful.
Turning back towards the town, I was surprised to see this sign for a rabbit crossing.
Across the canal, a bunny makes a brave racing dive.
While on the other side, his pals help pull him out.
