The journey to Stockholm was again uneventful and we arrived about 10 minutes early. Being a holiday the Central station was very crowded but the Tourist Office gave us directions and we walked to the hotel in about ten minutes.
The weather was good today but the forecast for the rest of our stay is not so good so we decided to take the two hour boat cruise to help orient ourselves. The city is built on 17 islands and we were given a good idea of the way it is laid out.

We did find a delightful small square (triangle) with a chestnut tree providing lots of shade. The buildings dated from the 1600s and it was pleasant sitting there in a place that the tourists seemed to miss.
