After the heavy rain of the previous day we woke to sunshine but a lot cooler. It had a very autumn feel.

Karlstad sits on the shores Lake Vȁnern which is 5,600sq kilometres and has a length of 140km. A real whopper! Our campground was not very far from the lake so Daisy’s morning walk was along the shore.

Karlstad was an enjoyable town to wander around as it had many parks and paths along by the river and canal that dissected the town. Most of the original town had been destroyed by fire in 1865 but there was still some elegance to the town. It did have a splendid 12 arch 168 metre bridge which is the longest stone bridge in Sweden. The bridge took fifty years to build (1761 to 1811).

Just off the town centre was the Mariebergsskogen or Karlstad City Park. It was a mixture of open air museum, forest and marshland which was lovely to wander around and all for free.

The day ended with rain again.
