Malmö, Sweden

Gustaff loved boats but disliked the sea. The sea can be rough, wet, and cold, but Gustaff had gotten to the age where safe, warm, and dry were better. Malmö’s dock communities were being replaced by highrise apartments but the city still had old boats, old warehouses, and old values. Gustaff could spend his mornings shaping a piece of teak for a gunwhale then walk a block or two to a pub for a lager and a meal.
