Juvika on the island Ylvingen: 3/10, mostly plastic bags and ropes on a stony beach.
As forecasted, the morning is grey, muggy and rainy. We start paddling south following the island shoreline to cross over to the main land at the narrowest passage. As we start crossing the sound we hear thunder and soon we also see lightning in the south and a storm that seems to head at us. We hesitate and turn towards closer locatedskerries. A minute later a lightning hits ust behibd the island we were aiming at, so we turn around, worried about our exposed situation and unknowing about how dangerous the situation might be.
