There was no way but to go slowly this morning. The S:t Olavsleden route was constrained between the lake shore and the railway line. These, I assume, are relatively level, but the path through the forest managed to climb and fall, twist and turn, and generally present as convoluted a way as possible to proceed.
While it might have been technically difficult, it was also quite wonderful to be well away from the main road for a change. Trains did disrupt the quiet, but never for long.
Although the road was closer in the afternoon, and had to be walked on for some short stretches, most of the time was on forest path and gravel roads.
I had arranged to stay with the Martinsson family, in Rita's studio by the lake. What a pleasure this was. Peaceful and calm with a deck over the lake shore. A bonus was the massage chair that both Rita and Connie showed me how to use. I had a two delightful meals there, and Rita packed the best packet lunch of the trip to date.
