Couple of scattered shower
Start the day riding down into Skövde.  Do my usual town things.  Head east out of town on an old rail route that is a nice bike path.  Stop in at an old cloister in Varnhems.  Leaving the cloister to the south.  At Amundtorp Gravfält there is a stone ship along with stone circle and stone square.  Next stop is at Hornborga Naturum to look at birds.  At Ekornavallen there are standing stones and large stone graves.  Gudhems Convent is the last stop for the day. 
Love and kisses

 Traveling eastward today in light rain.  At Tidan visit the stone ship of Askeberga.  

Another stone with ruins has a number translation:

“Aam raised the stone after Lande”

“A spear will reach the vandal”

“Heed the dead, destroyer!”

“Heed the dead! Downfall!”

Continue on to the south end the day near a tower with views over the marsh and forest.

Love and kisses

Rainy day as I go to Karlsborg.  Karlsborg fort is an old cannon fort still used by the military.  I could tour the fort but pictures were no allowed in most places around the fort.  Went to some old WW2 gun emplacement protecting Karlsborg but they were over grown with no view.  Ended the day traveling beside the Viken Canal.
Love and kisses
