It was Buddy's birthday :) Jantje made a special breakfast for him and we sang the "happy Birthday" song for him. The dog looked at us thinking his humans got totally crazy but he loved his breakfast - lol.

The sun was still shining and we took the chance to stay along the coast one more day. There were only a few days left and after so much rain we were happy with every sunray we catched. I read in my guide book that the village of Smögen should be nice and since it was only a few km to drive we thought it would be nice to go there.

Smögen is one of the liveliest "summer towns" of the Swedish West Coast and it was sooooooo crowded with tourists. I couldn't even imagine so many people in such a small town.

Smögen is well known today for its long, wooden pier (around 600 meters), filled with shops in old fishing huts, which are frequented by a multitude of tourists during the summer.
Smögen is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the Swedish West Coast, well known for its fish, prawns and other seafood, and one of Sweden's few fish markets is located here. We haven't had any fish dishes since we always cook the meals in our camper to save money but what we saw looked very good.

Of course we went to see the wooden pier. Although it was crowded it had its special charme.

In the afternoon we drove further to the village of Kungshamn, which is very close, to look for a campground. We've found one close to the sea which wasn't too expensive. Since it was one of our last nights in Sweden and Buddy's birthday we had a picknick at the shore at night to celebrate the sunset. We took a bottle of wine with us and some food and had an amazing evening :)
