Wonderful pictures to serve as memories for many years! Swedish summer... :-D
Can't get rid of the feeling of Becky and John a little reserved against each other. Seem to have been so since the first team competition; the "channel building"...

I saw the episode and that you discussed the ship in the church. The ship is a "votivskepp" I have no good english translation for that. It was an old tradition in Sweden to give small copies of ships to the churches as a form of thanks giving to Good for protection of the seamen working on the ship. The custom is from late 1500 a.c. and was there for about 200 years. The church that you visited was built around the mid of 1200 a.c.
