Drottningskär – The Citadel at Aspö

This summer I visited a small island called Aspö in the archipelago of Karlskrona . We just made a quick stop on our way to Bornholm. Aspö  has got a beautiful Citadel, Drottningskär – Queen Citadel with a lovely restaurant. Aspö also got a pilot tower Lotstorn  and you can stay over there!  Aspö Lots Torn Archipelago Hotel If you prefer a hostel they have that as well Drottningskärs Vandrarhem We however stay down in the harbor. Unfortunately the weather was not at its best but we did get around the island a bit and paid a visit to the magnificent citadel.

 Sittin’ in the morning sun
I’ll be sittin’ when the evening comes
Watching the ships roll in
Then I watch them roll away again, yeah I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Watchin’ the tide roll away, ooh
I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Wastin’ time
