Merino Wool Karg Socks by Öjbro


Far out in the northern part of Gothenburg archipelago is Rörö situated. “Rör” is the old norse languages word for reed. Even today you see these big reed patches on the southwestern part of the island. Rörö is a well-known destination for nature lovers and birdwatchers. The nature on Rörö is unique and a large part of the island is a reserve. It is a barren almost treeless island with 260 inhabitants. The bedrock moors are interesting and composed of a rich variety of rock types. "Monkhuvudet" on the island's central section contains rocks from the ice age, that through weathering has given rise to a rich and special flora.



The oddest Rörö resident through the ages is “Otter-Anders” 1885-1980. Otter-Anders lived as a hunter, fisherman and boat builder. There is many tales being told about Otter-Anders, amongst them a story about how he shot a walrus with three bullets in the same hole. This walrus is now stuffed and on display in the Gothenburg Museum of Natural History. Otter-Anders and his father Stin-Olle lived in a house partly build by wreckage.
