You know you're in Denmark when... (No such thing as bad weather...)

 

You know you're in Denmark when...

The Danes just love the saying, "Der findes intet der hedder dårligt vejr, kun dårligt påklædning!"  ("There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing!" - Alfred Wainright)  And we have more than our fair share of the wet stuff around these parts...  So a couple of weeks back, at the sprightly age of 46, I found myself investing in my first ever set of adult waterproofs.  This morning the heavens opened (again, again, again) so I took them out for an intensive test drive!

And where was I headed to in the pouring rain?  Why, the beach selvfølgelig!  To go skinny dipping in the cold Danish sea!  Though, truth be told, the sea water felt warmer than the rain this morning: water temp 11c/51f and air temp 12c/53f.  Now, you'll remember from my Winterbathing Guide that you also need to be suitably attired for skinny dipping.  Here's my sweetie friend H with her three essential items: bathrobe, brolly and wellies.  Yep, there's no such thing as bad weather...

Have a marvelous Monday!  Whatever the weather!
