Spring, sand, sea and sun!

What a difference a month makes... Spring officially started here in Denmark on Saturday (1 March) and, though we've still got the odd night of frost, the erantis (Week Seven. Sea or sun?) are out in full force and things are definitely beginning to look up!  To give you an example...  Here's a photo I took of my sweetie-skinny-dipping-buddy V just four weeks ago (6 February).  Freezing fog and ice on the bathing steps.  Yep, you don't have to be mad to be a winterbather, but we find that it helps... ;)



And here's me this morning. The sun was out - hooray, hooray - and we had an air temp of 4c (39.2f).  Okay, okay, so the water is still a tad on the chilly side - about 3c (37.4f). But we're not complaining.  In fact, the sea was so beautiful and clear this morning that we just had to swim twice!



And there's more good news 'cos apparently the Danish weather gods are going to give us a beautiful, Danish spring weekend with sun, sun, sun and temperatures up to 13c (55.4f).  Time to head for the beach!

Hello,

I'm Diana from Uganda (Africa) and I thought I would drop you a line saying I'm greatly enjoying your blog posts.

They have given me an insightful view of Denmark, which I would love to visit.
