Summertime..

..is the title on Scott Thomas’ 26 assignment. Feel free to participate.

r-baadfartenSummer in Denmark can be very nice. But you’ll have to arrange for good weather.
When the temperature rises above 25C and the sun is shining all day, a tour on the lakes North-West of Copenhagen is very nice. Why not try one of the old boats. The oldest have been in service since 1895.

A ‘round-trip’ takes about 1 hour. Its very relaxing. You can arrange your picnic and have a stop or two.

My winter

Scott Thomas has given us his 23rd assignment: Winter.
I’ll write very short about my winter. Acording to the calendar, it covers December, January and February. I think it starts in the beginning of November when I have to leave home early in the morning, long before sunrise, and ends in the middle of March. These dark, cold and wet months is what we call winter. Personally I’m not very fond of it!
But!
After the dark n wet start we usually get frost and snow. Not that I like snow – is has to be removed from the pathways. But the snow gives LIGHT. Bright light in the daytime and enough light at night for seeing outside.
Let me show you a couple of images from my local area:

And if the light isn’t enough to cheer me up, there’s the grandchildren. Fortunately I just have a picture so that you can see the two youngest members of the family:
