A zero miles day. We've decided to stay put for today and spend a second night here. It's a lovely spot, looking out to the boats moored in the marina, even though there are camper vans between us and the marina. I went out for a jog and walk first thing this morning. This sun was shining and it was a perfect early morning.
On and off, we chatted to our neighbours, a Danish couple from Copenhagen of roughly our age.
This afternoon, we walked to the shops and bought some freshly baked bread and the fishy things for our seafood platter - smoked herring fillet, pickled herring fillet, salmon mousse, crab salad and gravad lax salmon with dill. This, together with a wedge of lemon and the bread was a meal fit for a king.

A beautiful early morning (G went out jogging!) followed by steady rain all day has turned into a lovely evening, cool but not too cool to eat out and then enjoy a stroll to admire the views across the water.
We braved the rain to walk to the Bageri and the Fiskehus this afternoon for supplies, and G produced a lovely fish platter for supper - marinated and smoked herring fillets, salmon pate, crabbesalat , and gravadlax with crusty seeded bread. Delicious! I have done some washing - the very amiable chap who runs the place didn't charge me for my tokens for the tumble drier "because you are English" - and washed my hair. We have taken advantage of the rain to enjoy the Sunday papers, something we never have time for at home. So, feeling thoroughly relaxed, it's not altogether surprising that we are contemplating another night here!
Most people do seem to be spending several nights here. We have Danish, German, Swedish and Norwegian campervans around us, and the common language is definitely English. But so far we have only spotted one GB number plate, and that was yesterday.
One small problem, how long will my iPad survive? It slid off the front seat onto the gravel two days ago, and the screen is crazed. It is currently being held together with cling film!
