This is probably the last entry regarding this year's Scandinavian trip. The day before we left Sweden for Denmark Freja announced that she'd been looking at the map and had a request to make of her parents. She explained that the area where we planned to spend our last night in Sweden was very near to the longest beach in Sweden, So could they drive down there with us, so that we could all spend the afternoon on this very long beach (several miles long). Her parents were agreeable (as were her grandparents) so the following day we had an early lunch and set off in two cars. We arrived at the beach, above, and found that despite it being a gloriously sunny day, the beach was not (by our standards) at all crowded.
The girls ran into the sea, which Ruth afterwards reported was the warmest she'd ever known the sea to be.
There was a strong on-shore breeze blowing, so the three ladies waded out until every wave lifted them off their feet. A very good time was obviously being had by all. When they eventually returned to the shore, Ann and I said our goodbyes, and drove back to our hotel.
The following morning we began our homeward journey (the reverse of the outward one) and eventually got home a fortnight ago last Sunday. My apologies for the broken and 'bitty' nature of this journal. I'm beginning to get the hang of this thing ( I hope) but the machine has been playing up quite badly.
Will persevere and, hopefully, normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.
