... pools, as well as an outdoor one for seals. A very pleasant afternoon! We had an early dinner in a pub down by the waterfront, the drove back through some rain to the hotel. The next day we visited Aarlborg, which had a large Viking burial ground, with a museum nearby. After that, we had a quick visit to the Utzon Center in town, just for a moments nostalgia about the Opera House, then a drive back along some lakes. A pretty big day all round. The duty free whiskey was well ...
Again it spotted with rain overnight, disturbing our sleep as we (Julie) rushed to close hatches but again, this morning, it was a lovely day and indeed, it stayed that way all day. In fact, it was a classic summer's day, warm, sunny and with a gentle wind. Perfect.
We had less than 20 miles to do today and as such there was no hurry, so we decided to aim for the 10:00 bridge opening slot; 09:00 being too early and 11:00 well, that would be ...

We also needed it on as we waited for the bridge to open, not a long wait as it happened. So in this manner, ...
Up early to head south to the port at Kristiansand to catch the ferry to Denmark. We have a 150 kms trip with the first 70km being along shores of Lake Nisser.The sun is shining and predicted top is 25 degrees. Perfect day. There was hardly a car on the road as we followed firstly the lake and then a beautiful river along the gently winding road to the port. It is still very hilly in the south of Norway but the huge mountain ...
