    ... foam and creating patterns on the sand. Most definitely we wanted to try out the waters there – well suffice to say they are as cold as Baltic sea. But as an extra bonus we saw dolphins swimming quite near to the shore. We caught them to video and we hope you enjoy it. It is rather long though – so, sorry for that.

Due to the wind and the swarm of sand flies we activated plan B of run to the end of the jetty take a few pics and jump back in the car, plan A had been an ambitious run around the lake, if we'd gone ahead I think we'd be blue and very very itchy.

About two hours later the photographers were surprised we were still there, and they asked us and an American to be in the background of some shots.

Who decided a month would be long ...
