Our final bit of sightseeing was the spire of Vor Frelsers Kirke. For a small fee, one is allowed to climb the 400 steps to arrive just under the gold globe of the early 17c spire and to admire the view of the city. The last 100 steps or so go around the outside of the spire and I must confess to feeling a little jittery but the views were worth it.
Again we had a nice lunch, this time on the side of a canal and again, it was time to take the metro back to the boat and the airport and again, the 20 second trick worked. This time, the boat would be really really quiet and Elaine’s unfailing cheeriness and sense of joie de vivre will be sorely missed. She is great to have around. Thank you both for the pleasure of your company the past two weeks.
Back to the boat to fumigate it (my term for deep clean!) and to catch up on the blog. One final little point on the diy front. I’m sure most people know that I can get a little obsessive at times. One of my fixations, for well over a year, has been a broken hinge on one of the locker doors – I have tried everywhere to replace it, driving for hours (literally), scouring the internet and visiting innumerable chandlers. Well today, here in Kastrup in the chandlers, were a whole shelf full of identical hinges – result!! The boat is now complete as is my happiness...
And so, sweaty, to bed. It is 29°C in the cabin and the humidity is very high and the barometer is at an all time low, 994. I wonder what tomorrow will bring as we head southwards to round the bottom end of Zealand.
